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.
Sunday night October 9 (can you see that the chocolate cupcakes form a one and a three?)
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!
Happy Birthday to you! Here you are with your family at the Mellow Mushroom tonight.
And without the corny balloon birthday hat. 10-6-2016

Yes, you get absolutely soaked to the skin.
Got the four together this afternoon to wish you a very happy birthday. They were bike riding around the cul de sac but took a moment to pose. You are a good mom! Xxoo Love your MIL

My father bought this puzzle in 1976. He’s the one who got Mark saying Sacramento at age 2, when you’d ask him “what’s the capital of California?”
This summer Mark took his family to see ten more state capitals/ capitols.
The handcrafted wood puzzle was missing New York and Lake Ontario. For years! Missing puzzle pieces is such a bummer. I’m not sure why I waited so long to see if I could get replacements.
Wk, I just received the hand cut replacement pieces and although the wood is a bit thinner these days and the color brighter, it is wonderful to have the puzzle complete again.
Besides New York is my birth state (yes, I grew up in the Garden State- New Joisey)
Thank you Puzzle People Michael and Pat Smith of Philo, California for completing the puzzle once again, 40 years later.
