Emilia 9th Birthday

Emilia turned 9 years old this week. She is growing into a beautiful  young girl - both inside and out. I love her happiness and quick laughter. She is friendly to everyone, she is helpful, kind and loves music.

This year we celebrated her birthday early in the month because we were going to be out of town on her actual birthday. She got her favorite dessert: strawberry trifle. 

For presents she received a new wrist watch. It is atomic so the time is always right- which drives her brother crazy. He receive a watch shortly after Emilia got hers and he keeps trying to change the time so it is accurate to the second. He wants to prove to her that her watch is wrong but has not figured out that the time on Emilia's watch is always accurate. 

Emilia loves to do crafts so she requested a beginning sewing craft book. We've begun working on a monster stuffed animal using one of the patterns in the book. She was very proud of herself when she sewed her first button on. 

She also received the game battleship. She enjoyed playing against her dad and brother.
From us she received a new MP3 music player and a speaker so she can listen to music without headphones.
