Russell is Three!

     Russell, our grandson, is 3!  How did that happen so quickly?  However it happened, we celebrated on Sunday.  It was a fun theme, after the movie Coco.  I understand it is a good movie and it is Russell approved so it must be!

Coco themed birthday party

The Mexican food was catered and very delicious, but the real star of the day was Russell's Cake.  It was beautiful, delicious and homemade. 

Vanilla and chocolate cake

There was even a Piñata! Russell took a few wacks at it, but will have to work out for next years attempt.  One of the bigger kids took care of business, though, and all the kids were happy.

Of course, there were a few presents involved!

It was definitely a good day.  Russell is such a good grandchild.  We are so blessed.

Now, back to the Piñata and the way my twisted mind works.  The instant the horses head came off clean, I thought to myself, The Godfather!  It looks like I have my theme for Halloween.  I do have the perfect centerpiece, after all.   Ok, ok, I may have to wait a few years for that Halloween theme to play out.

Good morning, Ray! Now that's what I call a party! Happy Birthday to Russell. You ask how he could be 3 years old already? I ask how our oldest grandson could be 32 already and a father himself!

Good morning, Endre Barath, Jr.  We did have fun.  Russell is a great entertainer. 

 

Maybe one day you will be telling Russell's story, James Dray.  That would be a real honor.

Thank you, Michael Jacobs.  Russell does have the best smile and I am not biased at all.  😉

 

Good morning, Grant Schneider.  I thought the shirts were a nice touch.  They were a surprise and they were made by Russell's mom, Ashley.  She is so talented and, along with her mom, Lisa, has a talent for making events special.

Good morning, Nina Hollander, Broker.  Yes, those questions are ever present.  My dad looks at me and says, "how can you be 58 already?"  Time keeps moving faster and faster!

 

Hi Roy Kelley. Any time I can add a smile to your face is a good day.  Thank you for bringing so many smiles to our faces.

I agree, Wayne Martin.   We learn everyday too.  I had no idea being a grandpa would be so fun.  

 

Yes, the shirts are way cool, Kat Palmiotti.  We are so lucky to have family members that make birthday's and other celebrations so special.

Hi Brian England.  Yes, we all had a great time.  Watching the kids with the pinata was especially fun.  It was scary too, but fun!

 

The best part of this party, Joan Cox, was that all I had to do is show up to have fun.  😃

Thank you, Ron and Alexandra Seigel.  We are going to extend Russell's celebration next week with three days at the happiest place on earth, Disneyland.  Lucky kid. Lucky Grandpa.  I love Disneyland!

Raymond Henson, eXp Realty - Happy Birthday to Russell! What a happy boy who deserves all that you showed and so much more! Your family photographs and all the photos were very exciting to see. Actually, I thought the cake was a hat decoration for the party but when you mentioned it was the Birthday Cake, my jaw dropped! What an incredible birthday party and I love how happy everyone is for this lovely grandchild of yours. This was a grand celebration with love, thoughtfulness, generousity, and happiness. As an example of family love, "My cup runneth over!" (Hebrews Bible (Psalms: 23:5).

Raymond Henson, eXp Realty - Those shirts were amazing! Perhaps they can be made into a quilt someday into the future for one more special gift for Russell when he's older?

When I first saw the cake, I thought it was fake and just a decoration to go with the Coco theme, Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP.  Some people are just so talented.  

 

Great idea regarding the shirts.  My guess is that we will all wear them out.  Next week we take Russell to Disneyland (both families) and I am sure the shirts will be out once again.
