Celebrating Emily's 16th Birthday

Tuesday was the day we chose to celebrate Emily's birthday. The actual day was the previous Saturday but we had an incredibly busy weekend so we opted to go out another day so we could relax and enjoy it more. She is wearing her "Back to the Future" shirt (birthday present). We took her to the Darren Romeo Magic show at the Smoky Mtn Opry which she had been wanting to see and then out to her choice of lunch and dinner. We also bought her all the seasons of Family Ties (which she watches with ClearPlay). We also had her a little party after church Sunday night. All in all, I think she had a GREAT 16th birthday...which she will always remember.

Here is a picture of Emily with Darren Romeo and his assistant. The magic was really 
good. It is a matinee show at the Smoky Mtn Opry. He was also super
friendly and took time to meet and have pictures with anyone who wanted
them after the show. 
She also got autographs...which anyone who knows Emily...knows that she LOVES.
She simply adores getting autographs of those in the "fandoms". She has acquired 
quite a few. 

Anyway, she seems really, really happy with her birthday and of course, that makes
ME really, really happy because nothing makes me happier than to see
her happy. :)

Sweet 16

Happy Sweet 16 to my baby girl. My, how the time has flown! I wish
I could slow it down. She has fulfilled every dream this mother
could have had in a daughter. I love spending every minute with her.
She has proven to me that life with a teenager doesn't have to be grief
and arguing...every day with her in our lives has been nothing but JOY.
God Bless You, sweet Emily! Love you with my heart!!!
