And a Wonderful Birthday it was!


We are back from the wild's of Las Vegas... and what a great time we had at Erin's Birthday. Daughter in laws family and friends are all wonderful and make you feel so at home....Erin's little friends are delightful...they was lots of food, delicious cake, and wonderful company...so many good memories that it made our trip home seem like 10 minutes as opposed to 3 hours..
Well I have to say that there is a lot of difference between 7-9 .. Sweet Erin is growing up so fast ... As a person you makes there living out of faces...I could not help but stare at all the many changes that have taken place in Erin's face...as Richard said.. the little young girl is making way for the little young lady. She is just as sweet as ever...loves everyone and has enough imagination for any 6 people. She is so much like her father...no fear, no holding back when it comes to a challenge and constantly filling her head with knowledge of wildlife and nature. She is so like her mother in her beauty and caring nature, Erin is already very nurturing and respectful of others...we are amazed.
I was not able to get a whole lot of pictures this time...I spent most of my time talking with her and just watching her... she is very shy when the camera is pointing at her...so most of the ones I did get if her..I stole! She is going through a 'Veronica Lake' phase with her hair... over one eye and rather mysterious ...but I do like unique traits in children ...sets them apart...
So I posted some shots that I took of Erin over on my PBASE Account... please take a peek...
We are back working today in full force on Dumbledore as in one week we head up to Northern California to pack and move my sister down here to Havasu. Very hectic here at the moment...
Hope to post the last of the Dumbledore photos by tomorrow...

Thank You so Much Jacqui for your very kind words...they do mean a lot to us.
We love that little girl very much...

She might be an artist...but her love since she was very young has been animals..caring for,and dreaming about! They go up to take care of rescue horses..wash them, brush them walk them...it is her passion...I do believe that if she masters anything in life...it will be a way to actually communicate on a spiritual level with animals...

Happy Easter

Wow Jodi, Erin is a beautiful little girl! Beautiful inside too with a natural spirit for animal concerns.

Time flies so it's wonderful that you guys are only a few hours from your loved ones. Enjoy every minute you have with your beautiful family...

Have A Fabulous Easter Holiday!

Thank You so much for taking the time to write...I greatly appreciate your kind words. Yes we are very lucky to live close...
Boy I just realized with my last two posting here in BlogLand I appear to be a bit of an over bearing pushy Grandma...oops...sorry about that... it's just an important part of our life.

OK...back to doll stuff

Have a Great Easter

oooh yes Edward Cullen!! My step daughter wants to marry him, but NOT the actor that plays him, ( he of Harry Potter Goblet of Fire fame of course!!) but THE Edward Cullen, she says it would be no fun if he wasnt a vampire!!! Tell Erin she is a Twerd like me!! (Thats the name for Twilight Nerds!!!) Kate xx

Jodi said...

Well both the actor and Edward are to wonderful for words...and well cast for this part....Yummy!

It was so cute...all the little girls at Erin's birthday party were writing on the patio out back with washable chalk the words...Twilight...I LOVE Emmett (with hearts) Edward RULES!! Twilight RULES...with hearts!! LOL... Little Girls are sooo cute...but it was all I could do to stop myself from plopping down there with them and write the same thing...LOL
