Happy Birthday, Grandma!!!

Today is MY grandma's birthday.........she is 87 years old. Is that cool or what?! :)

I feel it is such a privilege to have my grandma with me for this long. Such a blessing!
She lives over on the Northern Californian Coast......we love to visit her often.
My kids love having a GREAT-grandma. They just call her "Grandma" because I do.
I have mentioned it before.....but she is the reason I started this blog. I know she checks my blog pretty regularly......and is probably the only one :)....and I feel bad sometimes that a week....or a month goes by, with no posts. I do the best I can. Sometimes it is all you can do to LIVE your life, much less blog about it. :)
In the meantime..........
I have some photos to share.....they are old.........because even though I have a great recent photo that someone was able to sneak and take......I think she would get "mad" at me if I post it :)
So, here is the past:

My grandma with her class.....she is the one on the far right.

I bet Clare is enjoying these dresses! :)

My grandma and her two sisters. She is the middle gal.

The three sisters, grandma is sitting in the dark dress.

My grandma......cute!
My Grandma and Grandpa.
I am sorry, Grandma........I got a card out to mail to you.....but it did not get in the mail in time.
So, this is it....your card! :)
God bless you now and always!
We all love you........all eight of us!!!!
With love,

Thank you for sharing the pictures! Your grandma is so lovely, and those dresses are delightful. Anne and I were just saying that next time we get together we're going to have to dress up 40's and try to get some authentic-looking snapshots.

Seeing the picture of your grandparents together stirred some vague memories. I think Anne told me the story of how they met several years ago. You ought to share it sometime; I remember that it was very cute and very sweet.
