Let the annual Hot Wheels race begin!
And it lasted for hours.... all to see who had the fastest car. Heats of cars raced to elimination on a 4 lane track, until only one car was left. Since we each paid a $1/car entrance fee, and some people raced up to 5 cars, the ultimate winner went home with $140 dollars, second place took home $40.
These guys mean business!
And the cousins enjoyed more time together.
Plus, great elf hats from Auntie Sheila.
We celebrated Emma's birthday with a fancy Crazy Cakes cake from GG.
Emma is so good at blowing out candles, I never got a photo of it, even though we relit this candle 3 times....
See? The lighter is still in the photo!
She got a few more presents and celebrated with all kinds of extended family.
