Year One

My Grandson, Connor's first birthday. Cake by Janie, my wife, coaching by all of us as well as was the Tom Foolery. A good time was had by all. We couldn't let Connor hog all the fun. Hope you enjoy the fun.

The victim, Connor. The birthday boy. Just look how clean he is.

He's beginning to realize that something's up.

You mean? This is all mine.

Can I eat it all or do I just pretend and play with it?

Maybe I'll do both.

What's this thing in the middle? A one? What's it for? Oh, you mean I'm one. One what?

Okay. I'll just get that thing out of there. Don't think I can eat it anyway.

Sorry, dropped it. Dropped it, dropped it, dropped it, and a few more times too.

Uncle Russell, what are you doing? Trying to pick it up without getting it all over me.

Okay, I'll put it back. Just don't try to eat it.

Grandad, do you want some?

Oh, good. I thought you were going to say yes.

Is this a sugar fix?

I just dare you to take it without getting it all over you.

I think I'm getting pretty full.

Me and my mom and dad. I think they arranged to put on this entire shindig.

The Tom Foolery begins. Dad in his flying cap under grandad's bi-plane. Don't bomb him grandad.

Now it's mom's time to be silly.

Oh great. This is embarrassing. Both of them being silly.

Grandpa and Nana Jones getting into the picture. They sure are fun.

Grandma and Grandad Singleton getting into the picture. The emblem on my hat was Grandad's unit insignia in the army. He's the one with the big cookie duster. Grandma's a lot more sensible.

Quit, you look silly in that hat grandad. You've got your own and it's bigger. Give it back.

The silly Singleton boys. I'm not sure I can live up to their low standard, but I'll try.

Love you and a tip of the hat to you Dad.

Grandad, are we going out this week and being silly? You bet kiddo.
