1st Birthday Party!

A first Birthday Party already....where does the time go? A year ago today our first grandchild was born. It takes three hours to get to Indianapolis from where we live and as we walked into the waiting room the morning he was born his daddy was walking in from the other side to let everyone know that he was born. Great timing. I didn't think you could love anyone as much as you love your own children but this little guy has stolen my heart forever! So today we took the 6 hour drive to be able to spend 5 hours with Brady for his Birthday. We had a wonderful time and the long day was worth every minute. So I wanted to post his Birthday Card I made for him.
It's not the traditional 1st Birthday Card but on the inside it does say Happy 1st Birthday. It is Stampin' Up! card stock, designer paper and embellishments. The stamp is not but it was so cute I couldn't resist. His daddy got him a bat and ball and he smiled really big when he got it opened. His mommy got him a remote control that talks to him and he didn't put that down. Oh no, two guys in one house with remote control! :) He also got some new books and bath toys. His great grandma got him a lawn mower that makes a lot of noise, yeah! He got a really neat piano, he just loves music and hitting the keys, pushing buttons and this does it all from Grandma and Grandpa G. And we got him a ride on fire engine with a bell to ring! He loved the wheels because they moved! He even got a little cake of his own and he was really very neat about it. So we enjoyed our day with the little guy, I'll post pics of him later riding on his fire engine.

  1. This is the cutest boy birthday card! Glad you had fun at the party and I can't wait to see Brady and the Fire Engine pics!

  2. I love the card for Brady. I also like the site you have set up for the stampin up stuff. Wish I could do all of this. Your little "guy" is sure a sweetheart. And yes Kim grandkids are something else. They really steal your heart. Hope you are doing okay and Mike too. Love ya
