My oldest granddaughter becomes a woman.

Cailey was my first granddaughter and I still think of her as an infant. This is largely because she grew up on the East Coast after I had moved to the West; I simply haven't had the chance to see her that often.

But recent circomstances have brought Cailey and her mother, my daughter, Dorothy, to the Greater Phoenix Area. And that meant she was here for her 18th birthday!

The party was held at my other daughter, Jenny's, home in Chandler.

The kids received a popcorn machine for Christmas, and made sure to welcome all new visitors with a trayful.

Members of our extended family, Aunt Barbara and Uncle Peter, arrived to help Cailey celebrate.

Dominic's other favorite Christmas present is a motorized tractor and trailer. Dominic is, amazingly, a terrific driver.

Meanwhile, some of Jimmy's pals had come over to watch the game. From L2R: T.J., Jimmy, Walter, and Steven.

After a delicious dinner of pizza, it was cake time!

From L2R: Cailey's mom Dottie; Cailey; Aunt Barbara; cousins Zach and Dominc, Uncle John, and John's friend Amy.

My oldest grandson, Zach, and youngest grandson, Dominic.
