Happy Birthday, Autumn and Simon

It has been birthday time here lately...three grandchildren having birthdays in just over 2 weeks! I have been a bit slow getting pictures of Autumn and Simon's Birthdays up because I had to get some pictures from their mom first. I had forgotten my camera for Simon's party. :(

Simon just turned ONE and big sister Autumn turned THREE. (Where does the time go?) We had such fun at their parties, especially watching Simon eat cake.

He enjoyed Autumn's as much as his own!

Autumn loves those puzzles!

Can you believe that hair? No matter what Mom does with it, she will not leave the clips just goes where it wants...and the wind doesn't help! But we love it! She looks just like her mom did at that age...and has that same strong personality too.

Happy Birthday, Quincy!

My granddaughter Quincy had her 13th birthday this week, and since she is a huge Harry Potter fan, we (her mom and I) made her a DRAGON cake. We think it turned out pretty good for a couple of amateurs! We used three cake mixes and 3 1/2 tubs of frosting -- not to mention ooh so much green food coloring. It has chocolate grahams for its spikes, slices of large marshmellows and giant chocolate chips for eyes, snips of marshmellow for claws, raspberry M&Ms for nostrils, and the wings are made from blue fruit roll-ups, held up by skewers. It was very large when we finished but a big hit at her party. At the party one of Quincy's friends was so cute; she said, "Mmmm, I have never eaten a dragon before but it is really quite tasty -- much sweeter than you might think." We all had a laugh over that. What a fun day!
