Birthday Party Pictures

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

Grandson Duncan celebrated his 6th birthday Friday night with a family party. It was a great time. I fed my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter her ice cream and cake (at her request--she was being lazy and I LOVE to spoil her), so I only had one bite of cake. GOOD ON ME! Three years of Duncan's birthday parties in a row now--and no piece of cake for me!


Lots and lots of presents!


Birthday Cookie


Eating dinner--chicken strips from a local take-out place. It's been a long time since I had breaded chicken of any kind--tried not to eat too many of those strips--they were sure good!


The men in my life, from left to right: Oldest son, hubby, youngest son, middle son


Us girls: me, daughter in law and granddaughter!


Sweet Mia (middle son's foster daughter)


Trying on Duncan's mask


Opening Presents!


I gave each of the little girls a new Barbie doll, so they would have a package to open too!


Playing with that new Barbie Doll. She has lots of hair.


Duncan's uncles help him put together his new Lego truck & boat!


Hubby & I (photography by Amber)


The Lego Boat!


Batman Birthday Cake (ordered by me and paid for my my youngest son--a very generous guy)!

Amber came home with us and spent the night and the next day. Duncan had a birthday party with friends at the Children Museum Saturday, and Amber didn't get to go. She had a great time at our house and SO DID I!


She liked to play peek-a-boo with the pantry doors. Duncan used to do that too!


There she is!


It was a fun game and we played it over and over.


Then...she & gramps read a book,


And discussed life.


Before long, it was time to put on her Hello Kitty hat and get ready to go home.

What a GREAT WEEKEND!

    Wonderful series of pix, hon - thanx for sharing the family album! The last picture of your granddaughter in her 'Hello Kitty' hat? She has the same expression on her face that I bet I had, when they would say 'It's time to say goodbye to Gramma and go home.' I never wanted to - even when I was 55 and she was 95, lol...

I love you got the girls Barbies to open...what a great Gramdma! Oh, and Sweet Mia! What a sweetie...will your son and wife be able to adopt her?
Thanks so much for sharing the special day for Duncan! I have to ask, did he announce he didn't like anything? LOL!
