Happy Birthday, Roo!!


Our precious little Andrew, a.k.a. Roo, turned one year old this weekend.  It hardly seems a year could have passed so quickly.


He is the sweetest little soul you would ever hope to know.  And, a Momma's boy all the way.  Yes, his Momma and his Noni made this clown hat for his Circus themed party.  Poor guy.  What will we do to him next... first the Lion Mane... now, a Clown Hair Hat!


I'm deferring to his Momma to post the really fun photos of the AFTER-he-tasted-cake-for-the-first-time photos!! 


Noni loved Little Roo in his Hoot Hat, made with lots of love for the Birthday Boy. 

Roo, Noni and Pop Pop love you bigger than the sky... to the moon and back!!  We are so happy you invited us to share your birthday with you!!  XOXOXO

I'm dragging... the trip to the Little Men's or home again is a LONG day, even by plane.  Lots to catch up on after my fun trip!!  I hope everyone has had a wonderful week!  blessings to all ~ tanna

So happy that you had a wonderful time with your Little Men (and their parents). That hoot hat is just the berries. Is it a ravelry pattern?
Your family photo is so sweet...glowing with love and joy.

I just can't tell you how much we loved having you and Pop Pop here. I know the trip is such a beating, but it sure did bring all of us such joy to have you here to celebrate little Roo's first birthday. And I don't have enough thank you's for both of you for all that you did to help us pull off one amazing Big Top Celebration! I LOVE YOU BIGGER THAN THE SKY -- TO THE MOON AND BACK! XOXO

Tanna, he is so cute in that hat. Can't believe he is one already! Time is just going by way too quickly.

Cindy said...

Hi Tanna,
Your grandsons are both so cute! What a darling little hat you made for Andrew and what a fun party idea.
Have a wonderful week.
Hugs, Cindy

These wee boys are so, so sweet...those big brown eyes will be irresistible to the girls when they get older! I can see why you are so smitten Noni! Glad you had a lovely, if tiring, time. (You look so happy!)

Kate I said...

And the hat...priceless!

podso said...

What a sweetheart! And to wear those hats! So cute. Looks like a wonderful time. Love the cake too. This weekend is our littlest's first as well. Time has flown this year. Glad you had a good week ... But of course you would!

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Happy Birthday to your little Roo! My, how the time flies...it doesn't seem like it a year has gone by already since he was born! The hats are really cute. I can see by your wonderful photos that everyone had a grand time. Get rested up now and enjoy the rest of the week!

Judy S. said...

What a happy looking celebration! (Couldn't help noticing how much your daughter takes after her mama.) Cute kiddies and great photos. Have a great week!

Julie Harward said...

Oh my Tanna...happy birthday to such a cutie! Love the hats, they make your grands so so cute! Rest up and post more pics, love them! :)

Lauri said...

That clown hat is to die for!! I've never seen anything so delightful, love it! I'm so glad y'all were able to celebrate with sweet Roo in person.

Deborah said...

I'm glad you had such a good time and made it home safely. Those boys are sure cute!

From the Kitchen said...

Happy birthday to your little clown!! I've been checking in on y'all while away. Loved Amanda's gift to you on Mother's Day. I've always thought the boys looked more like their dad but one photo of little Amanda shows just how much they look like her as well--a beautiful blending of genes!! I think it is a tiring day anytime one flies to their area from anywhere!! Well worth it, however!

Working on a R.I. post.

Best,
Bonnie

Happy birthday!!! His hats are lovely and fun-such a wonderful celebration :)

Janette@Janette's Sage said...

I am smiling and celebrating with you all...too, too precious and those hats, oh too cute. I can't wait to hear his comments about them when he is a teenager!!! LOL

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Unbelievable. 1 year old. Look at those long legs. And that smile. And those cute hats. :) When they are young, you can do just about anything and it's a-o-k. As teenagers, they don't want to listen to fashion advice, that's for sure. :) Get some rest. I'm dragging and haven't been anywhere. Counting down the days to the end of the school year and the beginning of summer vacation. Best wishes, Tammy

Tricia @ saving room for dessert said...

Oh my what a beautiful family! I know you had a wonderful visit. Time does fly :) Your grandsons are absolutely gorgeous!

Kelly said...

He is so cute wearing his homemade wigs and hats! I guess he will have to get used to all the things y'all make and have him model for you. Ha! Hope he had a wonderful birthday.

Deb said...

love that clown hat...you are so clever...so happy you got to spend time with your little men...I couldn't imagine being far away from my Hotrod...

Dianne said...

LOVE the pics of little Roo and the hats are adorable! Hope you get rested soon. I KNOW what these wonderful trips can do to a Grandmom! ;-)

Dana said...

What a fun fun celebration. LOVE the hat. So perfect! I know the icing on the cake was having you guys there.

Debbie said...

I can hardly believe he is one year old already. He and his big brother are so adorable and get cuter every day. Aren't you glad to be there for the big event?

I remember the lion mane, and the pictures with the clown hair totally crack me up.

I hope you are all having the time of your lives.

Catherine said...

Dear Tanna, Time does fly!
You look beautiful, wonderful, happy and content!
Thank you for sharing these precious photos.
I am so glad you are feeling better.
Blessings dearest. Catherine

no spring chicken said...

No way! Can he really be a year old already? This is crazy, I feel like Auntie Debbie. :) Thanks for sharing your beautiful boys with those of us who enjoy living grandparenthood vicariously through you!!

The scarf? Wow!!

The mother's day treasure from your daughter? It speaks volumes of the love you've imparted. Well done mama.

Blessings, Debbie

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

Hi Tanna..
What a handsome little man your 'Roo' is!
Looks like a wonderful birthday celebration.
Cute, cute hats!

I'm going over to see what pictures your daughter posted too.

Have a great day!
Smiles :)

Debbie said...

I love the family picture! Beautiful! Yes, he'll "roo" the day you made him wear those hats, but they're so cute! Happy Birthday, Roo!

California Girl said...

OMG that boy is going to GET IT from his friends when he's a teenager. I still show photos of the boys to their GFs now. It's a riot!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Happy birthday to "Roo"! What a happy first birthday celebration this was, I love his colorful clown hat and cake!

I know that flying is very tiring but the moments spent with family are so worth it! Glad you are back home safely.

Thank you for your compliments on my daughter's wedding and best wishes for the new couple. We are on "Cloud 9" with happiness!

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

LOVE all the pics! LOVE! The cake is darling too!

Kathy said...

Love that birthday hat. My grandson, who is now 8, has had a variety of birthday hats over the years. The one he has now he has worn about the past three years. He loves it and makes the decision each year to wear it. Every year we say this will be the last year for the birthday hat, but he fools us every time. We know when he decides he will no longer wear the hat, he won't be that little boy anymore but will be growing up to be a young man!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

What amazing hats! He is such a cutie!
