Pictures from Emily's 16th birthday

We celebrated Emily's birthday at Randy and Joy's house on March 16.  Quil and Micah helped decorate Emily's chair and the walls to honor her.  
 Emily loved having her dear friend Joanna to celebrate with her!
 We had mint dirt cake for dessert!
 This was on an evening walk around Johnstown Reservoir.  It was a beautiful sunset.
 The jacket Emily is wearing was one of her birthday gifts.
 She also got a very nice journal and a big box of Hershey's Cookies 'n Cream candy bars.  It should last her quite awhile!
We had plans for another family to join us for Emily's birthday supper, but the plans fell through.  So we played Mexican train and had a fun evening together.
We ate strawberry cupcakes.  They were yummy!
 The girls had a look-alike picture made.  It was special for Emily to match with Joanna and Mother for her birthday.
 On March 21, Emily had her 4th orthodontic appointment.  Now she has to wear two rubber bands.  Her teeth are making excellent progress.
We feel very blessed to have a sweet sixteen year old in our family again.  This is our last one!  How did time fly by so quickly?  Emily is a blessing in our home.  She is helpful, cheerful, fun-loving, a good friend, and desirous of pleasing the Lord most of all.  We love you, Emily!
