Emily's new room!

Emily moved into a new room over Christmas break...we painted and bought all new furniture for her. She loves her new room and will play for hours in it. I finally got around to getting it clean enough that I could take pictures to share.



Sledding!

Em went sledding for the 1st time over Christmas break..and LOVED it! Chuck made this little video to show some of the highlights...it is one of my favorite Emily videos...she also loves watching it and will ask for it repeatedly when she sees a computer.

Artwork

I haven't posted an artwork post in a while and decided over Christmas break it was time to start clearing out some of the artwork--so here is a sampling of the art Emily has been creating.







Lots of pictures

Emily had a very busy 2 weeks of Christmas break....here is just a sampling of the pictures from our time home!
She decided one day to "play school" with her animals and dolls.


Naptime

Art time-notice all of the animals have paper and crayons!

This was the Christmas dress Emily's Nai and Gramma made for her and bay doll this year. This is very possibly one of my new favorite Emily pictures.

And of course--opening presents. This is the 1st year Emily has really gotten into present opening. Her big present from us was her new bedroom set (pictures someday soon) and because of snow our travel plans changed, so she only had 4 presents under the tree Christmas morning. This was probably a good thing--because she got 3 opened and declared she was done. We left her 4th present, knowing we'd be doing more later that day any way, and sure enough, later on she was more than happy to open it. From us she got her bedroom set, some games (Cooties and Hi-Ho Cherri-os), a Dora bed tent and some books. Mar and Nick got her an art easel and an elephant pillow pet and Papa and Gramma got her a book and a tractor. From the Hilman side she got some clothes, a bowling set, a Dora power wheels, a portable dvd player and videos, a Dora snuggie and some other stuff I can't remember off the top of my head. Overall she got everything she wanted and then some! We still have Kingma family Christmas to look forward to in Feb.




This is a picture of Em helping Daddy paint her new room....she was very proud of herself and loves her new room!
