Emily Turns 8!!

The last time we went to Holliday, we missed out on seeing some of our favorite people: Casey, Amie, Kayleigh, Emily and Nattie! So, Crockett, Bowen and I decided to make a quick trip to see them all and help CELEBRATE Emily's 8th birthday. I was quite apprehensive about making the drive with Bowen, all by myself. He completely surprised me and made it 2 hours before we had to stop, on the way there and the way home! Go Bowen! Once we got to Holliday, Casey, Amie and the girls came by Grandmaw's to visit and meet Bowen. Crockett was SUPER EXCITED to see them. They always have the best time together! I couldn't believe how each one of them had grown. After a quick visit, they had to leave and get ready for the party. Shortly after they left, Marla and Kylee came by. Marla couldn't believe how much Bowen had grown! He has changed A LOT since the last time we visited! While they were there, it started POURING! It was so windy and a little scary, but it finally blew over. We were so glad to have such great company! As soon as they left, we had to get ready for the PARTY! It was at First Baptist in Holliday in the Family Life Center, so luckily, we didn't have far to go! Crockett was excited to get there and ran right in and began playing. They had tattoos, jump ropes, basketballs and footballs. But first, PIZZA! All they kids ate and then played some more. Crockett kept using the jump rope as a lasso. He said he was "going to get the cows at the Parish" :) He also had a great time chasing all the older girls. I am sure it is a sign of things to come! HA! Emily had a great time opening all her gifts. She got LOTS of fun things! Instead of a cake, she had cupcakes! They were yummy! She even had a cupcake pinata to match! The kids all had so much fun getting candy, eating cupcakes, and running around. It was a great time to catch up with the girls and Mimi, who made the drive from Oklahoma. Crockett was thrilled to see her and greeted her with a BIG hug and kiss! We had a great time and are so glad we made the trip for the special day. Happy 8th Birthday, Emily Jane!
