Katie is One!

Let there be cake! A special birthday cake, that Katie gets to smash, smear, eat and play with all she wants on her special day! And there was, and she did, all over herself and anyone and anything within reach of her high chair!  I think the grown-ups had as much fun watching this mash-up, as Katie had doing the mashing!
First Birthday Smash Cakes seem to be the thing to do today. Who knew? 
Happy Birthday, Katie...hugs and more hugs, Bubbie
P.S. What special ideas can you share with us for kid's birthday parties?

Fireworks on the Fourth of July

After a delicious day of barbecuing with friends and family, there's nothing like bringing the July 4th holiday to a close with some high soaring, breath taking fireworks! (Especially when you get to watch them from a distance, without the ear piercing sound effects!) We took a short walk to the corner of the block, looked up to the sky, and there it was in all it's glory! Jude was full of oohs and aahs as he watched the sky light up with sparkling bursts of color every where. Elliot, of course had the best seat in the house...mommy's arms!
Hope you all had a wonderful 4th!
Bubbie and the Grandbabies
We'd love to hear about your 4th of July holidays with your grandchildren!
