Miss Emma Marie Brown is 4 years old today!

30 didn't bother me, 35 didn't bother me....but oh my, how Emma turning 4 is bothering me! Seriously, I cried yesterday in Wal Mart while I was buying a booster seat for her for Marshall's car.
How can my baby be 4? How can time have passed so quickly?
I have to tell you, I'm just not ready for her to be 4. Sadly, she IS ready to be 4. She made me a promise that she will stay 4 and not grow up any more than that, but I am pretty sure that is not the last time she will break a promise!
What can I say about Emma? She is BEAUTIFUL--both inside and out. She is kind and loving and so sweet. Yet she is stubborn, and emotional, and bossy!=)
She is just such a special little girl. I love her. I love everything about her. I love her sweet little smile, the great big hugs that she gives, her crazy dancing, her LOUD voice, her fun personality...just EVERYTHING about her!
I so wish each and every one of you lived closer so you could see the amazing person she is becoming.
I know that she is going to need LOTS of strong role models as she grows. I ask that each of you take on that responsibility. Be there for her. Help her become a strong young woman who makes smart decisions. Be there as a sounding board. Listen when she just needs a friend. Love her like I love her.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Emma Doodle!!!!!!!

March, where did you go?

March has flown by at warp speed. The weather has been perfect so we have been outside A LOT. Sadly, my camera hasn't traveled with me as much as it should have. We have been busy taking trips to the zoo, riding bikes, going to the park, and just playing outside with friends.
Here are a few pictures from this month.

Emma has decided that she liked gymnastics better than dance so we are back to tumbling. These are a shots of her doing her thing.
Sadly, we no longer have Spring Training here in Tucson but we were able to take the kids to a game in Phoenix. Our seats were right on the dug-out, which was totally awesome (Tyler's words!). One of the Angel's players threw him a ball so he was a total Happy Camper!=)
We talked to the kids and decided that instead of having the BIG birthday parties this year that we would buy something that they could use for A LONG time. Here it is.....
This is what it will look like when it is put together.
Hopefully I will be able to post pictures of the finished product soon.=)

It snowed in Tucson!

This past week was a week of firsts for the kids! Their first trip to Disneyland, the first time they have ever seen it snow (this happened on the drive through the Mountains on the way home from CA)., and the first time they ever saw snow in our yard!
Check this out--snow in the desert.
