Busy Weekend

We had a weekend that was super busy. As Marvin said, "Now that gas prices have declined, the Grimms are hitting the road!!" First was a trip to Hoover to celebrate Elliott's first birthday and Daddy Ben's 36th birthday. Elliott was one on December 5th and Ben celebrated on December 6th. Ben got a great birthday present when Alabama beat Missouri to become the SEC champs!

Daddy had to wear the birthday hat!!

Chocolate cupcakes!

Daddy , Elliott and Big Al the elephant that Granny Pat got for Elliott.

Roll Tide!!

All three of these Grimms have birthdays the first week in December.

After our party on Saturday, we headed to the Alabama Shakespeare Festival to see A Christmas Carol with Kendall. ( And yes, Alabama does have some culture!!)

All dressed up to head to Montgomery.

Special times with the grands are the best holiday gifts for grandparents.

The statue of Shakespeare is decorated for the season!!

Me and my oldest grand...she taught us how to be grandparents.

Kendall asked Grandpa to take these pictures of glad she loves spending time with the old folks. I know that one day she will be busy with other pursuits so again I must remember to cherish the moment.

We enjoyed the play...our seats were almost on the stage! I think Kendall's favorite part was all the costumes as she hopes to become a fashion designer one day.  Another memory for the books!!

Wonderful moments to cherish and store away, for sure. The time does have a way of passing by too swiftly!
