We did let Emma open one present that night, a Noah's Ark video game for the DS. She loved this, and played with it the rest of the day. On her actual birthday, we hosted a play group for her friends, and had mini-cupcakes that Emma and I baked the day before. Isaiah & Eliza Atkinson, Kara & Cassie Dickinson and Ester Raquel Trejo all came to play with Emma. We had lots of balloons around for them to play with, and sent a few home. Emma loved sharing her cupcakes and was very proud that she had helped make them. It was a good time on her birthday.
Grandpa & Grandma Cawood came that afternoon to give Emma her presents and share dinner with us. After Glenn got home, Emma opened all her presents, and then we went to Red Robin for dinner. Emma waited oh so patiently to get her balloon, and then they brought two and sang to her. As much as she loved the balloons, she didn't the singing. Oh well, she had a good birthday and got to see lots of those she loves.
