Lillian turns 2!

I have an adorable little niece. Well, actually I have 3 adorable nieces but only 2 I see regularly and this post is showcasing the youngest niece; LillyBug.

Lillian, Lilly, LillyBug, RolyPoly Head....whichever you decide to call her :-D, turned 2 the first of January and her mommy planned a BIG shindig at Chuck E. Cheese's. It was a small family affair with just McKayla and me (Chris was with his Dad and John was at work), my niece and nephew and their parents and of course Lilly and her mom, Kathleen.

I think the kids had fun and there's not much else to say, so I'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story. :-)


Meeting Chuck E. Cheese


Boogy woogy!

I will break in here to tell you about the Ticket Blaster. Kathleen wanted to go in with Lilly not knowing how she'd do in a tube with blasts of air blowing your hair and tickets in your face. (Not to mention that a 2 year old probably isn't going to get many tickets on her own. LOL) She might have been a little overwhelmed, but I think she enjoyed it. :-)

Her skirt turned into quite the nice
ticket catcher. LOL

I told Kathleen she should wear my jacket so the hood would
catch tickets......I think my idea worked. :-D

Someone had a busy day.  :-)

I took TONS of pictures but these were some of my favorites. I took a lot of McKayla too b/c well, duh, she's mine and she's cute LOL but I wanted to keep this more about Lilly since it was HER special day. :-) but I still have to include these next few that McKayla and I had done. ;-D

Everyone had a great time. Lilly had the time of her life running around willy nilly, playing all the games, playing on the playground and having her cousins to join in on the fun.


  1. What a fun birthday party!! I haven't been to ChuckECheese since I was a teeny tiny kid and I didn't know about the ticket blaster. That is so cool. Happy Birthday Lillian!!

    1. It had been AGES since I'd been too, not much had changed but that Ticket Blaster was pretty cool! :-D

The Great Dane Standard Through the Ages Part III ~1976~

The 1976 Official Illustrated Standard
Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…

(Typed for easy reading below each picture which has made this post EXTREMELY long. Also, you *should* be able to click on the pictures to enlarge, but sadly still not enough to read the charts.)

There are only five recognize colors; all these basically fall into four color strains: 1 FAWN and BRINDLE, 2. HARLEQUIN and HARLEQUIN bred BLACK, 3. BLUE and BLUE bred BLACK, 4. BLACK. Color classifications being well founded, the Great Dane Club of America, Inc. considers it an inadvisable practice to mix color strains and it is the club's policy to adhere to the following matings:
