  42. My favorite birthday was my 40th because I finally got a Dallas Cowboys cake after 44 years (lifelong fan), it was all Cowboys themed and my 2 grandsons were decked out in their Cowboys jerseys and to top it off, the game was on and my Boys won!!!! Awesome birthday!!!!

  43. Susan 17 Aug, 2017

    I have 10 grandchildren. They call me on my birthday and sing to me. It fills my heart with happiness as I would prefer for them to call and sing or make a hand made card than anything they could try to buy me. I just love being a Nana 🙂

  44. I’d love to own o be if these pieces. I finally got my granddaughter after 2 boys. Thanks for the chance.

  45. Happy birthday, Nanahood!! Just celebrated my 66th birthday on July 31 and had an awesome evening of dinner and sitting on the deck with my family! Five of the grands were there so it was so perfect! It was a beautiful Minnesota evening, kids and adults enjoying each other and treasuring our time together!!

  46. Rosslyn 17 Aug, 2017

    I enjoy celebrating the birthdays of family and friends. Some have had a great year, some maybe not so good but a birthday seems to renew everyone. Happy Birthday ?!

  47. Tammy Damron 17 Aug, 2017

    My favorite birthday memory is my 50th birthday. My husband and I were in Hawaii (the trip was a gift for my birthday from my husband and children) on the island of a Oahu. We decided to go to the North Shore. We had heard about a place along the road where sea turtles would come up and some themselves on the sand. Sure enough we got there and there were four sea turtles feeding at the edge of the beach. I was in a sundress and flip flops and went running down to take a picture. When my flip flops hit that wet volcanic rock I went sliding right into the water. There was like a 6 foot drop off at the edge of the rock into the water and the waves just pulled me out and then would push me back in against the rock. I wouldn’t let go of my purse because the rental cart keys were in it along with my driver’s license and credit cards and we were going home the next day. My purse filled with water and weighed a ton in between that and the waves I could not get myself out on my own. Anyway to make a long story shorter the people on the beach had to form a human chain of 8 people to rescue me. I can laugh about it now but at the time I was so mortified.

    Happy birthday, Nanahood. Being Nana is awesome. My favorite childhood memory of my birthday was my grandfather coming for my birthday when I was 10. Being Nana and having my two sweet grandchildren give me lots of hugs and kisses always makes birthdays special!

  50. My favorite birthday was my 50th. My mother called to sing to me, as she has all the years of my life. My husband later surprised me with a birthday party, featuring many friends, both near and far away. I treasure the picture of me and my friends from that day, as I had never had all my friends (many of whom did not know each other) gathered around me, all in one place. My birthday cake was also special – it featured the image of a Canon camera – a nod to my favorite hobby. I wasn’t a Nana yet, as I am now, so my blessings have now been multiplied by 3! All future celebrations with those 3 sweet little faces are bound to be a joy, too!

  51. Being a Nana is wonderful and rewarding! And August is a great month. Aug. 11 is my birthday! I love being a Nana.

  52. My grandsons brought me a pillow that said best Nana ever I was so excited

  53. Darlene Lindsey 17 Aug, 2017

    My 50th birthday was the best ever! My entire family with the one grandson took me to Disney World!

  54. Michele 17 Aug, 2017

    Great site! I love being Nana! It’s truly changed my life! I even have honorary grandkids!

  55. Sarah 17 Aug, 2017

    Today was a good birthday memory for me. Dinner with Grand #3 and FaceTime with #1 &2!

  56. Sarah Lee 17 Aug, 2017

    My favorite birthday’s were spent with family and friends especially Martha!

  57. My favourite birthday just happened. On July 30 all three of my grand children were at a party for the two youngest. Only the 1 year old can’t say Nana yet but it will come. Being a Nana and there is an Aunty Lana is fun as my 3 yr old Alexis sometimes says the wrong name, Nana is my family name for grandmothers. My Mom was a Nana, her Mom a Nana etc and even my sister aren’t we so blessed to share our grand children’s lives and birthdays and just days! Nana

  58. Every Birthday is special but nothing beats celebrating our grands’ birthdays! Boy do they ????Presents!!

  59. Nancy 17 Aug, 2017
