Emery Turned 8 - Isn't That Great!

Emery has turned eight and got to do lots of fun stuff for her birthday!
In our house, my kids get "friend" parties when they are 5, 8, 12, and 16, so Emery felt like she waited forever to have her friends come for her birthday. She had a horse party and got to invite 7 friends to come (we ordered her birthday party stuff thru Birthday Express online- it was awesome, tons of themes and everything packaged together for one price, love it!).

Then on Saturday she was baptized! She was the only one being baptized that day, so it was really special. She had a beautiful baptism dress and she was very happy that her dad got to baptize her and comfirm her too. The spirit was so strong, we had a really special day.

It was a very memorable weekend for Emery and our whole family!
