Baby to Thirteen! How fast time flies.

Happy thirteenth birthday dear granddaughter Anna Catherine.Here is your birthday blogpost.

You are a lovely young woman.  You are the one who made us grandparents.

You are kind, thoughtful, responsible, generous and loving.  (Just a few adjectives to describe your character)

What a happy day when you were born.

Here you are brand new with your grandmothers- Ruthie and Marlene.  You gave us the name Froo Froo. So now we are Froo Froo Ruthie and Froo From Marlene to all the grandkids!

I remember my father singing I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles.
“Pretty bubbles in the air”

All I can hear in my head is the chorus, as I look up the song (1918)


Can you tell that WP is not letting me add a link to this post?
