Warm greetings sweet friends! The month of February is turning out to be one of the busiest months for me. Just as I recover from the hectic holidays, I get a small breather just before I have to start planning both my childrens birthdays in the month of February. First Grant's… than mine…than Miss Vivian's. All are back to back! Which makes it for a month long celebration and a hurting on my husbands wallet as he likes to tell it! hee! hee!
For Grant's 4th birthday this year we opted to take him for a long weekend to Disney instead of a traditional birthday party. Before we left for our trip his preschool had a little "Celebration of Life" in his honor. All the children gather and sit in a circle. Grant than holds a small globe and walks all around the circle and each circle represents a year of his life.
A candle is than lit for him to blow out.
Afterwards, cookies for everyone!
This is a super sweet photo of Grant and his best friend Conner.
Of course we had cake made for him. His new current love is Hot Wheels so I had a hot rod ice cream cake made for him. So long Thomas the train…we are into HOTRODS!!!
After a little "home" celebration we are OFF to Disney! First day Magic Kingdom!!!
Here we are Me, Chip-n-Dale, my step-son Jordan, and Grant
My little "toon" in front of Toon Town!

The next day we went to Animal Kingdom theme park. My wonderful Step Mom Ellen who lives in Flordia met us at the theme park to spend the day with us. What a special treat!!!!
Im NOT going to bore you with tons of animal photos, but I just had to share these few. My camera takes amazing "zoom in" shots.
Mamma and her baby.
How cute is he???
We had a fantastic time celebrating Grant's birthday weekend at Disney. Next up……my birthday! My birthday was a little less eventful. hee! hee! A nice dinner with my family and friends.
My girlfriends Kim, Nicole, Suzanne (Italian Girl in Georgia),Me, and my sweet Mom Blythe.
Yummy chocolate cake with strawberry's!
As a little treat to myself I purchased this FAB Betsey Johnson necklace. She is truly one of my favorite designers!
I also couldn't resist this sparkly vintage necklace I found in a little antique mall. So elegant and beautiful.
Finally this past weekend we celebrated Miss Vivian's 2nd year birthday. She's all "dolled up" ready to celebrate!
Here she is holding her cake topper I made especially for her.
Mommy and the birthday girl.
Here is the darling cake topper I made.
Little Miss Vivi
This is the cupcake cake we had made. It turned out so pretty!
For Miss Vivian this year we decided to have the Tumblebus come and entertain all the children. The Tumblebus is a fun gymnasium inside the bus where the children bounce, tumble, dance, and play!
Here's the birthday girl getting ready to blow out the candles. Of course guess what happens??? My battery goes dead AND my memory card is full. :(
Im so bummed I have no pictures of her blowing out the candle. Im lucky that one of the other Mom's took tons of photos to share with me. WHEW!
It's been a busy but SUPER FUN month of birthday celebrations!!!! Thanks for stopping by and paying us a visit!
