Matt, Bjarne, and Dan played golf on Saturday. Molly dropped Emma off with me so she could run errands. Emma and I had a big day. We spent a lot of snuggle time, played on the porch, had nap and bath time, ate play "hamburgers and french fries," played with her puzzles, and watched a lot of "Wiggles."
We watched a Wiggles episode that I had recorded (along with 10 others) that included Jeff doing "Turkey in the Straw." Emma kept talking about the Wiggles and the Turkey. I had a hard time finding it on all of the recorded episodes. Come to find out, she was talking about the "turkey" not because she wanted to see it again... but, because it scared her. When I finally found it again, she broke out crying and buried her head in my shoulder. Lesson learned....
I was tired when she left. This was the first time that she cried when she had to leave...I guess she had as much fun as I did!

Emma wore me out in a couple of hours yesterday. We played with her puzzles, her eggs, crayons, and rocked on the porch. I had a clip in my hair and she wanted one too. Of course, there were Wiggles videos involved too! Emily and Bobby flew to Memphis on Friday morning to meet Robert and his parents at his grandmother's house.

Here are a few before and after examples I did for homework in an online photo editing class I am taking. The before is on the left and the after is on the right. I especially like the selective coloring technique on the black and white conversion -- leaving just the lollipop in color.
