but at least this time she has a friend!
Sadly, this time, it's both feet that underwent surgery :-(
But at least this time she doesn't have a cast!
Unfortunately, this time, she still had to have pins in her toes :-(
~Em will be in TWO walking boots and on crutches for the next TWO weeks, but her surgery today went well! Thanks for prayers!!~

And as much as I try to avoid starting solid foods....
I can no longer deny that it's time!
And just like any breastfed baby that doesn't take a bottle or a pacifier, Caleb insists on having his finger in his mouth with each bite ;-)
Otherwise, he's doing pretty well! We've tried pears, bananas, and oatmeal so far, with only a few looks like this....
But after only one week, he's already starting to put it away at meal time! Must be a boy ;-)

|My mom sent this to me in an email, and though I'm not sure of the source, it spoke to me so very much that I knew I had to post it on my blog!

Her dad was so excited to take charge of decorating her car for the big day!
(Note the headlights!)
We had a surprise waiting for her in her car before school....
She loves Hello Kitty, so we filled a lunch box with her favorite candy!
We even went so far as to go with some Hello Kitty wrapping paper.....
Oh, and balloons too ;-)
Allie enjoyed all the birthday wishes she received on Facebook!
And for some strange reason, her birthday list included a mexican poncho/hoodie thingy!
And this thing..... do you know what this is?
No, Allie's not moving to Iran, she's just messing around with her new circle scarf!
Her birthday cake request was a special one....
Red Velvet Cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory ;-)
After her very quick family party, she headed off for opening night of her school's production The Odd Couple ~ female version!
I snuck a shot of the set when we went- there's no photography or video allowed during the show of course! Sadly, the kids can't wear their costumes out after the show, so the pictures don't tell much.....
But the costumes for this particular show were just their own clothing (although NOT the sweatshirt that Allie had on after), so there wasn't much to photograph outside of the cast meeting up with their friends and family.
Smile Allie, it's your birthday ;-)
All in all, I think she had a great day, even though she was wrestling with a migraine and cramps! The show went well and she played her role perfectly! We were so proud and so impressed with how well she acted as this was her first major role with real lines that consisted of more than one word!!

We had a Halloween Party at our house and Emily set up her "famous" haunted house! Here's one of the hallways....
And here's another...

Caleb played while we set up for the party!
For Halloween, Noah went as.....
