Wordful Wednesday – Emma Turns 11!

Wordful Wednesday 411: Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, except WITH words.  It’s for those of us that just cannot be wordless, no matter how much we try.  Add my Wordful Wednesday badge to your post (right side bar under “WW”) if you really want to make me happy, and then add your post link to the linky below. Easy peasy.

Emma turns 11

Bet it feels like all we do around here {in January} is celebrate birthdays.  It seems like that to me too.  🙂


#2 celebrated her 11th birthday last week,  ending the month long dinners, lunches, parties and various celebrations that accompany the day of their birth.


I love this girl to pieces.  I’m in denial that she’s 11, though.

If you have a minute, I’d LOVE it if you’d leave me a comment with age appropriate websites for kids on this post!  I’m making a “white list” of safe sites for my kids to visit online using a new plugin by CocoonKids for KlaasKids.  Here’s where to leave the comment!

  • First, we’d like to send a shout out to the fresh-from-the-womb little dude over at Daily Dribbles!  New baby pictures are always our faves!
  • A thoughtful post about how each of our children has a different experience even growing up in the same house!  Do your younger kids have a better life than your older ones?!  Weigh in at Mom of 6!
  • Give it up for Run DMT for finishing another marathon.  I want to be her when I slim down grow up!

    1. Happy birthday to your girl! I hope she shared her cupcake!

    2. Happy Happy Birthday, Emma!!!!

    3. Well, at least you have something fun to get you through the winter months, although you probably don’t have nearly as much “winter weather” as we do here in Utah!

    4. Ahh Happy Birthday to you!!!
      Great shots Mama. 🙂

    5. The cupcake looks quite yummy. Happy birthday to your daughter.

    6. Oh, she’s such a beauty! I hope she had a great birthday. And that cupcake looks so yum!

    7. Awwww! Happy Birthday to Emma! I didn’t realize she was born the same year as Princess Nagger! Of course PN still has another 10 months before she turns 11, but 2002 was a great year, obviously! 😉 She’s gorgeous – she’s looking more like you every day! 🙂

      My daughter will be 11 in March but I too am in denial. There is no possible way she is that old already!

    14. She is beautiful! Love her red hair. Could not imagine by kids at that age- sad they grow up so fast

    16. Happy Birthday Emma!
