Two Birthday Girls

 On Friday we celebrated double birthdays! Mine and our oldest granddaughter Anne Marie. My gifts were this grandma mug.


It was filled with chocolates and a Hobby Lobby gift card. Plus flowers!


Here we are eating dinner. I'm not in this because I am the one snapping. The two youngest were sitting at another table.


Our granddaughter Dara in a contemplative mood.


Me with Jazz & Dara.


Phil & our son Mike seeing how tall each one is.


Jazz & Dara made kaleidoscopes from a craft kit, and decorated them. I managed to put the camera lens up to the eyepieces!





Anne Marie showed me this model online wearing the dress she is buying for prom.

Finally, the two birthday girls! She is so much taller than me now!

Happy Birthday to you, Ginny, and Anne Marie! I love that grandma coffee cup! And what a great gift the Hobby Lobby gift card is! And chocolates! The kaleidoscopes are cool, and very creative.

Happy birthday to you AND Anne Marie - she is taller Ginny. Your gifts were exactly right for you. They know you well.
Those kaleidoscopes were interesting - in the first photo I had no idea what it was.
When is the prom - that is quite a dress and she will look lovely in it.
That quote is funny - I think that is what got me old!
