We didn't get home until 9:00 pm Saturday night. Emmy was asleep in her carseat, so we let took the collars off of the dogs and just left her in it in our room to sleep. She awoke at 11:00 but after a snack slept through the night in her own bed. Charles and I have never appreciated sleep so much!
Sunday morning went off without a hitch. We made it to church for the second week in a row!! Emmy was a sweet girl in the nursery and was the only baby that wasn't crying when we went to get her after the service. (The week before Miss Tammy had to come get me before church was over!) Here is a picture our sweet neighbor Stephanie took of us after church.
After church we loaded back up and drove to Mama Pat's for a few hours of family, food, and fun. Again, Emmy had a blast being passed around from person to person and got lots of hugs and kisses. Her favorite part of the day was Claire. She LOVES my cousin Eric's almost 4 year old daughter Claire!! Claire would make silly faces and Emmy would smile and giggle no matter her current mood. It was sooo cute! Amazing. It was like Emmy knew that Claire was a little girl like her. Additional good news, Claire is going to have a baby SISTER in July that will be a perfect playmate for Emmy for many years to come.

All in all, after hours in the car from one corner of the state to the other (and then back!) it was a wonderful Easter weekend. Emmy has so many wonderful family members that love her. For that I am grateful!
