Being a Granny

Twenty-seven years ago today I became a granny when my sweet Katie was born. Then, exactly 4 weeks later, my equally sweet Ashley was born, making me the happiest granny. I had the privilege of taking care of them when their moms went back to work/school  right until the girls started school. In Katie's case much longer. Off and on through the years she lived with us causing us a few gray hair but mostly being her own lovely self. There was a ten year gap before another grandchild was born     ( a grandson this time) then 5 years before the last two were born ( the grands that currently live with their family together in our house.


           My DH's hair was still very dark in those days but I see his beard has some gray.


That's Ashley on the left and Kate in the blue jumper.   My two lovelies.  I think they were 5 in this photo.

I don't post pics of my grands very often but today seemed like the right day to do so.

Happy Birthday, Katie!

Happy start of the week!      Granny Marigold
