Whew! It was a busy week and I am just now catching my breath!
Birthday week has come and gone once again. I will just share a few pictures with you so you don't get TOO bored! Grace had a great breakfast and opened two gifts in the morning..."Beverly Hills Chihuahua" and a Vera Bradley (In *Cupcakes Pink* of course!)wallet...with squeals of delight!
She took decorated sugar cookies to school to share with the class and came home happy and ready to "party"! She had asked that we go, as a family, to her favorite restaurant, "The Chop House". Of course, *family* also means her BFF, the beautiful Miss K!
The Birthday Diva and Miss K
Brady always travels with lots of fun things! Hey Boo! Grace took this picture of Uncle Jim and Grandma...smile pretty for the camera!
What are YOU havin' K? You will notice that I am not showing any pictures of Dan or Bill from dinner. Aha! Good reason! They were late arriving and I had stored the camera by then. Dan drove himself and on the way, well, he was involved in a fender bender. Bill left to make sure all was well so they were not in any of the restaurant shots! No worries...no one injured and the cars are only scraped really. The other driver was so dear and easy to work with that Dan sent her flowers the next day. Yes, my son IS a gentleman! No one was cited and the insurance companies are taking care of everything so...whew! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Then it was back to Rabbit Run for presents, cake and silliness.
What! No presents for the Kipster?
The HSM 3 Game from Miss K! Yoo Hoo!
Just what she wanted!! Mario Kart from Grandma!
More Wii games = A Happy Grace
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
We had an ice cream cake from Cold Stone Creamery and oh my. It was soooo good.
birthday to you!
Make that wish and git 'er done kid!
Aw gee...penning him into the laundry room seems a bit unfair doesn't it?
Bye bye Boo...see you tomorrow!
Miss K says good bye to Grandma...
...as does the birthday girl. Bye Gram and thank you so much! The next morning we are off to Chuckie Cheese for Boo's special day!
lets just, say *I* wanted to go ride too!
You could watch his reactions via the screen at the top...
See Gracie? This is how you do it!
Uh huh Uncle Bill! It is almost as cool as flying in YOUR plane in the Navy huh?
Whew! All that playin' makes a guy thirsty Mommy!
Grace is a Skeeball Queen!
wait...dum de dum...
What's this? A Kentucky Deby riding game!! Well, Boo likes horses so... Okay Daddy...wait for the signal...
See Uncle Bill...see Mommy? This is how it is done!
And in lane 4, the winner of the 2009 Kentucky Derby, Brady Boo riding Star Struck!
Bye bye Gram...I had lots of fun. Thank you for everything...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We also attended a wonderful art exhibit that featured the best of the best works from local children K-8th grade. Grace had 4 pieces of her work on display so I will show you that tomorrow!
Now I am off to shower and change. Bill and I have a big date tonight! Dinner and a concert...Elton John and Billy Joel in Cincinnati! Jim and Lisa gave us the certificate to a fun restaurant in Cincy and the tickets to the concert as a Christmas gift. I am so excited! I have seen Elton twice but have never seen Billy. This should be a great night of music!
Till next time....
Love and Hugs,
