Emmy's Birthday, part 1

We celebrated Emmy's birthday today with the Groneman side of the Family. We committed to Gramps that we would get some media files on the blog. Unfortunately for Breanna, the first one we've tried was the ~500 MB video of Emmy opening presents. It took a while for the computer to shrink the file enough to get up on YouTube. Working on videos is pretty intense for computers, so we let it do it's thing, and it is below. Breanna, we'll work on getting some pictures up. But it's past our bedtime here.

It was a fun day -- Emmy was in heaven. For Buff's benefit, Emmy was way into her presents and into her cupcake. She would squeal in delight each time she ripped off any wrapping paper - whether it was the whole thing, or just enough to be noticeable. She loved us singing "happy birthday" to her, and she blew out the candles. On the second try, she got both candles with one blow! She and Ty ran around in delight (especially Emmy) all evening long. It was a lot of fun.

I think it was one of the most fun evenings we've had together lately. The fun those kids were having was just heartwarming to watch. Ty and Emmy looking at the tree together and pointing at different things. Emmy blowing out her candles (amazing!), Jacob coming up the stairs during dinner and coming clear around the table and everyone else to get me to restart his show for him. Benjamin being wowed by Brett and Katie's magic. We even got to see Brigham's bright smile near the end as he woke up to go to work. Good food, good fun, good family. It was great. Thanks everyone!
