Whenever you come to our house we try to go for a walk around the block before playing all sorts of indoor games. Sometimes we play camping and we have sleeping bags and make a tent using the chairs. Other times we play dress up games. You like to put on a sparkly top and a long scarf, an Egyptian green box hat with a chiffon scarf. I follow you around as your sister or servant!
When you came a couple of weeks ago you wanted to paint my face so we did face-painting before going for our walk.
September 16 was the Sunflower bandana day. You looked gorgeous in your purple bandana which you were allowed to wear to school. The Sunflower Fund raises money and awareness for a bone marrow registry for people suffering from illness like leukemia (a type of blood cancer) so you did your part to help the fund.
Mark left on Monday to fly home but you, Tammy and Gail flew back two days later. Gumpy and I fetched you from the airport and took you home. It was my turn to meet you with a 'Welcome Home Emily' poster with hearts and rainbows! I also bought you and Gail a balloon - a pretty girl balloon for you and a Happy Birthday balloon for Gail.
It is your 8th birthday next month and this year your favourite is My Little Pony. I'm looking forward to your birthday next month!
