It's her birthday!
Emmalyn celebrated her 9th birthday today. For her birthday, she wanted clothes for Dexter, the quirky Koala. Of course she wanted other things, her list was like a novel, but number one was clothes for the poor naked Koala. As you can see, Dexter is now sporting a knit sweater and matching cap. He's a happy little fellow. Dexter is an unusual friend. He apparently loves to travel and often, during the day, goes on little trips around the house. Emmie will leave him on odd places for his "adventures." He has traveled in the closet, in my computer bag, on the stair railing, and under pillows. He's very worldly. For her birthday, she also wanted to go to lunch. She choose Hometown Buffet because she could pick whatever she wanted, plus they had ice cream! Off to lunch we went, complete with Dexter in her bag. She ate so much she said if we didn't leave at this very moment, "I am going to explode and you'll have to clean me off the walls." Yeah, she's weird :) She had chicken and jello, fries and pizza, ice cream and a cupcake. And, of course, Icee's! She drank nearly three of them! You only turn 9 once in your life after all.
I think, overall, she has had a nice birthday. She got things she wanted, including a trampoline, ball for her zhu zhu pet, a wizards blanket, purse and hat from Claires, and a new design sticker for her wall. And of course, she got to eat whatever she wants...which never happens when Mom's around!
And I know you are thinking..what in the world is she wearing? Well, if you know Emmie, then you know she wears whatever is comfortable. She doesn't much care about it matching. This is actually her third outfit of the day. She started with a lovely pink dress, complete with purple pj pants and little mermaid socks. Outfit two was cammo capris, a brown shirt, and zebra print socks (which she wore to lunch). Now, she is wearing a brown shirt, blue plaid pants, a polka dot jacket, the same zebra socks, and black shoes. She has her own style :)
So...Happy Birthday Em! I'm so glad we didn't have to clean you off the walls :)
