Today, Monday December 14, 2009, is my precious grand daughter Capri's fifth birthday.  She is my youngest son James's oldest daughter, and has brought sooo much joy and happiness into the hearts of her parents and her grandparents, it could never be measured. 

Capri is the big sister to both JD and Donatella and is such a big help to her mama.  She is bright and enjoys attending her Pre-K class 4 days a week.  She has been blessed with a wonderful imagination.  She can weave an elaborate game of make believe out of "whatever" she can find to play with.  She has only to close her eyes and she becomes whoever it is that has caught her fancy on any given day.  Recently, her love is for Fancy Nancy.  For those of you who are not familiar with this wonderful character, let me just say, she is glitsey and sparkly and fancy in all she wears, says and does.  Soo much fun for a "girly girl"  5 year old.  Her birthday party Saturday was done based on this theme, and everyone who attended had such a good time.  There were crowns for all the girls to wear, and face painting and games, a pinata full of candy, and many other goodies and sweets, and a cake that really was too pretty to cut, made by Kristi @ Yoursugarrush.  Larissa, Capri's mama, read all the kids some Fancy Nancy books while they munched on some popcorn.  Larissa, who had obviously read those books once or twice, haha, did a wonderful job keeping the attention of all the kids, along with most of the adults who were there.  It was a perfect way to celebrate the life of a sweet little girl who has captured the hearts of all who know her. 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY my sweet Capri...Grandma loves you soo much!!  May the Lord bless you and keep and make His face to shine upon you now and forever more. 

Here are some more pictures of this little cutie, and a slide show I put together of her party.  ENJOY...

  1. Your grand daughter is a cutie pie Debbie! Happy Birthday to her.

    I read on my moms blog that you said all your grandkids have had the stomach flu. Poor kids! Hope they are better by now. Hannah has had it too. Not fun.

  2. I love all of these pictures of your Granddaughter. She really has quite the imagination! Riley likes to play dress up, and after doing a little of looking around on the internet for the cake, I fell in love with Fancy Nancy. I think I'll be getting Riley a few books for Christmas. The books sound darling!

    Capri really is such a beautiful girl, I'm glad she had such a great party!

    Thanks for the compliments on the cake!! I really did have such a fun time making it, and I'm glad the birthday girl liked it so much!! Thanks Debbie, for all of the business you have given me in the past couple of years, I love making sweets for you!!!

    I'm sitting here writing you a comment, and Riley is seeing the pictures of Capri all dressed up, she's going, "Oh wow Mommy! So pretty!" I just thought that was cute!

    And on another side note, it was very nice to meet your husband, he seems like a really great guy! You are one lucky lady!!

    Have a great day Debbie!

    I wanted to come by and introduce myself and I have become a follower of yours today. Please stop by and visit me, and if you feel led, I would be honored if you became a follower of mine.


  8. Oh, Debbie, I can just feel your delight in beautiful little Capri! She is all of her costumes, and her darling poses for the camera! You know, I don't even think the parents get as much thrill from their children as we do! I love every single smile, or frown, or playful gesture...they are just the most wonderful gift given to us in our older age! My grandgirls keep me youthful, and busy, but that's good. Just love seeing these precious photos of your birthday girl...Happy Birthday, Capri!

    Hugs and love to you, sweetie!
