Our 'little girl' Emily turned 15 yesterday so she is one year closer to growing into her 6'0" frame!
She had a lot of fun going to Ikea to pick out a new bedroom suite with mom. Later, we went down to the bay and surprised her by taking her to see her favorite local musican, Deanna Dove. Deanna was very kind, singing Emily happy birthday, buying her a piece of Key Lime pie with a candle in it and inviting her to sing along on her favorite DD tune, a version of Leon Russell's "Back to the Island." It was a fun night, as several of the other local artists joined Deanna on stage to do Christmas songs in addition to their tunes. Today, poor Jason has the job of building all of Emily's new furniture... happy birthday, Emily! bp
