Duex!!

 Ah, yes.  It happens to the best of us.  Turning another year older....Bryden turned two this week.
 I remember my mother got the biggest joy from celebrating all our birthdays in the best way she knew how and all those memories from special celebrations come flooding back now as the grandchildren celebrate theirs. This one started with a small family party at our house...
 with gifts that he really enjoyed opening with his mother Chelsea.  He is understanding what it's all about which is fun to watch.
 This was one of his favorite gifts...a guitar!  He sings which is SO funny to watch!!
 Friend Emily came over to serenade him too!!
 Today began with a breakfast with Santa.  This was the new word of the week and I laughed each time he said it!
 All the little ones in our family were at Chelsea's house then to celebrate again with a bigger par-tay.






 Miss Emma in her winter outfit...
 Cousins....I love the look on Bryden's face as he shares his chair.  A minute later he pushed her out and wanted it to himself...but I captured this sweet moment first...lol!

 A tender moment between Uncle Tim and Bailey.
 Mmmmm!  The birthday cupcake!!
And Cooper getting ready to go home in his great hat saying good-bye!!


The best part for me was knowing they all will be back in just two weeks for Christmas!!

I love seeing your beautiful grandchildren relate to each other and doing their cute things, Donna. I remember when the majority of mine were their ages.

Your home is truly a blessed place for the grandkids to come to. There's always family celebrations and I think that it's creating some unforgettable memories that will last a life time. You're a special grandmother Donna.

I have a lot of admiration for you. Hugs, JB

Happy Birthday Bryden! Kids just love music don't they? He looks so cute with his guitar. You are blessed. The children are all so beautiful!

Beautiful family!

The birthday party looks like so much fun. What a darling little guy Bryden is. He will love that guitar, I am sure. I also loved seeing the pictures of all the other cute kids.

Aren't grandkids just the best? I used to love being around mine when they were small (that almost implied that I don't enjoy them now that they are adults, but they are just the best to be around any old time) It's just that they are so darling when they are little and they grow up so darned fast. I am now totally enchnted when I am around my greatgrandchildren. We will be going to Sue's for Christmas and I can hardly wait. I'll have four of my grand grands there.
