A birthday, a black eye and a collie eye

Time certainly is whizzing by. It was grandson Euan's first birthday yesterday but it really doesn't feel like a whole year has passed since he arrived on the scene!

February 2008

February 2009

We took some of the dogs and went down for an overnight stay with Ian and Lynne and then Euan had a party for some of his little pals and family. You may have noticed that he is sporting a black eye, a favourite fashion statement for many a toddler, after a bruising encounter with a chair. It was even more impressive last week!

Lynne gets papped.
Louis tries to help assemble the new sit and ride.........

........there's a squeaky in that horn and he's trying his hardest to get it!

Have rucksack.........

.......will go hiking.

The fab Humpty Dumpty birthday cake, cleverly made by Euan's other granny.

Never mind stacking.....this is what cups are for!

Two of our dogs in law, Sam and Tara.
Sam watches the ball and Tara, a real sheepdog at heart, watches Sam

Still watching.......even under the hedge!
Poised and ready to round up

A year old already!! The cake looks fantastic. The dogs looked as though they had as much fun as Euan did.
