Emily’s 4th Birthday!

Saturday we celebrated four years with our baby girl, Emily Elizabeth. 

Four amazing, crazy, wonderful years.

This year we had a simple birthday party. We didn’t have tons of decorations or people but boy oh boy did we celebrate. From donuts for breakfast, Chick Fil-A play time, cake, and pizza. 

We had so much fun.
It wouldn’t be a birthday without a “few” photos

Cake was definitely a must too!

 She requested an orange cake that tasted like strawberries. 

Whatever you want baby girl, whatever you want. 

She received what might just be the largest stuffed Minnie Mouse in existence.

Seriously guys. I can’t even explain how huge that doll is.

Maybe this will help a bit.

It is HUGE. Thank you Meme and Papa for that one *Ha*! Seriously though it might just go down as one of the best deals ever. They located it in the clearance section it didn’t have a tag so they went to the register to price check it. 30 minutes later, they were finally given a price of $37! What?!?! I know for fact a Minnie that large is generally around $200. I really hope this little lady doesn’t grow out of her 3 year Minnie phase anytime too soon.

Oh look, more Minnie Mouse stuff. After 3 years of nothing but Minnie, we thought she had it all. Clearly we were wrong. 

Those dimples, oh my heart.
Her silly cousin has photo bombing down.

The perfect pair of high tops for a Minnie Mouse loving girl.
What a wonderful day of celebrating 4 years with this beautiful, silly, hilarious, clever, sweet girl.

We love you so much Emily!

Happy Birthday!

  • That Minnie is HUGE and I love the sneakers! What a fun birthday!

  • Yes it is. Terrifyingly huge at that!

    Thank you so much!

  • I know!!! It was a crazy insane buy, but oh my goodness it's large.

    I hope so too. We had made some plans in our heads for a trip late in the year but I don't think it's going to work out.

  • Crazy is right. Just plain crazy! Thank you, we had so much fun!

  • Minnie Mouse kind of birthday for the 3rd year in a row, bahaha. At least that girl is consistent!

    Yeah I thought so too. I'd try to talk her into letting me sell it but I don't think she'll give it up ;).

  • 🙂 Thank you!!! Her sister asked her how long she was going to like Minnie, she replied "Uh, FOREVER!" Haha ha! I'd believe it!

  • She did :). Yeah I'm laughing to especially as it is lugged around my house… NOT! Hehe he! Actually I don't really mind it that much. Plus it makes her so happy.

  • It truly is an obsession, 3 years and counting now. There are MUCH worse things she could love though, I don't mind Minnie Mouse one bit.

  • oh bummer…well for future reference the best time for DL is the week of Presidents Day (when we went) the lines were pretty short – pretty good weather and all around not too busy. I have been there in the summer before and seriously I think most of the wait times were over an hour, probably closer to 2! this time only certain attractions were over 45 minutes….something to think about

  • Aww! The girl knows what she likes. 🙂 and that Minnie is HUGE!

  • She sure does and her consistency for a young kiddo is very impressive. That Minnie, oh that Minnie is a monster.

  • It looks like she had such a great birthday! I just cannot get over her adorable dimples. So sweet!

  • Such a beautiful smile!!! Love those sweet dimples… I wish I had them 🙂 And I've never seen a kid so into Minnie before!!

  • Oh my gosh, she is TOO cute! Looks like she had the best birthday! I love all the Minnie stuff she got and those shoes are super cute! Super score on that HUGE Minnie for only $37!

  • She did! It was simple and special, the best kind I think.

    Thank you so much!

  • Me to! The dimples are a genetic thing Russ has them, his dad, his dad's mom and I am not sure before that I guess I would need to look back through some pictures :). Marissa's are huge and have been there since birth. In fact that was the first thing I noticed about her seconds after she was born.

    The Minnie obsession is INSANE. I never imagined it lasting this long.

  • Thanks friend. She had a great day!

    I know I told my dad he may have just got the deal of his life ;). Haha!

  • What a steal your parents got on that minnie mouse!!! That's amazing! I just love how much she loves minnie mouse… it's so sweet. You have some great photos and I just love the one of you and her! Happy Birthday a few days late miss Emily!! ps you share Callie's middle name 🙂

  • I know right?! I do too, I can totally seeing her loving Minnie forever and ever at this point.
    Thanks, they didn’t turn out to bad for having to be inside.

    Elizabeth is such a great middle name. It is Emily’s Grandmothers and a great grandmas name too.

  • Thank you! It was a great price. That doll is like having a 3rd child.
    She is one goofy girl her favorite color has been orange for 2 years now. So much for pink and purple.
