WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY WEEKEND


We had an absolutely wonderful weekend with our birthday girl in Louisiana! Does it get any better than this? Granddaddy was caught in Emma's room reading to her (or whatever she wanted to do at the moment). I tell you...this is one sweet, little girl. When it is time for a nap or to go to bed at night, you just put her in her bed and she goes to sleep. I never knew that it could be so easy. Mom & Dad deserved her because sister just older STILL doesn't like to go to bed at night.

Emma's party was at the neatest place where there were all kinds of fun things for small children to do. I had a hard time getting a picture of her when she wasn't jumping or climbing, but here she is as she is thinking of what she can do next.

Big sister, Breanna, is here. It's hard to believe she will be eight years old in May. Breanna loves her sisters and takes good care of them.

This precious girl on the right is my middle granddaughter, Maddie (3 yrs.) and her "best friend"! She is something else but look at that smile and you can see why. I was able to go with her to her dance class while I was there. This best friend is in her class and when it was time to leave they both thought that Maddie was going home with her. It caused a complete meltdown for both. It didn't matter if Gigi was in town....best friend's are hard to beat. After a little while she settled for me and we had a fun night.
The party place had a bubble making machine and a couple of times during the two hour party, they turned the machine on and the kids (all 30) danced and had a blast with the bubbles. You can see my son holding Emma as they tried to catch bubbles. The party was great....Emma had a Dora cake because she LOVES Dora. There was ice cream and pizza too. I have MANY pictures but only know how to post five at a time. I will show you at another post the wall hangings on her bedroom wall.
I hope each of you had a wonderful weekend....we sure did.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Looks like you had a great time with your precious grandchildren!

I saw in your profile that you are a church secretary. I was the office secretary/pastor's secretary for 5 years at our former church. Not everyone is cut out for that job!

Blessings,
Mandy

Sounds like y'all had such a blast - I'm so glad (of course I knew you would). You are so right about Grandpas, lol. It is just adorable (and I have to admit, a little strange for me) to see the coach sitting in the floor reading :) Love it!! and love you!
