Pink Party

 Miss Bug turned four years old on Groundhog Day (what a great birthday!).  February provides an excellent backdrop for a party, doesn't it?  Red.  Pink.  Sparkles.
 When we move the kiddie picnic table into the living room, eating is much smoother.  Kelli and I were sitting in the room, too.
 Missy had a fun evening.  She's dressed in her favorite color.
 Lizzy kicked back with Granny.  We like green footwear.
 Kelli and her family are going to Florida today for Kelli's thirtieth birthday.  She needs a sweet break!  The girls have been sick, the business has been very busy and with kids' activities, school, church, she must go, go, go even if she has a stomach bug or a bad cold.  I hope she thoroughly enjoys herself!  I will miss them!  

I was twenty-four years old when she was born.  It really doesn't seem like that long ago.  When I turned thirty, I was eight months pregnant with Jenny.  Thirty is a great birthday, too!  Don't you think so?
 And Jeff has a puppy.  Lucy.  She's a smart little fuzz ball.  She got a lot of exercise at our house and I took this picture just before Jeff went home to his house.  Lucy goes to bed early.  
It is Super Bowl Sunday.  I'm thankful for a quiet day at home with Bill.  I have grading to do, but the temperature outside will be in the 50's and I bet the breeze will smell delicious.  February is off and running.  

Thank you for coming by and checking on me.

We dont have Groundhog day here, but I looked it up on Google to see all the activities!

What a fun day. I watched my DIL's kids yesterday so she could have a nice ground hog birthday with her hubby. My son will be 20 today Feb 3rd
I was much older than you though, I was 35 when I had him.
I love those green shoes. Enjoy your day, I am looking forward to a quiet day at home too. :)
Enjoy that weather.

Hi Mags! Isn't it interesting that everyone remembers their thirtieth birthday? My mom always says that the thirties are HARD work and the forties are easier and the fifties are GRAND. I agree!

Elizabethd, Groundhog Day is a funny day and children learn about it at school. We all hope that the groundhog indicates an early spring!

Hi Kim! You are a nice mommy and granny! Yes, we'd had our four kids before I turned 31. My parents did the same, so my daddy is 30 years older than me and my mom is thirty years older than my sister. So, I guess my MOM had us all before 31 and we are FIVE. She WAS busy in her thirties!
Thank you for liking my green shoes. I've worn them out now. Sad.

Hi Leslie! Yes, puppies are so wonderful. She is a busy little pup and not quite trained so when we puppy sit, we are reminded that we are too lazy to own a dog! I hear you! I'd like Florida about now, too!

Hi Betty! I'm glad you like my family pics. We did have a wonderful time celebrating Missy's birthday. With nine grandchildren coming in six years' time, we've had a concentrated gift of babies. I'll be sad when there are no more babies to hold, but I absolutely love elementary school kids. Our two oldest grands (six years old) are selling Girl Scout cookies now. Granny and Grampy sure have a lot of cookies.

Enjoy your Sunday, Pom Pom.

I like the green footwear too. And the red and white polka dot heels in your background.

Oooh, we just had a 4-year old Grandaughter party too and pink is her favourite colour. Love the family and doggy pics.I remember when I was about to be 30, I remember feeling scared to be leaving my 20's! I feel the same now about leaving my 50's next year!Phew...
Have a good week. x

Pom Pom said...

Hi Sara! Yes, aren't the red and white polka dot heels cute? We'd never actually wear them, but they are cheerful!

Hi Libby Q! It's so nice to hear from you! I hope you are staying warm and cozy AND enjoying all your creative endeavors! (BIG HUG!)

Hi A! Aw! We SO wish you would have been at Clara's little celebration. We did it at Granny's since Kelli was leaving so early the next day. I LOVE you BIG!

Hi Nana! Yes, those milestone birthdays are thought provoking. I am sure the next decade will be awesome for you because YOU are awesome!

Hi Ann! Yeah, I never did get to the grading. I'll have to do it at school I guess! Yes, family birthdays are always fun!

Hi Kit! I can't wait to hear about your Disneyland trip!

Melanie! Long time no see! I'm going to pop over to your blog to see if you've posted! You are so fun!

What a sweet post. I love the photo of you and Lizzy in the green footwear...too precious! The cupcakes look delicious! It looks like it was a wonderful birthday party. I'm so glad you were all able to get together for it. I hope Kelli and her family enjoy their trip to Florida. Lucy looks like a sweet puppy. I hope you enjoy a lovely week! :)

What a lovely party! All parties should be pink. Or maybe not, but it was fun to think it for a second. Love the babies, love the puppy! I'm so easy to please ...


Catherine said...

Thank goodness you're never too old for pink! is a perfect colour for party treats! Pretty cupcakes & sweet children. Lucy is a little darling. By the way the boys have been waved off today. They should be winging there way home right now. Won't be long & they'll be on your door step. Thanks for sending them!! Love GK x0x0x

Lisa Richards said...

Happy birthday to Miss Bug! Glad I got to see the fun pink and red party and all the family togetherness at your home. I've been outside in the frosty weather helping hubby roll three 1200 pound bales off of our hay trailer so the horses will be occupied for a while! Going to have a cup of tea and get to some school reading. Have a great day!
