15 Already? Wow!

Happy Birthday dear Michael,

I know you’ve grown taller since I saw you the end of June. I wish you a very happy new year, a wonderful first year of high school and in just 6 months you’ll get your permit! Oh my.  

Love you, FF Ruthie 

 

    Everyone loves to hold Michael

 

 

Celebrating a Special Birthday

Happy 16th Birthday Dear Anna,

I remember that early October morning, looking out the hospital window and watching the sun come up.  The day you were born.   I went to school and was so excited your arrival had made me a grandmother.  Everyone was happy for me at school. 

Good luck on your driving test.  You will do great I know.

2003 seems just a moment ago and now you’re becoming so grown up.  Proud of you and all you accomplish. I wish you every happiness, always. 

Love, FF Ruthie

There Aren’t Sufficient Adjectives

372CB8E2-7EFB-45F8-91C2-F1A897942045

Kind, generous, considerate, helpful, responsible, creative – a genuinely good person with a thoughtful heart…and I’m not just saying this cause I’m grandmother.

Proud of all you’ve accomplished and looking forward to your future!

Wishing you the happiest birthday, Anna Catherine. Fourteen years old? Wow. I remember the day you were born.

And don’t forget, you’re the one who made up the grandma name Froo Froo (Ruthie)

love you,

FF

Found this Sign in the Parking Lot

Thought it was a great idea.

Drivers today are so impatient.

It’s good to know that someone in front of you is learning how to drive.

A woman came out of the store and said.”Why is she taking a picture of my car?”

I told her I wanted to remember her good idea for when my grandchildren are learning to drive. I assured her I didn’t take her license plate number.

She said the sign on the car really works. We had a nice conversation about it.
