Happy Birthday Kenzie

Today our oldest granddaughter turned 9 years old.  Her name is Mackenzie but we've always called her Kenzie.  Although she's the oldest granddaughter, she's not the oldest grandchild, as we have several grandsons who are older than her and who she loves to get together with.

However, for this birthday, she and her family travelled from Edmonton to Lethbridge to celebrate it (and New Year's Eve) with us and the rest of the southern Alberta family.

Kenzie sat at the adult table

The kids' table in front and the adults table  table behind...nothing but cousins, siblings, aunts, uncles and grandparents.

Kenzie, Layla and Syd reading a card before opening a gift.

It was a fun party with nine grandchildren, daughters, sons-in-law and a daughter-in-law.  We'll have a full hectic household here for a few days but it's great to see the cousins having such fun with one another, and visiting with the kids that we don't see as often as we'd like to.

And when the party was over, son-in-law Curtis, who is a chiropractor, worked the kinks out of son-in-law  Greg.

The fun never ends......

Aren't grandchildren the greatest how blessed we are!


Never a dull moment, ey? Kenzie is beautiful. Love her name. HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Nine is so much fun. And to be able to sit with the adults, PRICELESS. What a wonderful family you have. Looks like a good time was had by all. GREAT celebration. How lucky are you to have a son-in-law who is a chiropractor. You know I have a few kinks that need fixing. Could you give me a referral? LOL Take care. Hope you have a healthy and happy New Year.

Even though your days will be hectic, family celebrations like that just can't be beat. How wonderful that so many of you could get together to celebrate her 9th birthday. Having family spread out all over my self and can appreciate having that many together at one time. I hope you have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Happy Birthday to Kenzie - what a lovely name by the way!
It looks like so much fun in your house with all that family there. The children sure look like they were enjoying themselves.
Thanks for your lovely comment - I use photoshop elements 2 - a very old version but does enough for me to practice on - I've got a lot to learn.
Hope you have a lovely New Year. All the best to you and yours. :))
