nineandsixteen Happy 13th birthday, beautiful Emma!! (This old gal tore her ACL about 10 weeks ago and recovery has been slow. Surgery wasn't really an option given her age. It is so tough to see such a beloved member of the family struggle, but in true Golden form she is still giving everyone plenty of love and in good spirits! My parents are taking the very best care of her!) 2d
  •   soonerstaci Ohhhh sweet Emma girl!!! So glad to hear she is on the mend ;) ♡♡♡ 2d
  •   joieinthejourney Love her! Keeping Emma in my prayers. 2d
  •   cls531 Sweet Emma... Happy Birthday! 2d
  •   janiecam we've gone thru multiple acl tears.... First one knee then, as it happens, the other knee. it takes disciplined as a mama to get your pup thru this...and it's hard on the pup, too...maybe it's a Golden thing these days.... 2d
  •   betsgarrison Our lab went through the torn ACL 4 years ago...she had surgery. So hard to watch. Mend quick Emma Dear 2d

nineandsixteen Party treats that look more like little bears than Rudolf. Kindergarteners have good imaginations so I think they'll love them, and I didn't have to bake for 24 children! ( noses are M&Ms. I attached eyes, nilla wafer and red nose with melted chocolate in a piping bag. Only took a few minutes...) 3d

nineandsixteen Every year the list of people we are grateful for and want to thank at Christmas gets longer and longer... Teachers, tutors, music instructors, coaches, etc... This year I've kept it simple... Godiva Santas and Starbuck's gift cards for all! Ho ho ho!! How do you handle it? 4d

  •   nineandsixteen @cls531 no, I passed it up. It was lovely but just too expensive to treat myself to this time of year. 5d
