Celebrating Good Times!

In honor of this special day I’d like to give my wonderful friend  a cupcake from Cupcake Couture.   Her favorite one is the, “wedding cake”!  Hope you enjoy each bite.  No calories this time!

This past week we did a lot of celebrating.  My baby turned 21!  (ouch…)

And my first grandSON turned 3.

Now if this is not cuteness over-load I don’t know what is?

After all that wonderful cake and ice cream it was time for some action!   Yep, that little girl you see is my beautiful – feminine  - smock dress - big bow wearing - Kayla, ready for some football with her brother.

He’s back up, and in the game…

 

Oh and what a great day it was, because our beloved New Orleans Saints beat those teddy bears from Chicago!

 

 

Fabulous Friday

Visiting from "This or That". Thank you so much for the morning smile! Your grandSON in that football helmet is priceless. I especially like the photo of his dad strapping the helmet onto his son.

You remembered my favorite cupcake! It's the prettiest one too with the lovely blue icing. I had already decided I'm going to get one this weekend!

Really great pics of your family! I especially love the one of the two birthday boys!

Thanks for linking up!

That has got to be the best looking cupcake I've ever seen. And I don't know if there's anything cuter than a little person wearing a big football helmet!

Margaret said...

Susan, that shot with your grandson on the ground cracked me up. I guess I interpreted it more as him taking a break in the middle of the action while the game went on without him. Any way about it, tho, it looks like it was a wonderful time celebrating people you love!

Lori said...
