Happy Birthday to Hubby & Sis

Happy Birthday to my hubby and his twin sister.  Nobody’s telling their age but I think they both look great.  Carryl was born a whole half hour before Darryl.  And as babies, the story goes that he was always stealing her bottle.

There’s two to wash, two to dry;
There’s two who argue, two who cry….
There’s two to kiss, two to hug;
And best of all, there’s two to love!

Grandma’s Vase

Today’s photo is a red glass vase that my Grandpa gave my Grandma many, many years ago.  It was the last gift he gave her before he passed away.  She cherished it, my Mom cherished it and now I will.  And someday my daughter and her daughter will as well.

Look close enough and you can see my reflection in the face of the vase.  Namaste’

To All Moms Everywhere

Happy 12th, Miss Belle!

Today is our granddaughter’s 12th birthday and I honestly can’t figure out where all the time went.  I remember vividly the night she was born, though.  Her Dad and brother had just taken off in the boat to go fishing when Mommy went into labor.  I called the neighbor at the end of the inlet in hopes he could wave them down before they got out onto the lake.  Thank God he did.  As soon as they got back we all left for the hospital and it was only a few hours later that Annabelle was born.  I have to say that watching your daughter have a baby is rather nerve-racking – at least for me.  But through the years, even though I have never lived in the same state as they do, I have been blessed to spend some beautiful moments with Annabelle and her brother.  So Happy Birthday, Miss Belle.  Grammy and Gramps love you to the moon and back!  (These are some of my favorites of her, however, I probably have about 200 more).
