This is my second blog written to capture memories made with our grandchildren. The link to my first blog, "Meet Our Grandchildren," is listed below in the right hand column. Hope you have time to read some of it. Our journey to becoming grandparents has been full of adventure and much love.

Emily Turns "6"

Emily 's second "6th" birthday party was celebrated at Gramma's and Grampa's with her annual pool party. We all had a great time. The kids enjoyed the pool and the adults enjoyed chatting with each other. Aunt Stacy made Em's birthday cake. It was in the shape of a butterfly, but was actually individual cupcakes; unique, like our Em:~)

There were presents galore. And Em loved every one of them. She certainly has lots of crafts to do. Gramma and Grampa gave her the most beautiful beauty salon chair. It is for her American Girl dolls.

Emily had a hot, very sunny day to celebrate her birthday. But the next day the entire eastern coast suffered extreme devastation from the effects of Hurricane Irene. The recovery will be long and arduous.

My happiest times are those spent with family, especially the children; all the children. Their smiles make me smile and I forget whatever worries I have. Thank God for bringing us all our children.
Hugs and kisses,
