VERY Special Celebration

IMG 3809

A very special young lady in our lives, granddaughter Elizabeth ("Ellie") celebrated a BIG milestone this weekend — her 1st birthday.

Ellie was surrounded by family and friends to help her celebrate this event, the first of many more to follow.

Ellie's disposition is as bright and cheerful as her colorful birthday dress. She's a happy child, who's always laughing and chattering, unless tired or hungry (much like many of us).

The party had everything expected at such events from good food to presents, cake, and many good wishes. The special birthday cake was decorated by Ellie's mom, Shannon. There was also a crown for the birthday princess.

Wondering IF the birthday cake was good — just ask Ellie who found the best way to eat it is with two hands.

What's a party without presents? Mom and big brother Bobby, also known as grandson #1, were there to help out.

What a darling little one! I love her little bunches on the top of her head. Of course, Grandma, the best way to eat cake is with both hands at the same time......don't you remember?
Have a wonderful trip
