~Soon to be Mr & Mrs McCutchen~

One of my dearest, dearest friends is getting MARRIED!  I am so beyond honored to get to be a part of this special day, which will fall on miss Emerson's 1st birthay!  It's been fun choosing bridesmaid dresses, shoes, etc with her, and I can't wait to see her celebrate her special day!  We went out to dinner with Troy and Linds to go over details, because Josh is actually going to officiate the wedding!  So exciting!

~SEVEN months!~

Can you believe it??? Miss Em is SEVEN months old!  I can't remember life without her already... she's such an incredible baby girl!

~Seattle with Friends~

When I became pregnant with Emerson, a friend of mine signed me into a group of women who were due around the same time as I was.  Well, over a year later, I still talk to about 15 of them, one of which came to town for a job fair with her BEAUTIFUL baby girl!  Becky is an incredible woman, but intellectually and spiritually.  I LOVED my time with her, and hate that she accepted a job FAR away from Washington... guess it means I will be hopping on a plane to see her again!

~Ferry ride to Herron~

In taking pictures of homes for Josh, Eme and I have been on several fun little adventures!  This one was quite entertaining... we took a ferry to a small island off of Lakebay, and the ferry only held ELEVEN cars!  We also received an escort to the home and back off the island by one of the locals.  But in waiting for the ferry, we had fun finding clams and checking out the water!

~Valentine's Day~

Every year for Valentine's Day Josh and I stay home, make a big home made dinner together and watch a movie. This year was no different. We lit candles, had fresh salmon and garlic mashed potatoes (I had NOTHING to do with dinner this year, and it was fantastic!!) and after dinner Josh Eme and I snuggled onto our bed and watched the movie Valentine's Day. For those of you who haven't seen it, you should, it's really cute! It felt so good to be with the 2 I love the most, laughing and playing and making memories. Eme even dressed up for her daddy! :-)

~A Very Merry Un-Birthday~

I had always found it cool how people celebrated 1/2 birthdays. Nothing too major, but family and cake. So, we started it right off the block with Emerson. She put on her party skirt (one that promptly got washed and packed away for her cousin Kennedy) and I made her a triple layer cake. I had fun with white cake mix and food coloring. :-) She thought it was pretty fancy that she was just able to dive into the cake, and eat all the frosting she could manage!
