(Sorry for the old scanned in pictures from a bad camera!)
She was so sweet, but more often than not, was doing this:
Emily was born 2 weeks early
She weighed 6 lbs 13 oz
She was a VERY cranky little one until she was about 4 months old
Then she was happy!
All the time!
Emily was an easy-going toddler
She was an independent girl who preferred doing things by herself
Emily has always loved clothes and hats
She started playing softball when she was young,
and continued through the 9th grade.
Emily was a talented tap dancer for many years
She was home schooled from the middle of 4th grade until 6th grade
Emily is now almost done with the 11th grade
She started performing in church dramas,
and continues to perform at her high school. She is currently rehearsing to be Auntie Em and Glinda in The Wizard of Oz that opens TONIGHT! Yay! She has also performed in A Christmas Carol, Joseph and the Technicolor Dream Coat and Antigone.
Emily loves her siblings

She takes woodshop at school and makes things like this:

Em knows how to manage a large family and hopes to have her own someday
She is a confident, out-going, fun-loving person who isn't afraid to speak her mind
Emily is comfortable with who she is and people are drawn to being with her because of her fun and light personality
She is a very responsible person who loves to work with kids
We love her bunches! :)
An Emily story:
When Emily was three years old, she was learning how to write her alphabet. One day, she came to me with a paper she had written all her letters on. She handed it to me and said, "How's that, Mommy?" I looked over the paper and said, "That's great Emily, but these are backwards and these other ones aren't quite right." She looked at me, shrugged, and said, "Close enough!" Then she turned and skipped off. Yep! That's my Em! :)
