Through the eyes of a child....

Bryden turned three years old this week.  He was soooo excited for his  birthday!  Chelsea had his party at the WMCA where they had a gym class.
The staff on hand was wonderful with children and put them through their paces.
Cooper (L) came from Columbus and everything he tried...Bryden was right behind!
Chelsea with Bryden,  putting on shoes again to go PARTY!!
Whitney leading the birthday song and Bryden blowing out his candles.
Playing "Pin-the-tail-on-the-Donkey"....my kind of game!
Me...always happy with grandchildren on my lap!!!  (just out of the hospital 1 day...overdoing it?  Yes.  I was sick all night.  Worth it??? YES!!)
 Opening presents!
The weather was just perfect...it felt like fall instead of winter.  It was 64* during the day and no wind.  In the evening was our town's Christmas Parade.  We skipped it the last few years but because it was so nice out and Bryden was at an age that we knew would enjoy it, -decided to go.
He was in awe!!!
He loved all the lights, sounds and commotion!
Many floats threw candy or gum at the kids and he thought that was magnificent!
I wish I could always have the enthusiasm of this little boy's age!  I hope for him that he is able to enjoy life with all it's "firsts" as much as the many times to follow.  Happy Birthday wide-eyed little boy....and many, many more!!!!

As soon as I saw your picture I thought "didn't she JUST get out of the hospital....." But I probably would have done the same thing. Glad you didn't miss it.

Dear Donna, you are a sweet grandmother to do what you do and you do it so well. I understand not wanting to miss out on all the activities as I did the same but I only had one breast removed.

Love the pictures of the birthday boy and what a great idea to have the party at the WMCA.

Speedy recovery.
Hugs,
JB

I'm glad that you were able to go. A bit much from just having surgery......you are a devoted grandma for sure. I would have done the same thing.
I had a heart cath the day before my first grandchild was Born. They used the arm method. I was tol to go home and do nothing ll week-end but lay around. the hospital kept calling the following day. When they reached me a couple days later they were not happy that I wasn't home but when I told them why....they said that okay.
I hope you are doing okay. You look great.....I hope you are resting now. (((((HUGS)))))

I think your pics turned out great! Love the idea of the Y having the party...and the mess..and keeping the kiddos busy and hopefully exhausted by the time they went home! Happy Birthday Bryden! You look great and I would have done the same thing. Just try and take it easy now, OK?

Wonderful pictures and a happy (belated) birthday to little Bryden. So glad you didn't miss out Donna, though being sick all night was hard.
Our thoughts and prayers are all around you xx

What's not to love about a birthday party at WMCA :)
They looked like that had a great time.

What a fun party doing gymnastics!Hope you are feeling great! You are an inspiration!Yes I had fun at Beth Dunn's house warming. Ocean City is rather quiet in the winter...but summer is always a busy time...We survived Hurricane Sandy so she should be able to handle anything! Have the most wonderful Christmas with your beautiful family. Jennifer aka Gigi

I am here to tell you that blog commenting is one of the most powerful traffic generation methods around. I believe blog commenting has taken over what traditional article marketing used to be.

Stock Commissions

Julia said...

May your Christmas be filled with love, peace, joy, hope and a lot of good food.
