Eleven Years in a Blink

Seems as if you were just making your entrance at dawn, not so very long ago.  I remember going to school after you were born and how excited everyone was for me.  I had just gotten my first digital camera so I could take your photo.

Happy 11th Birthday dear Granddaughter Anna Catherine.

Hope you like the photos I selected for your birthday post.  Except for the sock monkey and Henry, it is just YOU this year!

How about that?  love you,  your Grandma, FF Ruthie

      • The honey has been dispersed to my friends and neighbors. I’ve already gone through a quarter of mine while baking during The Visitation. Next year I’ll get more. 🙂

      • I know it is delicious. Must be a bit difficult to part with it, even if you love the recipients.
