Our grandddaughter Alyssa and her husband Aaron were in town from Camp Pendleton as Aaron had almost 3 weeks leave from the Marines. With them was the ever-popular almost 2-year old Kylie, our great-granddaughter. Son Craig and his wife Gigi decided that since Kylie's first birthday happened in CA as will her second.
And since none of us can get down there to celebrate with her in October, an "un-birthday" party was held at our son's home nearby. It didn't matter to Kylie that we called it an "un-birthday" affair -- presents, ice cream and cupcakes work any day of the year when you're not yet 2!
Being the proud mom, grandma, and great-grandma, I can't resist sharing pictures with you:
|Kylie, mommy and daddy|
|I love it when you give me bling!|
|I am supposed to smear this on my face, right?|
Bottom line, we had a great weekend! Having family around makes all your aches and pains disappear for awhile. The joy that Kylie has within her for everyone around her is so contagious that we left feeling really, really good!
