It's a birthday girl!

This is Emily. She is child #3 out of 6. She is strong. She is beautiful. She is funny. And now, she is 14 years old! She loves theater--she was in "Once Upon a Mattress" this past summer, and she is in rehearsals for Laura Ingalls in "A Laura Ingalls Christmas." She has also developed quite a gift for photography, so she requested a camera for her birthday! I wonder if I can talk her into doing all my pictures from now on. {wink}

My little baby Emily. It's always so sad to see my kids grow out of being my babies, but so exciting to see them become young adults with abilities and interests I could never have anticipated. Love you, Emma!
