Emma is now 9 years old. Instead of cramming everything she wanted to do into one day, which wouldn't have been possible anyway, we ended up having a birthday week. Here are some of her highlights.
* We gave her a Nintendo DS, which she really wanted, and a couple of games to start her off.
* Other relatives gave her money, which she has only just finished spending. She bought a few more DS games, a new beanie kid bear, a book and a paint your own mug kit, so it stretched a long way.
* We dropped the boys off with my parents and took Emma and her friend Hannah to a waterslide complex in the city.
* We took Emma, Logan and Blake to Fasta Pasta for dinner to celebrate her birthday.
Those 9 years have passed very fast.
