Sweet sixteen

Today was another cold, wintry day, with snow threatening. Again. It continues to threaten but never eventuates, but it is cold, -5 degs Celsius tonight. But who cares - we didn't - today we had a birthday to celebrate.

Our youngest granddaughter turned sweet sixteen today.

Happy birthday Chloe, we love you heaps.

We went out for lunch after church with some of the family and one of her friends. The snap above is Chloe sitting next to her aunty, then her Dad and her other Granma.

Young Danny was there as well but middle grandson Jack had much more important things to do, he was at the swimming pool celebrating his mates' 10th birthday. That's where I'd be too if I was a 10 year old boy.

After we finished our first course we decided to have dessert. My first choice was for banoffi pie (I love banoffi pie) but someone said 'we have birthday cake as well'. Hmm, banoffi pie followed by birthday cake, I don't think so. So parfait it was. Followed by birthday cake. Red velvet birthday cake. Oh dear, 
I really shouldn't have had dessert, not even parfait. 
I had a tiny piece of birthday cake there 
and brought another piece home to eat later.

 Much to Chloe's horror we sang Happy Birthday to her, 
in a public place. Then it was time to venture out into 
the weather and head for home after a very enjoyable
 afternoon of good company and good food.

Stay comfortable wherever you are.
See you next time


  1. Happy Birthday to a lovely young lady!

  2. Happy Birthday to your granddaughter! Looks like you all had a wonderful time! If I may ask, what country do you live in? Can't believe that you may have snow! It is about 90 degrees F here in New Jersey today!

  3. A wonderful family celebration for sweet Chloe's 16th.
    All that delicious cake and dessert, -mouth watering here- I am on a diet!
    Stay warm Diana, and of course if it snows I'll expect some pics! :)

  4. Beautiful girl :) I can see the family resemblance.

  5. Hi Diana! Oh, what a wonderful time with your family! Little Miss Sweet Sixteen is a gorgeous young lady! Snow? It's so hot here I can hardly stand it. Thanks for being such a sweet blog friend and I'll keep you updated as we move along on this new journey.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  6. Happy 16th Birthday to your BEAUTIFUL granddaughter, Chloe. What a wonderful family gathering, Diana♡♡♡ I smiled that the song must have blushed her.
    Oh Yes, we should stay comfortable wherever we are; dreary muggy rainy days here(^^;)
    Sending you Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*
