The Angels... oh my...

Here's John...Liz and Nick...{John, in a rare moment...usually, he has a favorite 'sign', he gives the camera...oh dear....}
Ahh...The two Goddess's... {oops...3 .....Sorry Scarlett!}oh my...The Lizard...and Me.......{she cracks me up...} We always wind up doing our hair, the same way... without knowing it...{it makes her sooo mad! We think...a lot...alike...} ah, but no more... my hair..{she calls it 'Mermaid Hair'... whatever that is...} is not getting whacked! She said, "That's o.k.... I have a lot more years left, to let my hair grow..."... She, is... her Mother's Daughter....Damn...
Ahhh...Three Generations... Pattie...{Fern Hill}... Nichole...and Steph...{Stephanie Brandenburg Studios} Liz used to babysit, Nichole... She Loves all of the Girls... Angels....
Bud and Renate...{a.k.a. The Love Birds...} We have known them forever...They have never missed any event with the Kids... They are Wonderful People...We Love Them....
Carolyn A. What can I say....One of the most Giving People, I know... She is an Angel...no doubt.....
Nick, and his Gal Pals...Ashley and Kaley! They are Antique Hounds! How Cool are They!!!
Oh My Gosh...Kristi... She and Liz go Way Back....Kristi and Liz started going to Gold Rush with me, when they were around 8.... We'd roll out, about 2 a.m.... they would pile on a bed of pillows, in the cab of the old Ford...They amazed everyone, at the Shows... They worked their tails off... and we all had Amazing Meals, at Michael's...Those Girls worked as hard as any Adult...and I treated them, that way...They earned their stripes...Kristi, will always be my 'Second Daughter'... 
Ahhh...Liz's little, Best Pal, Jaelynn... and her Sweet, Mom...Elizabeth...
Nick's Sweet Family.... Good Folk! It was Great seeing them... The Babies, are Growing So Fast!!!
Brittany, and her Darling..Josiah... He is a whirlwind...and... should be, at 2! Liz has known Brittany, forever... what a Sweet Girl....


Ahhh...Gayle...She is one of the most amazing Women I know... Lord, the Mountains she has climbed...We Love Her So....She always shined at Liz...They hit it off...right away...when Liz was quite young... it's a 'Soul' thing...

Barb H. {Sisters' Garden and Bloom...} What can I say about Barb... She is an amazing, caring Soul...Beautiful...We Love Her...Much...
 Dale F..... He and Liz, have grown very close, the last few years...I thanked him for coming, and said how much Liz appreciated him, being here...he looked me in the eye...and said, he wouldn't have missed it, for the World....{I tear up, just thinking about it...} Dale, wouldn't have missed it, for the World... That's how Dale is...
 Sweet Katie! It seems like, just yesterday, when the Girls, were hanging out...Mall Shoppin'.... Teen Agers.... what happened... Oh My... Now, Katie is a Mom... Liz, will soon, be a Mom... and we are discussing what these Babies, are to call me...I'm not loving 'Grandma'... I'm thinking.... 'Me Ma'... or, Bud suggested 'Baba'...I don't know...When I think 'Grandma'...I think 'rocking chair'...I'm not ready for a rockin' chair...{well...I'm ready... I just can't afford to sit!}Pal, Gayle, said she couldn't wait, to be called Grandma... Hey... I want to hang out, and show the world, to a young spirit...yes...experience life, with them...{that's my Dad, in me...} We'll figure it out...
Hope You Dance... all of Ya...

Hey Wanda...
I never knew my Grandmothers... ...maybe, that's part, of why, I find it so strange...If I would have known them... I might feel different...

I was lucky enough at one time to have five of them. So Grandma was a work I used often. Had three great grandmas and two grandmas!

Barb- You'll love whatever they call you. When I got off work over Christmas and came home, my Grandson was sitting in the kitchen eating a cookie and all 3 years of him said " Hello, Grandma" like he sits there all the time, instead of 3 or 4 times a year. Suddenly, I forgot my tired feet and sore back and just wanted to play....

Grandchildren seem to make up their own names for their grandparents! lol I have a friend whose granddaughter has always called her "Precious". It was a long time before we figured out what she was saying and even longer why. . . My granddaughter, on her own, has always called me Nana. Not a word we had ever used, but it is fine with me!
