My Birthday Girl

Posted on January 7th, by Amy in Celebrations. 16 comments

Thank you for the birthday wishes for Emmalie!  She had a great day being the center of attention and extra treats too :)  I’m behind (again) (as usual) in responding to comments, but I’m so glad that you are excited about quilters from the Quilt Festival being featured regularly!  I’m looking forward to it!  I’m thinking our first installment will start within a couple of weeks.  

Back to Emmalie –

 She was blessed with new clothes.

A huge box of crayons – every Kindergartners dream!

And quite a few Littlest Pet Shop figures, including this plush one.  (We now have 3 girls collecting the little creatures!) 

She requested the butterfly cake again, with everything going on in our home I asked her to pick two colors, knowing that I didn’t have a lot of time to decorate it!  (Go take a look at last year’s cake.

She got them all on the first go!  She is a blessed little girl with all the love and presents she received today.  Joe and I are blessed by her sweet and gentle spirit.  We love you Emmalie!
Here’s the rest of what I’ve been up to – painting the living room!  My Christmas present from Joe was the paint, and his ability, for the living room.  He’s been working non-stop, so I thought it might take months to actually happen.  Much to my surprise, he showed up Tuesday afternoon early, and suggested that we begin painting!  I ran to Home Depot and Wal-Mart (BD shopping) and came back with all the necessities.   He got us started, but I spent most of Wednesday doing my best to paint two large walls.

We are covering the gold with a tealy blue called Jamaican Sea, and the ceiling is back to white.  It feels so fresh and bright – I’m loving it!!  Now what to do with those curtains. . . ???  I’ll post more make-over pictures when my computer isn’t pushed up against the stairs!

    What a refreshing color. It will make the Midwinter Blahs fly out the window. Great selection. Happy Birthday to Emmalie.

    How did you make that awesome butterfly cake? Do you have a mold for it? What fun!

    I'm pretty much a chicken when it comes to painting bold colors on walls, although when we did some remodeling five years ago I did let the boys pick a striking blue for their walls. But that Jamaican Sea is really pretty and tempting! :-)

    What a great birthday! I also got painting for Christmas! My boyfriend has agreed to paint two rooms in our apartment… I told him it was the best gift he could've gotten for me. As soon as the tree is down, we'll be painting up a storm too!

    I really want to re-paint our living room – it's red…but I may have to pick a color that goes with my curtains :-)

    Umm….you think only kindergartner's love crayons…I beg to differ….I'm going to be 51 in May and I would LOVE a big old box of crayons. I just can't get over how much bigger the box is from the 64 we so coveted!:)

    She sure looks cute up next to that new wall paint!;)

    That cake is so cute! Happy Birthday to her! Glad we're not the only ones with a growing LPS collection :D

    Oh, and I LOVE that blue. I want that color somewhere here :D But convincing Brian is a whole other story. Had you painted the orange and you are just going a different direction now?

    Have fun with that!!!

    Could she be any cuter!?!?! Don't blink or you'll find yourself taking her out for a drink on her 21st birthday (as I did with my daughter in December) — which is also pretty fun! Oh, why do they grow up so fast!
