Max is eating some cheese and fruit before the cake was served. Not everyone was there yet.
Max and cousin Layla playing with one of his gifts, while mommy watches and daddy picks up papers. Of course Madison is sniffing about. LOL
I got to hold sweet Luke and love on him. I held him at the front door , so he could watch the neighbor mow, as he laughed and squiggled. The weather was that nice here.
This is my daughter Liz's family. Step-son Brandon, Lynzie (mom to Max and Luke) Brandon (dad to Layla) and Emma. These children get along so well . I am proud of them.
Grandma Donna is sitting in the back ground. She is grandmother to all the kids but Emma. Lynzie had balloons everywhere.
The birthday cake was actually cupcakes. With tiny dinosaurs on top sitting in the frosting.
On our way home , we drove by the house in Sharpsville (north of here) .This house had all kinds of Halloween decorations in October, now it has all kinds of Christmas décor from the 50's and 60's.
I would love to know where they store it all. The side yard is full along the driveway. and most of the front yard.
Also got a quick shot of Santa driving this old car and Mrs. Claus in the back.
We got home in time to see the moon come up over the woods down the road. I took this with my phone. I really need to get a zoom lens for my camera. Maybe I should ask for that for Christmas. LOL
I finally did get the house decorating finished...I have not been this late for many years. Hope all of you are done or close. Only 19 days after today.
It is turning cold here. The wind is really fierce. I woke up last night because of the wind. It continues today. The weatherman is forecasting some flurries this week . Stay warm. XO
What a nice day! Glad you got to visit the family and hug the babies! Great shot of the super moon. I like the vintage yard decorations. We used to have a neighborhood near us that went all out decorating. My child who had Down syndrome loved the bright lights and colors.ReplyDelete
Karen, Children do love the colorful decorations. Our mother used to drive us around to look at them. I had a great time on Sunday with the family. Blessings to you, stay warm. xoxo, SusieDelete
Going to get colder here by the weekend..I hope I am ready for Christmas when it comes..Coming too fast..Love the cupcakes..great idea.. Beautiful family..Nice that the kids get along..Cute "old car"...Enjoy the rest of your week..ReplyDelete
Karen, Glad you are all set for the holidays. I feel like I get slower every year. This year the daughters have decided to celebrate early , when all can make it home. :) The cupcakes did not make as big a mess and little was wasted. Missy, I love seeing that old car decorated and the Santa and his Mrs....riding in it. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Hi Susie, Love these pictures. Looks like a wonderful time together. Those are the cutest cupcakes. I like all that Outdoor Christmas decor; just thankful I don't have to put it out! We have heavy rain tonight. I love your moon shot. Have a pleasant evening.xoReplyDelete
Mildred, All that lawn décor lights up and I can only imagine the power bill. LOL. But it certainly is a ,"hey look here" display. I did enjoy the cupcakes, they were less messy and less waste. It was a fun gathering for all of us, in Max's honor. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
I would love to see that house. How fun!! Decor from the 50's and 60's!
Winter arrived overnight here, 3 inches of snow and wind and cold.
Carla, I would actually love to know how many of those pieces the family has , of the 50's and 60's decorations. It lights up the neighborhood. LOL.We are in for some flurries, I think our gentle weather days are number now. I wish it could rain or snow in California, don't you honey? Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
What a lovely birthday party. You have a wonderful family. I so enjoyed seeing all the photo. Some of my family are "blog shy" and I miss not being able to share many of them.ReplyDelete
Love this time of year.
Wanda, I know there are things not to be posted about ...but then some of the family tells all on face book. LOL. I never post actual birth dates or addresses...not that it makes a difference to hackers. I did totally enjoy being with my family. Wishing you the best holiday season. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
That's a great picture of you and Luke! Our weather today was 30 degrees cooler than yesterday and I am loving it!!ReplyDelete
Linda, Thank you Linda, I think Luke and I were happy to see each other. So glad you are cooling down. I saw on the weather this morning where Texas could get snow !! I don't even want snow , yet. I think it's coming and Then I will be counting the days till Spring. LOL. Blessings to you and all there, love you guys, xoxo, SusieDelete
What a wonderful birthday party! Beautiful picutre of you and Luke! My birthday is on Christmas, so I'm counting down the days:)ReplyDelete
Pilar, For you and other who have a Christmas birthday, I sure hope you get extra gifts or some really wonderful ones. The cupcakes , my granddaughter served for Max"s b-day were just the best. It was a truly fun time. Bless you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Love the pictures. How fun! Hugs and blessings, CindyReplyDelete
Thank you Cindy. Hope you are getting things done for the holidays...it seems that so much to do makes the time more precious./ LOL. I finally got my house decorated inside. The wind is keeping me from doing the outside. I may just do the little porch table near the door. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, SusieDelete
Love those fun old Christmas decorations. xo LauraReplyDelete
Hi Susie. It sure looks like fun when your family get together. It is always fun with the little ones. We are getting colder here also but no signs of snow..Happy Wednesday..xxoJudyReplyDelete
Looks like all your family was having a great time. I love Christmas lights especially at night.ReplyDelete
That house is decorated so festive for Christmas. It must be wonderful to see at night with all the colored lights. Many people are serving cupcakes now instead of cake at celebrations. I think it's a great idea - who doesn't love a good cupcake? These look Yummy. This is a cute picture of you and Luke, Susie. It's really cold here too, especially early in the mornings, brrrrr. I hope you show us some of the Christmas décor around the house. : )ReplyDelete
Us Grandmas loves our babies.ReplyDelete
What a fun day and those cup cakes looks really good
