Emery’s actual birthday was a small get together keeping with her Frozen theme.
Before Emery had arrived Victor and I decided we would get her ears pierced on her 5th birthday if she wanted, but not before. We wanted to make it a right of passage for her into becoming a big girl and having her ears done right before school started. Also we didn’t want her earrings hurting her head when she laid down or her messing around with them and getting her ears agitated as a baby.
Before her big day we asked if getting her ears done was something she would want to do and it was. Her aunt who was a few years older had hers done and her best friend Lauryn had earrings. The afternoon of her birthday we took her to get her ears pierced and while I kept telling her it will hurt it was obvious she didn’t understand.

She cried and screamed but after a few short minutes they pain subsided and we were walking out of the mall with a new stuffed animal and some frozen yogurt.
Those new earrings 🙂
The day was hers and she knew it, we did all things Emery wanted: earrings, yogurt, Figaros for lunch, pizza for dinner with rainbow cupcakes with chocolate frosting.
Carlos was pretty excited about the cupcakes ( A wax candle letter was missing, so she got Happy Birth instead, good thing this is her last year of not knowing how to read)
After asking me EVERYDAY your day is finally here. Happy birthday my little Angel. “Momma and Dadda” are so proud of you for being such a smart sweet little girl and we love you SO MUCH. We can’t believe our little Poochie is already 5 and about to start school! Always continue to learn and listen to your heart & brain. Here’s to many many more memorable birthdays!! Love always, Mom and Dad xoxo
Ending your first day of being 5 on a sweet note
Thank you to all who showed up to make our little one and her little party a little extra special.
Great Grandma and Great Papa handed down cousin Yvette’s favorite movie, Charlotte’s Web to Emery.
Every birthday I always want a picture of me and the kids but for some reason it never happens. Again, this is the best I could get but at least I got one this time! We love our little Princess.
HIGHLIGHTS OF EMERY BEING 4!!
Early in the year she came up with the idea of having a, “No rules, anything goes” birthday. However she failed to mention this was her new motto for life after she turned 5. Apparently I agreed that rules don’t apply to her anymore.
Emery is well on to becoming a Starbucks gold card member with her ordering skills: “Can I have a chocolate milk with whip cream on the top and chocolate on the bottom” even spelling your name out for the lady so she gets it right.
In your ripe age you have discovered the finer things in life. No longer are you addicted to the simple Kraft Mac N Cheese, you now only exclusively eat Panera’s Macaroni and cheese. Grandma Yvette made the mistake of asking Emery if she wanted macaroni and cheese and Em was excited until she saw the food in front of her and didn’t eat it, “It’s not Panera’s” in her valley girl voice she some times does (& is a running joke with grandma Yvette and I)
Basically I’m saying I created a monster
Em got her first comic book with Dad, My Little Pony
first time in a comic store
In deep picture thought
When no truer words have ever be spoken:
Dad taught her the diarrhea song it was funny and luckily she ended up forgetting all about it in a few months haha
It didn’t last very long
This still makes me laugh:
You started Gymnastics! Level: Spinner
Your last day in class as a 4 year old!
Disneyland birthday gets a thumbs up
You love your great grandparents and cuddling with them:
In her words, “I just want to be popular” & I am sure you will be because you are funny and sweet. Stay that way, no one likes a mean girl with a bad attitude.
Your vocabulary has grown so much! You impress us everyday
You are a ranch maniac
No shame in your game
