Grana's 81st Birthday Party!

Last Sunday was Grana's 81st birthday! We had a great party for her after church last Sunday evening. We went to Red Robin, and then came back over to our house for presents and cake. Jayden is at that age where he is really into birthday parties, so we had to make it a great party, or he was not going to be satisfied. I think that Grana really enjoyed herself too!

Chris and Jayden at Red Robin waiting for Grana to arrive. The snarl is a new expression that Jayden is really proud of.

He is so excited...he can barely wait for Grana to arrive!

The Red Robin mascot. Jayden loved it, so I thought I'd take a pic of it. :)

Awww...I love my Mommy! (We look tired though!)

This pic cracks me up! This is Grana (on the right) and her sister Aunt B (on the left). They are studying their menus deciding what to order. Can you tell they are related?! :) Look at how their heads are tilted, the open mouth, and how they wear their glasses! :)

Check out this wild bunch! Aunt D (in the middle) looks ecstatic about this shindig!

More of the party animals...(really...we did have a good time!)

Mmmmm...the Bonzai Burger!

Jayden and Mommy...I hate this pic, but I am always taking the pictures, so I had to prove I was there!

The cookie bouquet Jayden and I made.

All of Grana's presents! Jayden was so excited that Grana was at his house for her party!

The super-neat stepping stone that Jayden made Grana!

One of the gifts that I made for Grana-a giant clothespin. I made this because clothespins seem to be my claim to fame in my business!

Another view of my present to Grana...

The back-side of the clothespin.

I also made her this recipe box! I love it! So did she! :)

The inside of the recipe box.

Grana's birthday cake that my mom made. Jayden picked out the candles!

Jayden had to help Grana blow out all the candles...he thought this was such a big deal! :)

Jayden and the Birthday Girl!

Eating his cake...

She loved it!

Chris...I think he usually gets stuck with the job of cutting the cake.

He licked off all the icing and then decided he would eat the actual cake-part! That's a boy after my own heart!
Well...that about does it for Grana's 81st Birthday Party! I hope you all have enjoyed the pics! I know it was nothing big and elaborate, but it was homemade full of love! Sometimes, that's the best type of party!
