We finally got up to our grandsons for his birthday....he was 9 on the 2nd but we were in Pennsylvania at the time...if you read the post below you know we were in search of a Lego set for him and finally found the one he wanted.

What a huge smile when he opened it! Makes you glad you went from store to store and town to town to find it.

We also gave him another of his favorites....a loaf of Cinnamon bread from Central Market in downtown Lancaster, PA. Whenever we go out there we bring him home a loaf and he calls it CIRCLE BREAD and has toast every morning until it's gone!

I froze the bread immediately upon coming home so he'd get it fresh. It's in the white bag....see the huge grin when he smelled what it was...oh the aroma is soooo wonderful
(Big sister Emily)

And before we even sat down to eat he had it all put together...he's a whiz at these things!
So he got to open his gifts and then we stayed for a Chili supper and cake.
A fun night had by all.


  1. Karen,
    It's all worth that running around when you see that huge smile, isn't it? Such cute grandkids.

  2. He's a cutie. Look at that smile in the first picture.

    Glad he had such a great birthday.


  3. He looks very happy ! What a great smile ! :-)

  4. What beautiful smiles they both have. Aren't grandchildren the BEST?


  5. Hi Karen,
    Looks like he had a fantastic birthday-his smile gives it away! ;)
    Boy he is a wiz with those legos that's quite a machine he built!

    Have a wonderful day

  6. WOW - Looks at that great smile!! Yep, I would say you made him pretty happy!

  7. MMMMMMMMM! Cinnamon bread??? your grand son hs good taste LOL!

    Both of them are JUST adorable!

    Way to go on the gift Grandma!!! :)

  8. He just looks so happy! I love spoiling the grandkids , it does my heart good to see the smiles on their faces. You did good!!!

  9. That smile says it all! I can't wait for that kind of joy when we have our grand daughter!

    He looks so proud of himself. I think Lego's are such great toys - our 5 year olds in preschool loved them and they are so good for so many skills.

    Have a great weekend!

  10. That smile makes all the running around to find the set he wanted worthwhile.

  11. What adorable grandbabies you have!!!
    Heck, I'd be grinnin' from ear to ear too after openin' a loaf of that delicious cinnamon bread!!
    Thanks for sharin', those pics made me smile! :> )

  12. What a sweet smile your handsome grandson has! He certainly looks happy with his gifts. How wonderful too, that a loaf of sweet bread can bring as big a smile as a set of lego's. :)
    Bless his heart!
    It sounds like you had a wonderful time at his birthday dinner.
    blessings to you~

  13. Karen, Don't you just love those big smiles when they are opening their presents. Just melts your heart.


  14. Hi Karen,
    Thanks so much for your comment on my last means alot to me.
    I know that things will get better at some point, but for now my sister and I are trying to do what we can to help our kids. I know that we will be a stronger/closer family because of all that we are going through.
    hugs, Cindy
