My Tenager

Emily is 10!

So when I meet someone and want to try to estimate their age, I add 20 to the age of their oldest child to figure what I believe is a fair estimate of what their minimum age would be. Now that Emily is 10, I am officially 30.

Emily had a great birthday!

I found this shirt at Target a couple of weeks ago. I couldn't resist getting it for her. I even paid full price for it! Everything else she got from us was a clearance item.

 A Latch Hook rug from my Dad and Sister. I had one of these when I was younger. It's sitting half-finished somewhere. It was of a rainbow. I LOVED it. Emily got one of a rainbow and sun. It's only a 12" X 12" so she should be able to complete it. Mine was rather large.

Daddy got Emily a special present. Can you guess what it is?

I think he spent more time wrapping that trombone than he did driving 30 miles to go get it from some guy who was selling it on Craig's list.

A sewing basket from my Dad and sister. It was a perfect gift for a 10 year old. She LOVED it. It will be perfect for Thread Thursdays.

Emily got some other good stuff like more clothes and shoes, some bracelets from my grandmother (who broke her hip yesterday and had surgery today), and some cards and drawings from her siblings.

I'm not too happy with my cursive E, but the purple dark chocolate M&Ms are pretty. Emily loved that it said, "E10 which sounds like 'eaten'." When Bradley turns 10 it will say B10.
