Leah is 1!!!!!!

Her party was held at the local park Saturday.

I was thrilled to see that Leah's great grandparents were able to be there. They live in Michigan and made a special effort to be here for the happy occasion.

I had only met them once before and was so happy to see them again. Joe is still very close with them (they are his x-wife's parents). It is so nice to see that some folks can stay true to themselves and who they care about no matter what might have happened to a marriage. To me, that shows character like nothing else.

Steph hates to have her picture taken. Isn't she silly?

My precious and her cousin McKenzie. I tried stealing kenzie's ever so precious Disney hat several times. She giggled every time.

See that picture? That is my goal. To be able to hug MY great grandchildren. I can't even imagine how thrilling that must be!

Beth had told us that Leah really loved this little pink rocking horse and could even get on it herself. Papa Joe promptly scored one at Toys R' Us. After all, he is married to Trailboss and this horse lover wants to make all of my grandkids horse lovers too!

I think she liked it.

What a fun day. All of the kids were good, no getting in trouble at all! The other kids had cupcakes (us adults too!). They were really tasty. Much better than storebought or the ones that come with a party. Much cheaper too!

Oh yes my friends.........a good time was had by all.

Great pictures for a great time.

Leah is a great name as our son and daughter-in-law just named their second daughter Leah Marie.

One? Really?? Where has this year gone? Cute, cute, cute! Nothing like that first birthday cake. She's adorable, especially with cake all over her face.
