Happy Birthday Macy and Makayla!!

Emmy Cate’s cousins, Macy and Makayla, turned one last week and had a fun birthday party this weekend! 

We tried to get a cute family picture since we don’t ever seem to have any of all three of us.  It was a challenge to say the least!  Emmy Cate was so hyper she didn’t want any part of it.  We have pretty much conceded that fact that she won’t smile, so we are happy to get one of her looking at the camera.

I managed to sneak in a quick pic right when we got there before she had a chance to get wound up!!     mom and EC

After hamburgers, hot dogs, beer and a slideshow, it was time for cake.

 Happy Birthday!!!


The next morning, Emmy Cate woke up to her usual Sunday tradition in NC of playing with Papaw!!  Together, they visited neighbors, checked out the garden, ran around the yard, and even checked out a neighbor’s trampoline!  Said trampoline was exceptionally dirty and Emmy Cate came back black from head-to-toe!  She was so dirty, Papaw declared she needed a “country bath”!!  He stripped her down, put her in the galvanized tub, and turned the hose on her!  She loved every minute of it!

After her bath, she tried on the Cowgirl boots for the first time and had the hardest trouble walking.  We couldn’t stop laughing watching her try to navigate with those on because they were so stiff.  Finally, I made them take them off because it just became mean – poor thing!!

After lunch, family came by to visit and Emmy Cate got plenty of love from her great grandmother, aunts and uncles!!
