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.
That’s quite the BIG cake!
Yes it is. It had to go around 50 people, so it needed to be big. 🙂
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!
Thanks so much. Yes we are so fortunate to be able to watch these little people grow up into fine adults. 🙂
What a lovely girl! And, a superduper cake…They really match, the two of them!
Thanks so much, for your lovely comment. 🙂
Delightful share! She looks very loved! 🙂 …and the cake is incredible!
Thanks so much for your visit and lovely comment, Michelle. Yes, my granddaughter is a little treasure, and we all love her to bits. 🙂
Adorable, AD – she is a beauty! Both my granddaughters have American Girl dolls – they’re really a big deal in some areas! 😉
Thanks so much. She is a lovely little girl, and loves her American Girl dolls. 🙂
scored big, big smile, big all around. Very cute, in a big sorta way. 🙂
Thanks, Gemma. 🙂
@Adin, congrats with Sienna, 7 years old wat a beautiful life 😛
Thanks so much, DellaAnna. 🙂
How much luggage is the doll allowed, lol. Lovely pic and great cake!
Well this doll had quite a bit of luggage, but I had my ‘bag man’ with me. 😀
Oh yeah he’s better work before he gets into trouble – men are actually the oppressed ones – women manage to swing it the other way though! So clever of you you woman you 🙂 PS. You got there safely?
Yes, I’m here. “Meet me in Miami.” 😀
Hmmm, if I start up the jetski now I might be there in, er, sometime after noon some day? LOL
One fine day when it’s raining. 😆
It’s a deal!
What a beauty she is!
Thanks, Tilly. 🙂
Wow, that is some cake 🙂
Certainly is, footsy. I used to get lopsided birthday cakes with smarties on top. 🙂
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 🙂
Thanks, TG. 🙂
she is soooooooooooo…….beautiful!
Well, I think so too. As her granny, I’m not at all biased. 🙂
She is so precious!!!
Thanks, Nicole. Precious is a very good word indeed. 🙂
that cake is incredible…wow
Yes, I never saw a prettier cake in my entire life. 🙂
That’s sure is some cake!
I never saw such a beautiful birthday cake. 🙂
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, I think it’s great that children are being made aware of the fact that not everyone is perfect like Barbie. 🙂
Don’t get me started on Barbie… 😉
Ok, I won’t . 🙂
Now she is 7 I bet she feels like a BIG girl 😀
I’m sure she does, Chris. 🙂
What a lovely smile! Happy Birthday to your beautiful grandchild 🙂
Thanks so much, Grace. 🙂
Now that is indeed a big cake!!
happy b day to the young lady 😉
Isn’t it just!? Thanks, 68. She had a great Birthday. 🙂
Happy birthday 2 you, I mean, her.
Thanks so much, on Sienna’s behalf. 🙂
I wouldn’t mind a bite of that cake 😉
Well, me too, TA. 🙂
That’s quite a cake. I’ve never heard of the make of doll but I’m impressed that disability features.
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.
Well you sure have this right…BIG smile and BIG cake! Outstanding!
Thanks, Phil. 🙂
A Big day for your granddaughter. Nice post.
Thanks so much. 🙂
Now that’s a cake worth getting….
I never saw a prettier cake. 🙂
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. 🙂
Thanks, Adrian. So true about Skype. Glad you enjoyed my post. 🙂
Pretty girl and a lovely cake!
Thanks, SC. 🙂
Happiest of belated birthdays to her! She looks so cute (and that cake so GOOD)! 😀
Thanks so much, Steve. 🙂
Happy Birthday to your beautiful granddaughter.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Thanks so much, Francine. 🙂
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!
PS. AD, your blog does not allow me to “like” your post.
Thanks so much, Kragenhai. The cake was a bought one, and I think it’s just so pretty. I wish I’d been there to have a piece. 🙂
She’s a beautiful grand daughter – look like it runs in the family 😉
Thanks, Hopestar. 🙂 Hugs to you.
Wow what a big cake and a big smile like that,,certainly a happy bunny,, tummy ache coming,, 🙂
Thanks, Gerry. I think that cake had to go around 50 people. 🙂
Is there a doctor in the making in the family? Surely looks like it.
Hehehe. I think it’s just the latest fad, newsy. 🙂
