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.
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.
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.
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!
