Happy Birthday, Brooke!

I can hardly believe that our oldest granddaughter is 7 years old.


When did that happen???

{Okay...meltdown over.}

Here are a few photos of our beautiful Brookie Bear from the past year.
Showing off her first lost tooth only Brooke can!

Searching for Easter Eggs

Her first day of  First Grade.
Rockin' those new glasses.

Happy 7th Birthday, Sweetheart!

Pappaw and I are so proud of the beautiful young girl that you are becoming -- inside and out!

We love you to the moon and back!

Nonna's Brag Book

There was just too much cuteness at Delayne's party for me not to share pictures of all seven grands.

Weston just turned 1!
 He was so busy that it was hard to get a clear photograph of him.

The kiddos waiting their turn for the obstacle course.
This was the only good photo I was able to get of Brooke (far left), Maddux and Davin (third and fouth from left).
They were running all over the gym, and Nonna was just getting over a nasty virus.
I couldn't keep up!

Miss Frosting Face

Everett (AKA Dayton)
Such a happy baby!

And Sweet Elliot
I wish I could have captured her 'Woo Pig, Soiee' on video.
Absolutely Precious!
Love these munchkins to the moon and back!

On Books and Birthdays

"Birthdays in Lucy's world were always celebrated, never forgotten.  There must be cake and candles, cards and presents.  Time must be marked.  Order preserved.  Traditions upheld."

From The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith  AKA JK Rowling

I'm currently listening to this book on CD during my daily commute and just fell in LOVE with this quote. Why?  Because you can replace my name with Lucy's any day.  I love birthdays.  I love holidays.  I love traditions.  And, yes, there must be cake and candles, cards and presents.  (Though at my house, the candles are often forgotten until the last minute.)

And I was reminded that I never posted pictures from the latest Bubble Guppy birthday party.  So, here goes:
The Birthday Girl:
Delayne is 2 years old!

Meagan does an amazing job of decorating

The only way to eat cake!
Her favorite gift of the day.
 Once Granny and Pappaw Duane gave her this one, everyone else disappeared!
Time was marked.  Order was preserved.  And traditions were upheld!
