Emma at Power Sports

Emma was invited to a two-for-one birthday party for her friends Noah and Grace. This was her first time in a location like this and she had a ton of fun. We look forward to getting her involved in activities like this in the future.

Getting Ready for Aggie Sports

These are some items that we helped to make for Abigail to enjoy Aggie sports with her Dada.

Abigail Sitting Up at 2 Months

Abigail does not like to miss any of the action. She prefers to sit up and be able to see what is going on around her, so we purchased another baby seat. The first one we had Ray sold because Emma did not like it. You can see Dada with his girls on the floor supervising the sitting and sisterly love.

Super Sun Glasses

Emma is now into wearing sunglasses. She has about six different pair that her Nana has bought her over the last 2 years.

Emma's 2nd Birthday Party at the Carrao House

Emma and Mama get a picture in before Emma goes to lay down because she is not feeling good.

Nana and Poppa along with cousin Brandie Corrao and her family hosted Emma's 2nd birthday party at the Corrao house so all of our family could attend to help us celebrate her special day. Nana designed this beautiful cake, and it tasted better than it looked!!

Ray holding Emma as everyone sings happy birthday to our precious girl. At this time she was not felling well at all. She had started running a fever, plus she never got to have her full nap since we drove into town for the party.

Nana and Dada helping Emma enjoy her yummy cake, which of course required an outfit change before we could open presents.

Now its time for presents! By this time Emma has had a nap and has been cleaned up from eating her yummy cake.

Dada helps Emma open all of her gifts. Emma brings the trash to Nana and Mama after opening each present, we can see that she has some of her Mama's OCD tendencies already with wanting to keep things clean.

This is a picture of Nana holding Abigail and Emma with her Dad Grandpa Chesser.

The Pheris Girls! The most important girls in the lives of Poppa, Dada, and Uncle E.

Susan getting to hold Abigail for the first time. With this celebration for Emma's birthday it was the first time that many of them were able to meet Abigail. Some met Emma for the first time as well.

Aunt Trish holding Emma and trying to console her due to her feeling bad. At this point our little girl was just miserable and everyone was doing all they could to make her feel better.

Aunt Sharon holding Abigail for the first time! She had meet her before this day, but did not have the chance to get to hold her.

Maw getting to meet and hold Abigail for the first time. It is such a wonderful thing to have the ability for my girls to meet so many of their relations. We look forward to more gatherings and the girls getting to know even more of their family.

Cake Time - Emma's 2nd Birthday Party

Emma getting a little shy as everyone sings Happy Birthday to her.

Everyone gathered together to sing and get their share of some yummy cup cakes.

Emma getting ready to dig into her cake. I love this picture of us together.

After tasting she decides she really likes it and starts to dig in!

Unlike her Dada, Emma actually likes fondant, that is what the Minnie is made of that she is eating.
The above three pictures is showing the progress our Emma made with her cake. She had fun and we still can't believe she is 2!!

Emma sharing all her tasty icing with her Aunt Heather. She was really into the icing if you can't tell it is all over her face, clothing, and table.

This is probably one of my favorite pictures of Emma. After enjoying her party and devouring her birthday cake she is ready for a bath!

Emma's 2nd Birthday Party in Bryan

The favors that Emma picked out at Target to give her guests in their goody bags.

Emma got her own cup cake to have during the celebration, it was very tasty!

Emma picked out her own theme for her birthday this year. She is crazy about Mickey Mouse Club House, so she went with a Minnie theme, but of course Mickey had to have is share of the theme as well.

The decorations here on the china cabinet are Mickey and Minnie toys, books, and dolls that she has been given over the last year.

Before opening gifts all the kids gathered to have some quality play time in Emma's room.

Emma and her Dada getting ready to open all the gifts that her friends brought her!

Emma had many of her friends help her open her gifts. She was very tidy as she opened the gifts, she would bring me the trash almost every time she opened a gift.

Emma taking time out of her birthday party to give her little sister some love.


This is my girls in some yellow outfits getting ready to meet Poppa for some food : )
Also in the pictures is Emma play hide and seek.
