    Emma is officially *2*! Let the fun begin::wink:

    We had a little birthday party for her. Her cake; although it appears to be a melting mountain :eek: is actually a "Dora the Explorer" cake. :confused:

    I captured this shot for her Daddy who is currently deployed and couldn't be with us for Emmas birthday.

    That's a really unusual capture, I like it a lot. Happy birthday Emma. Enjoy the "terrible twos" which really last until 4, they tell me.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence Terri! Sometimes you get what you can get with the lens that happens to be on the camera:biggrin:

    Thanks Sonya, I am glad the candles shed just enough light to capture it.

    It was imperative for me to get some good shots of Emma's birthday. My son-in-law was very sad to be missing his little princess' 2nd birthday.:frown:
    He is scheduled to come home in another 2 mos.:smile::smile:

    Thanks from Gramma and Emma:smile: As the mother of 3 daughters and 3 grandchildren...I have seen the terrible "twos" come and go through to age 30:biggrin:

    I think another lens would have taken away from this beautiful capture - love the low light and expression on her face. And I bet her father will love it - best wishes to your family, the next two months should go real quick and he'll be home soon :)
