Dear Emily

Dear Emily,

While you are away having ALL SORTS OF FUN at Grandma and Papock’s house all this week, my days are spent getting in touch with my inner child and doing silly things like jumping up and down on the bed….

….eating pink waffles with marshmallows and chocolate syrup for breakfast…..

… doing funny photo shoots with Merlin and Samba…..

…playing with Clara…

….and begging Daddy to make some of his famous peach ice cream with these peaches!
When you come home, let’s do all of these things together. Wouldn’t that be fun??


  1. Green Mamma says

    I love the jumping on the bed photo, πŸ™‚ Did you set up a tripod?

    When the time arrives in our lives again, I wonder what we'll do when our little one goes "overnight" to a grandparents' house . . . you've got my wheels a'turnin', πŸ™‚

  2. Mom and Kiddo says

    So much fun! BTW, I love, LOVE that orange wall color!

  10. Andrea (ace1028) says

    Love the pics! How did you get those waffles PINK? Was it simply food coloring? πŸ˜‰

  11. @ Green Mamma — No tripod, just a husband. πŸ™‚

    @ Mom and Kiddo — I have to say I wasn't sure about the orange wall color at first, but after it was done I fell completely in love with it. Every time I go into that room, the color makes me smile!

  12. Night Owl Mama says

  13. EntertainingMom says

    Oooh I wanna jump on a bed… that looks so much fun!

  14. YUM peach ice cream……..

  15. @Andrea (ace1028)
    I just used a few drops of red food coloring. Emily is convinced that they taste like strawberries for some reason.

    @Mom and Kiddo
    We left Emily's room plain white for a few years, until she developed enough of a personality. I picked out the "creamsicle orange" almost on a whim, as I thought it fit her personality. She loved it and wanted to help me paint!
