On July 24th, we celebrated the 18th birthday of Emily Grace!  What a joy and precious blessing she is in our lives and we thank God that He has allowed her to be a part of our family!!!  Here are some pics of her special day:)

Surprises:)

She had many special surprises, but part of her gifts were western themed, since Emily is a huge western fan!  Mama and Daddy got her cowgirl boots and Sarah and I made a set of jewelry for her that is western.  We made a concho necklace, earrings, bracelet and boot bracelets as well!  We had so much fun creating these for her!   Sarah designed and made a Roy Rogers purse with leather and conchos!!! It was amazing!  Here are some pics of the jewelry and purse……oh! and her new boots too!:)
