    It’s hard to believe that it’s been 16 years since this cutie was born. I was a little nervous about having Emily’s party in our backyard because we live in California and it just might rain in January.  The most important thing was that she had a great time with her friends, so we moved … Continue reading The Sweetest Sweet Sixteen
