Apparently August is a popular birthday month - it starts with Solon, then Scott's Dad (Dale), followed by me, my dad and then Emilie. Throw my parents anniversary in there and back to school and as I mom use to say, you have yourself the most expensive month of year besides December :). Besides the expense, comes a lot of fun and fanfare! Birthdays for us moms are fun but a bit anti-climatic compared to the weeks upon weeks of celebration we provide our kids. We go through a whole box of candles per child per year.
Justin texted a week before Emilie's birthday and wanted to surprise her with a meal out at her favorite restaurant, PJ Changs, and wanted us to surprise her by coming as well. It was so fun, we were able to sit outside, the kids entertained each other and we laughed the night away. It was so fun and we were so glad we could share in Emilie's special day. She has been a true gift during a very difficult season of life! We can't wait to meet the littlest "M" in just a few short weeks.

The kids huddling to come up with their game plan...
Apparently the cold winter months bring lots of August babies and lots of fun celebrations!!!
