It is hard to believe that two years have passed since that night that Bernie and I sat in the nurses' lounge at our local hospital awaiting news of our grandson's arrival!
It was with much joy that we greeted him then, and he still gives us great joy.
When he turned two recently, he actually had three celebrations.
The first was at his Daycare, on the actual day of his birthday. A litle party was organised and all the children sat (using their very best manners) at the outdoor table and joined in. Kim had made a Pirate cake. Charles helped William to blow out the candles and to cut it.
Yummy, that 's good! Well, the icing is anyway!
They set the Jumping Castle up, and everyone had great fun!
That evening we had a small family gathering to see William open his presents. I bet they won't be able to make him wait until the evening next year!
He had great fun, and Sienna and Teddy joined in the spirit of the occasion too, and added to his enjoyment!
The following Sunday, there was the big party at the Parish Centre, with lots of his friends, and a few parents and grandparents too.
It was Pirate party and Kim had supplied pirate outfits for everyone. Evdn some of the grown ups donned headscarves and eye patches!
There was another wonderful Pirate Cake, and our talented Tina had painted a special Pirate picture!
