Big smile, Big cake.


The weekly photo challenge “Big,” is I think, answered by this photo of my seven-year-old granddaughter Sienna, with her big smile and her gorgeous big birthday cake. How I wish I could have been there for her party on Saturday.

We spoke to her on Skype yesterday, and she showed me how she scored ‘Big Time’ with her presents.  Her prize new possession is an American Girl Doll, who comes complete with wheelchair, crutches, and a cast, as well as bandages, plasters and a hospital gown. She also has her athletics kit for when she’s all better and able to go to the gym. :) Dolls sure have changed a lot from when I was a child.

  1. Your granddaughter has the most beautiful , big smile. Wishing her all the happiness and blessings on her 7th birthday and everyday.She is about my son’s age…a fun, exciting age and we are lucky to be there to see all the magic!

  2. Dude I totally love this picture. Your granddaughter has an awesome smile. I’m sorry you couldn’t be there, but at least you got a chance to see the picture and see her on Skype :)

  3. That doll you described is amazing. My husband was in a wheelchair for 19 years and sometimes reactions from some kids were strange. I wonder if the doll makes that situation more acceptable. Toys and gadgets sure have changed in this day and age, though.

    • Yes it is, Gilly. there seem to be a whole lot of features with dolls these days, even ones with no hair, in sympathy with cancer sufferers.

  4. An amazing cake and what a lovely smile Sienna has. Very pretty girl. How did we ever manage without Skype? It’s the only way my parents have been able to share in some of their grand-children’s birthdays in various parts of the globe. It’s not the same as being there obviously but it goes some way to making the separation a little easier. Thanks for sharing Sylvia. :-)

  5. Happy Birthday Sienna! That is one magnificent cake! Someone spent a fortune in time decorating that! Hope you and your friends enjoyed it but it would actually be a sin cutting a cake like that!
