Daughter

We celebrated our oldest daughters birthday this past weekend.
Yes she did, she turned 30! Was I ready for that? Nope. I've no idea where all those years went. We had a family party at our house and I made some cupcakes. Daughter number one's favorite cake flavors are yellow with chocolate frosting and pumpkin with cream cheese frosting. Her favorite color right now is pink so I added as much pink as I could come up with to the table.
We had pizzas and bread sticks from my brother in laws pizza joint including dear daughters favorite bacon and tomato.
My middle daughter is the party planner queen and she put together a crafting session for the grandchildren and of course their auntie. The next picture has all grandchildren minus one grandson and all three of our daughters in it.
We had a few small pumpkins from our garden and middle daughter brought more along with some fun craft supplies and everyone started creating their not very spooky pumpkins.
Are not those some cute pumpkins along with some sweet faces?
Did not want to leave out a picture of our youngest grandchild. He was not into the pumpkin crafting quite yet.
Thanks for coming by for a visit. I hope the rest of your week is delightful. Blessings!

:) I just turned thirty... it was very traumatic. I'm having a hard time actually saying it out loud. :)

I'm drooling over those gorgeous cupcakes, they look divine but the pumpkin crafting really caught my eye - thank you! I have twin girls aged 2 and we need to do something for our Halloween party, I wanted to involve them too and that idea is brilliant. I shall be using it too

When I turned 30 I took my mom on a 10 day cruise to Alaska. You should plant that idea. :)

What a nice mama!! How do our kids get to be so old, so quickly?? When we're hardly aging at all???

Grands are adorable...I'm so looking forward to that day in my life. What a blessing that you get to see them so often. Love the pumpking night!!

Melinda Cornish said...

what a wonderful event! I cant believe I have a 31 year old daughter....Where does time go? We are both very lucky....

EG Wow said...

Isn't October a lovely month in which to celebrate a birthday? My eldest daughter's birthday is today. She's older than yours so I am wondering along with you about where the time goes :)

Anna said...

Dear Brenda,
Thank you for visiting and commenting on my D-post. You ask how these Bull Terriers were. They were very sweet. They look a little shy in the photos, but I put down my camera and gave the girl-dog a cuddle for which she thanked me by giving me a big doggie-kiss.
Please come back to this post when you have time as I have added another dog!
Best wishes,
Anna
