On June 9th Emmeline had her last day of school. She had such a great year in pre-school. We were so blessed to be able to get into the public preschool program. She made a lot of friends, had a lot of fun and had a great start towards learning to love education. I am really proud of her and all her accomplishments so far. And I cant believe how fast my little girl is growing!!

Brett and I had a couple of great birthdays. The celebrations started on the 5th. We invited our gaming friends over to hang out with us after the girls went to bed. We watched the Mavs game (which they lost) then Brett blew out the candles of his Boston Creme Pie. That is his usual birthday cake request. We also played a fun board game, Rail Baron, and Brett won. So that was good. I had fun watching Brett blow out all 30 of his candles.
Then on June 6th, Bretts actual birthday, the girls and I set up all 30 of his birthday posters and made 30 cake balls. The girls also had fun wrapping the presents they picked out for Brett at the dollar store.
When Brett got home he saw his posters and I think he liked them. Brett also unwrapped his presents (a Cars washrag from Mabel, a toy dart gun from Emmeline and a fire wallet from me) we went to a Mexican restaurant that we have been wanting to try. It was pretty delicious. We had a fun night.
Then on the 7th it was my birthday. The girls and I took it easy in the morning. Brett came home from work early and after dropping the girls off at a babysitter we went to see X-Men First Class. I thought the movie was AWESOME! For dinner we had some yummy Panda Express and played some Mario Party as a family before the girls went to bed. Then Brett and I watched the Mavs game and yeah. . . they won!! Happy Birthday to me :). Brett and the girls also got me some beautiful flowers.
The next day some of my girlfriends took me to Chick fil a for lunch. mmmmmmmmmm.
We had a wonderful birthday time and both Brett and I really appreciate all of the calls and facebook/email birthday wishes from so many of our family and friends. Thanks for making our birthdays so special!!

Last week, on June 1st, Emmeline lost her first tooth and it was very exciting. Well tonight imagine my surprise when she runs out of bed (again. . .it was after she went to bed) yelling, "I lost another tooth!!" Man, at this rate she wont have any left!! But the tooth fairy came again and left another dollar. Emmeline was thrilled!

Bretts 30th birthday is in a couple of days, on June 6th. I asked him how he wanted to celebrate his big day and he said he would be happy just doing something with our family. hmmm. So how am I supposed to make it special?? The girls and I decided to use an idea I read about in FamilyFun Magazine (the idea was ironically submitted by a friend of mine in my ward here in Flower Mound). We made 30 posters to surprise Brett with on his big day. Okay, we actually only made like 9 BIG posters. The rest were just done on regular construction paper. . we dont have a very large apartment to display 30 big posters. The girls and I have been working on them all week and we are excited to see how he likes them on his birthday.

As unbelievable as it seems, Emmeline's first year of school is just about over. For the end of the year her school put on the Lillie J. Jackson Follies, where each class presented a song they had been learning all year long. Emmelines class song is "We All Go Traveling By." It is a cute little song and it was really fun to go and watch her perform it with her class. A couple highlights from the video: Emmeline trying to take over another boys prop, much to his dislike and then for a quick second there at the end, Em decides to dig for gold. Yup, thats my girl. :)

Well it happened. Emmeline finally wiggled her tooth out. We had put the girls to bed and were about to settle down for the night when we heard triumphant screaming from the other room. "MOM. MOM. DAD. Come quick. My tooth. It's out!!!" She was so excited. She immediately had to call her Grandma and her Nana. :) Congrats Emmeline. And the tooth fairy came. And left a dollar. Awesome!!
