Happy Birthday, Emma!

Today we celebrate the 6th birthday of Emma Katherine! I can't believe she's already 6! Yikes! :-)
How blessed we are to have Em in our family! She never ceases to bring laughs and smiles and is so full of life and fun!
Her newest "thing" is "tap" dancing with William all around the house. :-D When she's not doing that she is "watching" William and/or entertaining him, helping around the house (she's very good at folding towels!), helping Caleb with the chickens or just being Emma. :-)

Emma sporting her adorable grin! :-D

I love this "artsy"! :-)
Garrison gets the credit for this one!

Some facts about Emma:

- She was the first "home birth baby" in the McDonald family!
- She loves to play "Cowboys" more than anything and loves wearing her cowboy boots!
- If she's not wearing her cowboy boots she's wearing her flip flops. As she's dearly attached to them. :-D
- She's the youngest girl in the family!
- She wants a pet lamb. :-)

Emma Kate is truly a joy to our family! I thank the Lord for seeing fit to bless my family with darling little sister! :-)

Emma and William being their usual goofy selves. :-)

Emma was wearing her PJ's and wanted to dance with William.
But William refused to dance with Emma unless she put a skirt on. :-D It was so cute! :-D

Emma in Texas several years ago.

William kisses Emma amongst the flowers. :-)

Happy 6th Birthday, Emma Kate! I love you!

Happy birthday Emma! One thing I noticed about that bundle of energy when we were out there in May, was that she is nowhere near shy at all!! I am sure God is going to use that trait in marvelous ways in the future...

Love the pictures!!

Aw, happy birthday to your little sister =) I'm Cait, and I saw your page on Jasmine's blog. I was looking for blogging likeminded girls and am so encouraged to have found several at once! None of my friends in this country think similarly.
I'm sorry if you've gotten this twice, it didn't seem to work the first time!
