Emmett’s birthday was a success

I feel like we had a pretty good day. Emmett’s birthday, while not what I would have liked for him, made him happy and that’s what matters. Lizze and her made a carrot cake for him and dropped it off. That was cool way for them to be a part of this important day. We …
