Triple Birthday Party!

On Saturday, we went to a triple birthday party! It is the second birthday of our grandbaby Jaslyn, and the birthday of her mom. Also another family member's birthday! So come with me!! Here is the sun catcher hanging on the sun room door. Let's go in.

Inside the sun room, there are many beautiful plants, including this large amaryllis. My son and husband are huddled there deep in conversation. And I got a close up shot of my boy!



                                  Here is our granddaughter Anne Marie and her mommy.

     Time to eat! So let's move into the dining room. And the beautiful chandelier over the table.

                       After homemade pot pie, there was German chocolate cake for the grownups.

And the cupcake corner for the kids.

Speaking of kids, there were lots! Many more than the little ones on the couch. They were playing The Quiet Game.

 Time to open presents!!

This is one of the presents we gave her. How many of you remember this, or had one? Jazlyn was promptly chased down the hall by the other kids wanting to grab it. The two words that she has mastered are "NO! MINE!"


As we were leaving, we looked back to see the tiny birthday girl sitting happily in a chair surrounded by her gifts. It was a good day. Thank you for coming! 
 P.S. I know you remember that I cannot post any pictures of her sweet little face on line until the adoption is complete, phooey!


“Let me tell you what God said next.
He said, “You’re my son, and today is your birthday.
What do you want? Name it:
Nations as a present? Continents as a prize?
You can command them all to dance for you,
Or throw them out with tomorrow’s trash.”

Psalm 2

You have a handsome son and hubs. Happy birthday to everyone. I am so happy you have a second granddaughter - she is beautiful. I have two boys and would love a girl!

What fun! I get to celebrate my grandson's birthday with mine because he was born the next day after mine which actually makes mine more special. Ours is in March.

Nice to have different cakes too!

Thanks, always love a party. The baby's are so cute and sweet.

Ans to your question why did we move---We retired and getting old. Moved to retirement village, but after 3 years had enough bought a new smaller home where we live now.

What a delightful party and how fun to celebrate 3 birthdays on the same day! Love this two year old age, so special!

Locwly photos Ginny, and three birthdays? That's a great idea, three times the fun. This brings back memories of my own son's birthdays when he was this age. Sweet memories! Made me smile when Jazlyn said, "No mine!" They learn early :)
