Ben and Emmy's Special Day

On Ben and Emmy's actual birthday in October, we were visiting Albuquerque, New Mexico.  It was Stake Temple Day for our Stake and the temple we are assigned to is the temple in Albuquerque.

I made sure to make the kids pancakes for their birthday before we left for Albuquerque and have birthday balloons and streamers to run through!  Also, you can't tell, but they are wearing their birthday shirts I made them. Sadly, I don't have a picture since I think we lost those shirts in Albuquerque. 

 We obtained a hotel for Friday night, Brandon got up and did the earliest session at the temple and then I went after him. While I was doing my session, the kids had a wonderful time swimming in the pool!   One of my kids favorite things to do is to swim.
 We went back up to the hotel room for the kids to open their presents and have cake and ice cream.

The kids loved their Bronco shirts from Sean and Tracy.
Ben was given some sports trading cards from Hyrum. He has loved them ever since and breaks them out while watching every game on TV to see if he has any of the players. 

Hyrum also gave Emmy a loom band set.

Lucy gave the kids some books.
Emmy was very excited for her nail kit! Also, her pumpkin decorating kit that she used to win the prize of most creative pumpkin at our ward Halloween party. 

Emmy's big present was a remote control car to drive around her LaLa Loopsy doll in.

Ben was given some beyblades and a timer to keep track of how fast he rips them!

Also, after our birthday celebration, Emmy went and picked out a new winter coat.  Ben was able to pick out a new bike (Emmy got a new bike just a month before).

I think Lucy was a little confused that the party wasn't about her that day.

We sang Happy Birthday to the kids and had some cake and ice cream.

It was a great way to start out our fun birthday celebration!
