My two Birthday Sweeties!

Happy Birthday, Arulai!

Today is my Precious Grandbaby’s 2nd birthday!  We celebrated her birthday on Monday along with her Papa’s.  Dannye took pictures, but I doubt even the best photograph could portray the excitement and joy on that baby’s face when we all sang Happy Birthday to her on Monday.

She just bubbled all over!  She didn’t miss a beat when we told her to blow out her candles – we even had her do it twice because of the camera misfire!  She was a happy little doll.

She didn’t actually eat any cake until much later because she got side-tracked by her gifts.  Papa and I gave her a baby and stroller for her birthday, and she just loved them.

Dan said the baby doll looked just like Papa!

She “strolled” miles up and down my folks’ ramp off their front porch.  And talked and sang all the way to that baby.

Now she gets to have some cake!

I am so grateful we were able to spend this birthday with her.  She was a joy all the day!  Nathanael, Emily, and Arulai had just driven in from Florida late Sunday night, so I wasn’t at all sure if they would be up to celebrating with us at Mama’s house with Kunk, Aunt K & Family, and Gen plus our own Petty Bunch.  But we had the most wonderful day, and then they stayed after all the rest of family left and watched a movie with us.  Nathanael had really been wanting to watch “Mall Cop” with his Dad – my husband loves slapstick type humor – and he was rewarded with knee-slapping guffaws from Bill throughout the movie.  (I don’t recommend movies – everyone has different convictions – but we enjoyed this one.)  We all piled up on the bed in our room and watched it on the huge (not room-sized huge, but pretty doggone big!) TV my boss recently gave me – it was great!  Arulai kept asking for “pau-cor”, but I didn’t have any.  Kinda made me sad!  But she sat in my lap the whole evening, and we had a blast!


This afternoon I went over to Dan’s as she was giving Arulai her gift from Pamela and Will – a pink glove, baseball, and bat!  Oh, so adorable!!

Happy Birthday, Bill Petty!!

Today is my Beloved’s birthday!  I am so blessed to have him in my life these many years. 

I edited this post to say Happy Birthday to Arulai, so Bill’s Happy Birthday disappeared!  Oh, well, I’ll do better next time!

God Bless your Day! 



About Petty Bunch

The Petty Bunch is what we have called our family since Bill and I (Janina) began our family back in the early 1980s. We have gone down many roads together - homeschooling our kiddoes, enjoying the freedom of entrepreneurship many years, working at "real jobs" other years. Through it all, we have been loved with God's everlasting love, and have found that underneath are His everlasting arms! We are blessed to have been married for over 36 years, and have 3 incredible adult children, a wonderful daughter-in-law, an amazing son-in-law, and SEVEN grandchildren: four precious granddaughters, three handsome grandsons - so far. We are empty nesters, still enjoy the life of an entrepreneur and the freedom it gives us to continue enjoying our kids and now, their kids!

    God has richly blessed our family through the addition of Bill Petty to our circle.  He has loved you with an unconditional, everlasting love and has embraced us all as his own.   He is truly one of a kind.

    Oh my goodness!! She’s SO ADORABLE! I can’t decide if the ball and bat is cuter (Hello, Daddy!) or if the baby doll is better (must be ‘cuz Emily’s so good at mommying). These are so cute. Happy birthday also to Mr. Petty! He’s a sweetie. 🙂

    ADORE the pictures!!!  Thanks for posting!!!

  4. She looks so adorable! And what a cute little cake! 🙂 Micah keeps talking about “apootatoo” which means, “Happy Birthday” (not sure how it became apootatoo, ha ha). It’s so much fun when they start getting old enough to be really excited and into it!
