Emma's Big Top Circus Party

Ladies & Gentlemen, Children of all Ages!!
Come One, Come All, Emma has turned the big TWO years old!
Emma is obsessed with Jojo's Circus so we had a Jojo's Circus Party to celebrate our little girl's 2nd year. We had quite an audience at our circus filled with family and friends. We enjoyed "circus" foods including a big top cake, cotton candy and red licorice ropes. The kids enjoyed face painting and foam clown noses too. It was a great day to celebrate Emma!

Emma Meets More Family Members

Yesterday we took our first trip out of Orange County to visit family we have not seen in quite some time. We drove down to El Cajon with our friend and nurse Melinda for Mark's Mom's cousin Tim's wedding reception. This was very special for our family because Emma met several family members including Mark's Aunt & Uncle & his cousin's & their kids...Etc..We had such a wonderful time sharing our daughter with our loved ones many of who met her for the first time. We took about 150 pictures so here are all of them, just kidding, I edited out quite a few. This was such a special day. We look forward to many more days like this.

Home..a Wonderful Place

We brought Emma home today, and she was so excited to get in the car, see her house, play at the park and sleep in her bed after 21 days at the hospital. As you can imagine, we are overjoyed to have our girl home. Mark is happy that both his girls are home and I can't wait to sleep in my own bed tonight. Home is a wonderfl place and we are so blessed to have such a wonderful place to call home. Thank you for all of your support and prayers.
