Happy Happy Birthday Little Ria

For some reason
I can't access any
of my old pictures..
the ones taken before
about 3 years ago..
Guess I will have to
call the
Computer Repairman..
otherwise known as
to come and figure that out.
So...for this birthday..
We are taking a short
trip back in history..

Here's the earliest picture
I can lay my hands on
of Ria...
Is this a beautiful child?
That is SweetCheeks as a baby
crawling around..
she looked up to her
big sissy-even then.

And when she was three
she and her sister

were in a wedding that

was photographed for a

national magazine.

This is one of the pictures

that appeared in the spread.

Our little thumb-sucker...

Look at those eyes...

Here she is on another

summer day...another wedding.

She loves to swing

and play outside...She took baths in the

kitchen sink long past

the time she outgrew them...

But...that is just what you

do at Nana's house...Or sometimes..

you just lay around and

snuggle on the down-filled chair..

(everyone's favorite)She is prone to do

gymnastics...even with a dress on...and loves her sister, Lulu,

who seems to love making faces

when the camera goes click...And she loves her baby sister,


who is always good for a laugh...Most of the week she is in school...

and is a very good student..

although the teacher says she is

"very social"

Really? Seriously?

Our Ria?But today was her day..

It ended like this...With one happy little face

waiting to blow out the candles

on her cupcakes...

Happy Birthday , Sweet Little Ria!However,

the fun started much earlier

in the day..

and BabyE was in on the fun...

So~ If you are very good

and promise not to eat all of the

cupcakes that are left,



I will tell you about

Snips & Giggles...

Yes. I. Will.

Happy Birthday, dear Ria!

LOVE the kitchen sink photo! My babies and grandbabies spent lots of time in Mom-Mom's kitchen sink. Puddles of water everywhere, but still a delight.

When we were little, my mom stuck us in her washtubs for the scrub down! Oh, brother!

Beautiful granddaughters Diana, each and everyone of them. Happy Birhtday to her♥

Happy birthday, sweet, sweet Ria! What a beautiful big girl you are now! Love your mezmerizing blue eyes, enchanting smile ( especially when you scrunch up your nose), and your lovely spirit which is captured in every photo of you. May all of your days be as sweet and precious as you are.
Hugs- Tete

Happy Birthday sweet Ria! What a beautiful little girl you are. All the sisters are beautiful and so sweet. I'm sure you had a wonderful celebration.

She's just precious! And so grown up! They just grow up way too fast. But, as grandma's we know that, so maybe that's why we think we have to hold them so much when they are little.
