I can not beleive it is has been over a month since I lasted posted. Life has just been moving right along and I have just not found the time to sit down and post an update. Our week days have been filled with school, homework, dinner and baths and wake ups to do it all over again and our weekends have been smacked full of fun with family and friends, out of town trips, birthday parties and dinners....that is one of the perks that comes from being blessed with such great family and friends... here are a few snapshots of Emma's Sept and beginnings of Oct 2011.
And there you have it our Month in a nutshell!

Emma had her 5th Birthday Party today, at the Kroc Center where the kiddos painted and partied "Like a Kroc Star"! It was such a fun time for Emma and nothing makes us smile happier then to see the BIG smile she had on her face...below are some snapshots from her party! She will not be officially 5 until Tuesday so we will party again with the Grandparents and Uncle Trey, Aunt Lib and Kinsley...per Emma's request we will be headed out to eat ribs!

Kindergarten that is! Emma has had a great last few weeks of Summer before School Starts! What a difference a year can bring. So not where we thought we would be in life but yet so far from where we were last summer!
This picture just melts my heart. I came in Emma's room one night and she was watching TV with her hands propping her head up like this, to most parents of a 4 year old this means nothing....to me it is perfect. Not so many months ago our sweet angel could not lift her head up much less have the coordination to get her hands to her face! It is moments like these I hope I don't ever forget
And this...is our very own Blythe Bearcat!! Kindergarten look out!!
Here is Emma outside her classroom. She has Ms Chavous this year, for those of you "old" Blythe Bearcats like me ..yes.. the same Ms Chavous we had years ago...Jeremy and I could not be more estatic with her teacher and para pro this year!!
And this my friends is Emma's Kindergarten tote....newly decorated by Jeremy himself! Emma could not have a better Daddy...one day I am sure she will Thank me for finding him!
Today Emma went to Kayleys Birthday Party (a friend of hers since daycare she is on the left her other friend is Carlie also from daycare!) So good to see these 3 Buddies back together again! These girls and their families have been such Blessings in Emma and our lives ever since her diagnosis. We love them all dearly and hope we do a good job at keeping these girls in touch. They will all be starting Kindergarten this year in 3 different schools!

Our summer has been full blast (and I can not say we are not happy about that) last summer I would consider to be a real BUST ...so all though we are all exhausted and busy I would not trade it for anything. We are making some wonderful memories here....
Emma and Kinsley were very Patriotic for our Trip to Fort Gordon for their 4th of July Festivities.
It was very HOT but the girls had fun dancing to the band.
When the band was over and the crowd moved over to the other side to get ready for the fireworks Emma and Lib layed back to look at the clouds and see what they thought each one looked like.
One of Emma's new favorite past times...she lays on her bed to watch TV and then pull herself up on her knees and then sometime up tall on her knees balancing and YELLS for Jeremy and I to come look at what she can do...
And then back down to do it all over again....
July 4th night all the kiddos on Aunt Debe's and Mr Pat's front lawn to watch the fire works from Patriots Park after a fun day of swimming and eating.
Sweet Madelyn and Emma getting ready for VBS week at our Church!
Our very own Statue of Liberty -- As the VBS theme was traveling to the Big Apple!
We have been blessed beyond measure this summer and can't believe then in just 2 short weeks our Emma Rhae will be starting Kindergarten!! We are going to squeeze as much out of these last 2 weeks as possible.
Don't forget Emma's Extravaganza Sept 11th from 10-6 at Trendz Salon!

Our vacation week was awesome. Weather was great, Family was together, Memories were made. Here are snapshots of some of the fun!
This was a fun night! We went to a restraunt on the inlet that had live music in the lounge down stairs while we waited, Emma clapped and bopped her head so much that her and Grandma downed a whole bowl of complimentary popcorn! Emma and Kinsley even went out on the marsh to see goats and a peacock!
I will say Emma has little fear...she got right out in the ocean even rode some waves on the boogie board while we held her.
Emma's night was topped off with Build A Bear where she built her Beach Puppy "Myrtle" complete with bathing suit and flip flops!
Who can resist ...don't we all eat our breakfast in panties and a big pink bow in our hair!
We took the girls out early Friday morning and got their pictures on the beach. We have been doing this with Emma for 4 years now...and they always turn out great so happy to have Kinsley with us this year!!
And finally the girls taking one last gaze at the ocean, soaking it all in until the next beach trip...which we are all hoping happens very soon!!!
