Happy Birthday to Emma!!!

Well this is sorts late, as her birthday was Saturday, but we're all just getting over the weekend, so this is the chance I've had to post. Emma turned 6 years old on Saturday. Wow, that's kinda scary. She had a great day. She woke us up extra early, fun, to ask for eggs & toast for breakfast. Then, after lounging a bit, we went out to lunch at Fazoli's, and then to the salon to get our hair cut. It was a family affair, as all of us, except for Sarah, got our hair cut. I desperately needed it, as the last time I got my hair cut was in April...I think. Then we went to Wal-Mart to get some last minute birthday party things, and then it was off to the SAC bowling alley for her party. While I'd invited her whole K class, I was happy to see that only 7 of the 16 kids I invited actually showed. I think that was our limit. It kept the party short & sweet. The kids had a blast bowling, then really had fun with the cake, a Coldstone cake, yum. And when she opened her gifts, the boys were kinda dumbfounded as to why the girls ketp getting all excited over Barbie toys & horses. Guess it's a girl thing. It only lasted about an hour and a half, which was the perfect amount of time for 6 year old attention spans.
Then yesterday we had someone showing the house, which Jeff was NOT happy about. But, our landlord promised us that we only need to deal with this for another 3 weeks. Either they'll sell the duplexes, or the contract with the realtor will expire. Either way, we're thinking we'll be out of here next July. So, we're looking into buying a house again. Since Jeff has had to slow down on school to halftime, it's going to take us twice as long to get outta here. So, buying a house might not be too terrible. We just have to make sure it's cute enough to sell when we need to get outta here.
And I think we've come to conclusion that Sarah is extremely sensative to milk fat. Or something in liquid milk that makes her projectile vomit all over the place. This has happened 4 times in the past 2 1/2 weeks. Ok, NO MORE MILK FOR THE BABY. Guess it's soy or rice milk time, joy. She's cool with cheese, yogurt & ice cream, just not milk. Little girl keeps us on our toes!
