We had ice cream the other night and Emma didn't want it in a bowl, she wanted it in a cone like mom and dad. So, we gave her a cone with a little ice cream, and she loved it! Well for the first couple of licks and then she was "all done, mmm yummy!"

Princess Tent

Last week we had a ward temple night and decided to leave Emma at one of her friends house while us parents went to the temple. Emma loves to play at "Evie's" house because they have a lot of fun toys! Well, they happen to have a little Nemo playhut/tent, and Emma was having a really hard time parting with the tent so they let us borrow it for a few days. I knew that when we would eventually have to give it back to them, Emma would throw a fit. I looked online and found a cute little Princess Tent at Toys R Us that I went ahead and bought. It took a while to get here, but it was just in time! It is super cute and she likes to hide in the tent from the "monsters!" We are going camping for Labor Day weekend with the Erickson clan and Emma has decided that she needs to bring her "Princess Tent too!" We'll see how that goes! But all in all it was a great inexpensive investment for her to play in!

Visit with Aunt Shantel and Cousin Zoey in Idaho!

The first weekend in August my sister Shantel and her little girl Zoey flew in from Washington to Idaho. We made a trip up there to visit and stayed for a few days. We were so excited to see them! (We did miss Bryce though!) That Saturday I had my 5 year class reunion. I had a lot of fun, but poor Ryan probably didn't have as much fun. He was a great sport about it all which I really appreciated. It was fun to see everyone. The rest of the weekend we spent playing and having tons of fun seeing Zoey. She is getting so big! Emma had a lot of fun, with the exception of a few "Mine! Mine!" wars, she loved playing with Grandma and Zoey. We decided to get the girls pictures taken at JC was fun but neither was real cooperative. We did get a few cute snaps of them, so I will put those up later. The next day Shantel and I got our hair cut. Shantel's hair turned out super cute, mine on the other hand was kind of a nightmare. I brought a picture to show the girl how I wanted it cut, and needless to say it doesn't look anything like the haircut I wanted and much shorter. I can't wait to grow it out. From now on I am just sticking with my mom cutting my hair. We had so much fun visiting and really hope that Shantel and her family get to come and visit again sometime soon!

Just Like Daddy!

Daddy tends to get bloody noses often and Emma has taken notice. She wants to be like daddy so she rips tiny pieces of tissue and sticks them up her nose. The only problem is that we can't always see the tiny pieces in her nose until she starts to sneeze them out!

Sooooo Tired!

Emma has been a stinker when it comes to going to bed. She keeps opening her door and playing, so we put a child proof knob on her door. I went to check on her and make sure she was sleeping, and I couldn't get the door open. I pushed it open a little bit and squeezed in to take a picture of her asleep on top of her doll, in front of her door. I gently moved her to her bed, but she never even opened her eyes! What a cutie!

Feeding the Ducks!

We took Emma to feed the ducks at a little pond here in Ogden the other weekend. She had so much fun! It was a great activity for us all to enjoy. Ryan and I probably had as much fun as Emma. We invited some friends of ours the next day and we had about a dozen geese surround us. The girls were a little scared but had a lot of fun.
