Emily's Gotcha Day!

So we celebrated Emily's Gotcha Day way back on November 19th....a whole year she's been home with us!!! Some days it seems like just yesterday and other days it seems like she's been here for the entire 19 months (at the time)!! I feel like we've come a long way since the day we held her for the very first time. I absolutely cannot imagine this house without in it, that's for sure!! I'm guessing lots of people who don't really know Emily would think she's really serious, but it's just the opposite actually!! She is always doing something crazy, funny or totally out of control and makes us laugh all the time. I LOVE how well she and Brady get along....for the most part!! It's SO sweet how she will rub his back when he cries or how they kiss each other before bed or how Brady "reads" to Emily....just makes me smile!! We couldn't love her any more and she fits into our family just PEFECTLY!!!

We didn't do anything super special, but we did get Chinese food, Shrimp Lo Mein for the kids because it's their favorite and hot fudge sundaes for dessert!! It was great to spend the day as a family of FOUR!!!



hmmm, what is this?

I think I like it....

tastes pretty good....
