Emma turns THREE!

Romans 10:9 says, "That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Well, that's what Emma did on January 14th three years ago. We call it "asking Jesus into your heart." And in our family that's a big deal. So yesterday we celebrated her born-again birthday. She didn't remember the date, so it was all a big surprise for her. Grandmom and PopPop gave her one of those singing cards and I think that was her favorite thing. She kept going downstairs (b/c I found it to be rather annoying at about the 14th time) to listen to it play "Celebrate good times - Come on!"
Please don't judge the cake too harshly. Children were involved in the decorating and I don't do cakes. I buy them, so this was a very lame attempt. Not to worry - she'll have a decent cake for her eighth birthday coming up. Amy's in charge of that one, so it will be much better!
