Happy 11th Birthday Emma!!

CRAZY Hair, don't care!
The elves and reindeer had to come back for the party!
We walked in (not tardy!) just in time to hear her name on the birthday announcements for the day! So we had to snap a picture of her last Turnbow birthday ribbon.
This girl is all about cooking these days so we had to find just the right place for her party. We had been planning for months and just couldn't figure out how to pull off a full-scale Chopped Birthday Party, but when we called William's Sonoma, they were more than willing to do not-too-kiddie class for our group of sweet tweens (plus two extra sweet teens who always make Emma feel special by coming to her parties!)

Emma wanted a "grace's patisserie" color scheme for the party and it turned out so cute. Thank you to Nana for making the cutest aprons! They really just made the party.

She is not a cake lover so we got petit fours instead and they were delicious! We love Shelby Lynns!
She loved the whole party, but I know she was so excited about the Mock-tails. We have 10 years before the big 2-1 and she says she will NEVER drink that stuff, but this girl can put away some fake wine and mock-tails like nobody's business! And she better have a proper glass, or it might be right out of the bottle! Ha!
They made delicious pasta... 

And spiralized salads.

The homemade ravioli was so good!
How many pictures do I have with these sweet girls blowing out candles together?  
A bunch! Here's the first!
Thank you to Williams Sonoma for making her 11th birthday just perfect!!
Happy, Happy 11th Birthday sweet girl! We are so thankful for your sensitive, caring personality and your willingness to always help. You bring so much colorful art and beautiful music into our life and your sports-loving parents and brother may not appreciate enough, but we are learning and they definitely make us better, more well-rounded people. You basically cook dinner for us every single night and it is so delicious! You are so funny and you appreciate my silly pins and we love to laugh together. We love you so much and wish you many more happy birthdays!

Amazeum Un-Field trip 5th grade

I never dreamed that the fifth graders would have so much fun at the Amazeum. They were actually really good and I only lost one kid!

They act so big and grown up, but they literally would have played in the this area with the 3 year olds all day long. I loved it!

You can tell her Daddy works for a major food producer because even Emma knew that this is a major cross contamination problem. Ha!

They were making clouds in their hands! We had a great field trip!
And this is random and Udi's was great about providing a coupon for a replacement, but this is one thing that sucks about gluten free bread.
