The Joys of Childhood

Last night our family gathered to celebrate two birthdays. Kim has two kiddos, Miss D and little man, who have birthday's five days apart; it is much easier to do one party. We all, 17 of us, gathered together for a wonderful dinner, presents and dessert. Here is the birthday girl holding her little brother; it is hard to believe that little man is two and Miss D is 6.
Miss D loves cooking so was very excited to get this kit. I know she'll be making cupcakes soon.
Hubby and I found a stuffed Bison recently and knew little man would love it. He is taken with wildlife and can name many; in fact, there is a restaurant in Steamboat Springs that has game heads mounted on the wall and he can name them. He was able to name them before he could name farm animals.
When a little guy has two cousins that are older, he has already learned how to play with Nerf swords etc., so what would be more fun than a nerf sword to play with. No one had to show him how to use it either. Now he can play with his cousins.
Son in law always makes the best birthday cakes, cupcakes and desserts. Due to the different dietary restrictions, he always makes two or three different things. Last night these looked so good.
Little man is one of us that require a special dessert; he wasn't quite sure if he could eat it, but once he was encouraged he loved it.
Miss D's birthday is tomorrow, so I want to wish her a very happy Day.  She is such a sweetheart, she has a heart of gold that is sensitive and quite the sense of humor.  I love watching our grands grow and mature; it brings us such joy.
I hope you have a great weekend.


  1. Hi Noreen,
    Sounds like a lovely family day.
    Your grandies are so cute. They are
    indeed such a joy......and such fun
    watching them grow and learn.

    Those cake pops look great..........
    bet they were a hit with the kids and
    adults alike.

    Hope you are enjoying Fall weather.
    Blessings, Nellie
