Arielle and Danny Turn One

And so just like that Arielle turned one. I remember as if it was yesterday we were going to Tucson as Michelle told us she was ready. Time do fly and it doesn't ask for permission. Her fiesta was pretty nice, pretty much all the family attended and she got a lot of presents. A Dora themed jumpy was rented by her nino and some chairs and tables too. Typical to Mexican families we had the party in the front yard away from the swimming pool. There were just too many little ones and the water isn't even warm yet so we didn't want to be jumping in after the little ones.

The cake was most excellent, I don't have pictures yet but I may add some later on. My daughter in law's mom bakes the best cakes. Last week she did the pirate theme for Diego, this week it was a colorful cake with a separate little cake just for her in the shape of a teddy bear. The frosting was all pink with a second tier cake in the shape of a yellow butterfly. Instead of sugar she uses Splenda and low fat low sugar frosting. I am not a cake eater but hers are really so good that I may eat a slice or two.

My brother's baby also turns one year old today, his party was on Saturday. I tell ya they just never end, even skipping some of the parties there are still so many birthdays and when you are about to hit the big 5-0 kids parties get harder and harder to attend. So far we still make an appearance in most of them but we will let the younger generations have a ball at this fiestas while us grown ups can stay home and enjoy some much needed peace and tranquility.

Mr Manuel - Yeah, sometimes sounds like I complain but I know it's a blessing to have such a nice big family. As I get older its a little more tiresome.

Erin said...

Happy Birthday Grand FAther! My youngest was 1 in January. Like you we enjoyed a Mexican Fiesta. I'm always tired early, but we weren't the first ones to leave. We had a great time. It was also in the front yard.

Jose said...

Erin - Wasn't it? One year just flew by. I did't take any pictures but I'll try to "stea" some from my daughter.

Betty - LOL The front yard is the gathering place now. With so many little ones we just didn't want them by the pool.

Michelle said...

You can steal some tonight
