While the boys were out fishin Emerson and I had some GIRLY time!!
We whipped up some face makeup by mixing baby shampoo and dab gel food coloring.
Her dolls got the FULL treatment!
I’m so thankful I have a little lady in my life!! Her enthusiasm for girly things is so much fun.
I’m not sure if her dollies appreciated their make-overs, but Emerson sure enjoyed every single second.
Look what the kids and I have been packaging up for all the 52 Smiles folks.
We wanted to send a special THANK YOU gift to all who have been working at spreading kindness!!

My motto is that if we have an extra 20 minutes, we have time for a PARTY!!
