Planned:  A fun filled birthday party for Rissie at the park pavilion where the kids can enjoy the playground and run off some steam.  

Weather:  Cold and windy.  

Improvise. Inside party.

Dear Diary,

I'm feeling a little better...  but shhh, I can't let mom know.  She's my slave woman 
 when I'm sick and I've gotten kinda used to it.  

I think I feel the need for a treat now...  But first.  The sad look.  The pity.  The hug around the neck. The belly rub.  The 'poor gracie'.  

I hear the fridge door close...  and I think I smell chickie bird...  catch ya later.  Gracie.


  1. Looks like it was a great party after all! And Gracie, you milk that sickness for all you got! hehe

  2. The party with all those great gifts and cake really looks like it was going to be a lot of fun, rain or shine!!

    Gracie, I'm glad you're feeling well enough to try and fool your Mom! :-)

  3. Happy Birthday Marissa! Bobbi, she looks beautiful and wow, at all those nice presents! Poor Gracie, I hope you got a treat!

  4. Happy party and a cute and cuddly Gracie. I just love her!

  5. HA! I love that last pic of Gracie! She is so cute. Glad the party went well, in spite of the weather.

  6. Happy Birthday Rissi!... and dear Gracie, I hope you are feeling better, you are so darn cute!... xoxo Julie Marie

  7. That looked like a wonderful party no matter the weather!! Glad Gracie is feeling better.
    Yes I worked hard but most of it was fun on the beach!! I made good money too. I bought my first brand new car at age 18.
    Thanks for your visit!!
    xx, Bambi & Fern

  8. That Marissa is so cute! Love the pic with the hat and pom poms.....

    and there is just something about Gracie that makes me smile! I Love love love the pics you share that show her different 'tudes...


  9. Oh, Gracie, you are something else. THE LOOK in that last picture, too much!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY Rissie!!! How old is she now, I can't remember her age, I know she's older than mine by a few years. She is a beautiful vision in that dress, she will steal a lot of boy's hearts!! Absolute favorite picture, Rissie and Gary, it just melts my heart!!!!

  10. Happy Birthday, Marissa! And Gracie...hope you're feelin' better!

  11. Bobbi,
    I'm glad Gracie is beginning to feel better...not fun to be sick with spring in the air!
    Your grand-daughter is absolutely precious! I love her new pink hat and the little boy watching her open presents; he's being so patient. It's so hard for a kid to watch that and not have anything to open...

  12. I swear, all the furkids I know do that!! I am glad Gracie is feeling better!

  13. Glad you're feeling better Gracie! Did you get to join in the party for Marissa? I love the Tangled cake, very cute!

  14. I do believe Marissa likes hot pink just a little!!! She is beautiful and I can tell you all love her bunches and bunches.
    So glad Gracie is feeling better - - - even if she's keeping it a secret from the family.

  15. Always great ability to improvise and work with what you have to work with! Marissa looks like she was enjoying her party; such an adorable little girl!! Cake looked yummy too!!

    Glad Gracie is feeling better too!


  16. Looks like Marissa had a great party! I am glad that Gracie is feeling better!
