Today is my "Gran's" birthday AND her anniversary. (She got married on her 18th birthday to my "Gramp"!)
This photo was taken on her wedding day/birthday!

A little about my Gran.
She LOVES her kids, grandkids, and great grandkids. Children melt her heart, and bring her so much joy. She is the shuffleboard QUEEN and can beat ANYONE... I wouldn't challenge her if I were you. She is recovering from a major back surgery and I know it kills her to not be able to carry the babies... but she can hold and squeeze them when they are on her lap - she glows! She is beautiful on the inside and the outside.
A little about my "Gramp". He loves the babies too, and knows how to make them laugh. He can talk to them in a donald duck voice that is awesome, and gives great nicknames. He loves old cars, driving, restoring, and talking about them. He also builds and flys remote control airplanes. In addition to all of this, he plays harmonica, the violin and sings karaoke (he was in the finals for "American Idol" on his cruise!)

I am so blessed to have these wonderful people in my life, they are the best.
Happy Birthday and Anniversary!
I love you - and Liam loves you too!

Gran put these photos together to put on one of the tables at my wedding. The first photo is my parents, the middle is gran and gramp, and the third is grans parents.

These photos were taken at their place in Eugene, OR while we were there visiting.

Everyone asks where Liam gets his beautiful blue eyes, and my immediate thought is from his daddy... but - gran and gramp also have stunning blue eyes, so - maybe from them???

A round of applause for Great Gran

With Great Gran and G-link

just kickin back

smiles all around
