Persephone is my youngest grandchild. Today is her first birthday. We are celebrating her birthday on Sunday. We are having a cookout and of course a cake! She won't remember the event, but it is nice to get together as a family to celebrate.

My kids for some reason don't see the need for a party. I hold the parties here so we can celebrate.

Happy 1st Birthday Persephone!!!!! A very different name I'd say. I have a nice named Tomorrow's Dream and another niece named rainey River, and a nephew named Skye Blue. So different names are in my world also. My oldest grandson will be 9 tomorrow. (Sun). I love celebrating their b-days the most. the youngsters love the surprises etc. When my daughter was 8 I made a gumball shaped cake by hand and decorated it and to this day she still wants me to do the same for one of my grandsons. Who knows, maybe I will soon. It had black and red licorice and gumballs for decorations. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Sorry I missed this. I hope she had a wonderful birthday. I remember my grandson's first birthday, he didn't care about all the stuff going on but he sure liked his cake.

Happy Birthday to your granddaughter, I hope you have a nice day. My family just had a get together. My sister and her family are moving out of state. My mom was here, some of my grandchildren. Son and DIL and of course my sis and her son. I wish more of us could have been here. We all had a good time, good food and I have a pool. It was a hot day and the pool felt wonderful.

Oh she is SO cute!!! Just be sure to take lots of pictures, so when she is older she can see them. My oldest still loves looking at her 1st B-day photos when we turned her lose in the bath tub with a chocolate cake, :oD

I agree, I have heard some talk that we shouldn't celebrate the birthdays of young children since they won't remember them anyway, but I don't agree. I don't see any reason why the rest of the family and their friends can't celebrate the birthday of the child even if they can't remember. I think that we should enjoy every moment we can with them and cherish them while they are still young.

Persephone is in good company, today, that is Saturday, is Garden Gerty's birthday. She is a lot more than one year old. LOL. We are celebrating by my hubby starting a new job, that will have him home before eleven in the evening. It is the best thing that I can imagine right now. Give her lots of birthday hugs.

Ah she looks so cute and that smile, she just looks as if she's got something up her sleeve. Persephone is such a nice name, Greek isn't it? I hope you all have a wonderful time and Persephone gets lots of toys and lots of hugs!!!
