Six




"Anticipate the day as if it was your birthday and you are turning six again."  ~Mike Dolan


Turning six was done with lots of fun on Sunday when family all got together to celebrate our granddaughter's birthday.  The birthday card we gave her was also a panda mask. And our gift was a digital camera,  she LOVED the camera. Everyone tried out her Hula Hoop gift, but I was just not quick enough to catch Phil at it. Here you see her other grandmother mastering the dangerous neck maneuver. When I was a kid,  I was Hula Hoop Queen, and my mom would yell at me. "Don't swing that thing around your neck; you'll break your neck!!!" No one yelled at anyone at this party for doing hoop tricks. But I could still hear my mom's voice in my head, and wanted to warn Anne that she might break her neck, it is hard to ignore a mom's warnings even after so many years. But I am no party poop!


“Good friend, follow your father's good advice; don't wander off from your mother's teachings. Wrap yourself in them from head to foot; wear them like a scarf around your neck. Wherever you walk, they'll guide you; whenever you rest, they'll guard you; when you wake up, they'll tell you what's next.”
Proverbs 6

It looks like Ann Marie had a wonderful birthday! She looks so happy and pretty in that beautiful dress. A camera for her sixth birthday...how cool! I can't wait to see some of her pics! Her cake is so cute! And I just love her Panda Bear mask. I've collected Panda Bears since I was a teen. My birthday is Thursday, April 5th. I guess Ann Marie and I have a couple of things in common. :) When I was her age I loved to hoola hoop, I'm sure she'll have a blast with it!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Sweet....she is such a darling!!!! I love her hair cut too by the way...such a charming, perfect 'do' for Ann Marie if you want my opinion.

And the hula hoop....I can still work 'em. I have one. For exercising. Oh,.......and PURPLE icing on the cake. That's a perfect color.

You know what touched me the most in this post. That you remembered your mothers warning even after so many years. And what a fabulous party you had, the digi cam is a great gift for lil Anne.

Happy Birthday to your sweet Ann Marie! Glad you had wonderful family time with cake and gifts and great fellowship. Have a special week and enjoy a Blessed Easter!

Darlene said...

Looks like a great party. Our granddaughters were born only about a week apart. I never could master the hoola hoop!

Glenda said...

Love this post, Ginny! Aren't you glad Anne Marie is interested in photography? I know I was when our Abby began taking pics and enjoying it. The hoola hoop brought back lots of memories . . . such as hoola hooping until we were sore the next day! Those were the days!

Filip Demuinck said...

That's going to be a lot of fun with this gift. Congratulations.

Greetings,
Filip

Stephanie V said...

What a gorgeous cake! I don't think my sixth birthday was celebrated nearly so well. She's a doll and clearly likes to have fun! So does Grandma Ginny I think!

From the Kitchen said...

What an adorable birthday girl. I'm sure you all had a great time celebrating her!

To answer your questions: The Baker bought a black Volvo. I'm really happy for him since it was his turn for a new car. I drive a wine red CRV thus the name "Cerise". We both keep cars for a very long time. Hmm, my next one is due in 2014!! I'm thinking a light gray Rolls Royce!! I'll take you for a ride.

Best,
Bonnie

Bobbi said...

Hi Ginny. What an awesome birthday cake! It looks like a lot of fun was had at this party. Anne Marie looks so happy. Her smile is so precious. I used to love to hula hoop. I still try now and again with one I have in the garage. Up until I put on my last 10 lb. about 2 yrs. ago, I was still able to keep it going.. hha. So how did Phil do?

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Oh wow,looks like a lot of fun. Now you will have a photography buddy just like me.Those granddaughters are priceless.

Neal said...

Happy Birthday Anne Marie! Her cake is so cute! I love purple. I was never very good with the hoola hoop, but I could do a mean pogo stick.
