Great Grandparents

Grandma made everyone new aprons!

4 generations of love!

We have all been anxiously waiting for my grandparents to come to town. It was a week full of wonderful memories! This is the first time that Tori got to meet her other great Grandma and Papaw. They could not be here when Tori was born, but they are the first people I called to let them know they had a new great grandbaby!

My grandparents hold a special place in my heart. They are both amazing Christian examples for me and my family. They always put others first and I have never heard them say negative things about anyone else. Grandma said to me this week that my Papaw would give the shirt off his back if someone needed it. They are both such loving people and would do anything for anyone. I have so many memories with my grandparents...playing Old Maid and my grandma letting me win, walks in the garden, swinging in the tire swing, swimming in the trash can (that's right...trash can), Thanksgiving at deer camp, hunting with Papaw, Christmas breaks, shopping, laughing, being part of the clean plate club, knitting lessons, golf cart rides to look at the Christmas lights, sewing lessons, and I am looking forward to many, many more! I love you both!

I just got a sewing machine, so Grandma gave me sewing lessons. We made an outfit and a dress for Tori.
