Irene Is Nine!

We had a little birthday dinner and egg dying party last night to celebrate Irene's April 17th birthday.

She asked for crab and shrimp and artichokes.  She got it all.
After dinner we all dyed Easter eggs.







Then there were presents, of course. 
 New clothes from Grandma and Grandpa.




Fun woven rubber band bracelet craft to Mom.
 And then birthday cookie pie and ice cream to top it all off.

We're not done yet.  The Birthday/Easter pageant continues on Sunday, when there will be a few more family members and an Easter Kitty theme.  I hear there will be Cat Cake.

  5. What a wonderful celebration. Those grand kids are growing up so fast--as grand kids seem to do. My granddaughter would have chosen a very similar meal. Happy Easter to you all!

  8. Happy Birthday Irene! I love your family fun time together. The Easter eggs are lovely. I am coloring Easter eggs right now myself. My husband asked if I would ever outgrow this! :) No!

    Everything you do is so beautiful!

  9. Crab and shrimp artichokes? I just saw a cooking show where they made that and it looked wonderful. We make stuffed artichokes, but do it the traditional way with just breadcrumbs, garlic, and parmesan cheese. But your way looks great!
    What a wonderful birthday!

  11. Happy Birthday Irene. Nine is my favorite age! Full of curiosity, able to participate in nearly anything, and full of enthusiasm for whatever is offered.
