Happy 13th Birthday – A New Milestone
I am dedicating this post to my First Granddaughter who turns 13 today, hence a new milestone for her becoming an official TEENAGER!
It is a special day for me as well since to honor her birth 13 years ago, and making me a grandmother for the first time, I decided to take my son’s advice and start my own blog: Suburbangrandma.com Thank you ALL for being such good sports following my blog and leaving such heartwarming comments…:-)
Maintaining this blog requires a lot of time and effort, but then again it provides such fond memories for all of us as I have been able to capture many special moments in our life such as weddings, birthday parties, cooking and baking projects, gardening, crafts, traditions, and many other special subjects.
Today I will provide links to all the birthday parties for this granddaughter from her First Birthday to her 13th Birthday.
My daughter, as well as my daughters-in-law (I do have a total of 7 grandchildren), put a lot of time and effort into a birthday party planning for their young children, with numerous innovative decorations, fun games, and delicious food.
Unfortunately, I only have posts through her 8th birthday, since as she was getting older she began to celebrate with her friends in a more mature way without the fuss of numerous decorations, and of course, grandma did not want to intrude with snapping pictures all over the place…:-)
First Birthday – Sesame Street Theme, and the ever so infamous ELMO every little one love at that age.
Second Birthday – Minnie Mouse party theme.
Third Birthday – Candyland party theme.
Fourth Birthday – Dora The Explorer party theme.
Fifth Birthday – Princess Belle party theme.
Sixth Birthday – Ice Cream Sundae party theme.
Seventh Birthday – This was a very special year since her paternal grandfather treated her and other family members to a trip to Paris, France, which was very exciting and memorable for her. Unfortunately, I did not join them so no pictures to share…:-(
Eighth Birthday – American Girl Doll in Paris party theme.
Happy Thirteenth Birthday !!!
