Birthday Bash!

Today was my grandson Coles' fifth birthday. His party was yesterday! It was a pirate theme.

Look at the awesome cake, doesn't it look like a real treasure chest. One of my daughters friends made the

cake.

Cole, the birthday boy, and his sister Riley!
Cole said, "this is the best birthday party ever"!!!

Doesn't this look like a real treasure chest, look at the jewels, they are edible.

Hubby and my other grandson, Jake!! He is having fun too!!
What awesome memories!!! Grandchildren are so much fun!!! I should have had them first!!!

  7. Lecia,
    That cake is awesome which you can tell by Cole's face. Grandkids are fun, it is different with grandkids than our own. Grandkids are what keeps us young at heart as we grow older.
    Glad everyone had a great time.

  13. What an awesome birthday cake!!! Looks like the kiddos had a great party. We had a busy two days with our grandsons and the little girl next door. They were "stuck like glue" the entire time! My boys had their first Tea Party and it was a hoot. Love being the grandma!!! It's Monday and I'm pooped and have to put the house back together. Wouldn't trade it for the world.
    Have a great week my friend.
    Hugz,

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
