Happy Birthday Grandma C!

Yesterday was my Grandma's birthday. She is my mother's mother. My mom and her sisters have lunch together for each other's birthdays so on Saturday, we had a lunch for my grandma's birthday and also my cousin Lesa. Their birthdays are on the same day. It was a great day with just the girls. Hannah got to come with me and be one of the "big girls".

My grandma is so awesome! She is very fun l0ving and can be a tease. When we were growing up, you could be sure that you would get your allotted birthday spankings on your birthday. They were filled with love...but they hurt too! Haha! Grandma C. always sends a birthday card. She sends them to me, to my hubby, and to my kids. They are always dated and have a sweet message written by her. Slow learner that I am, I should have been saving these cards throughout my entire life but sadly, I can't say that I have. I do have most of them, though. These cards mean more to me now than most anything else. I know I won't be getting them from her forever and I cherish the ones I have. Love you Grandma Cook!!

Here is Grandma and Ryan on Christmas Eve. She was giving him a horsey-ride on her lap. He looks so serious about it but he was loving it and laughing!

I absolutely love this picture. Hannah went right up to Grandma and told her "Happy Birthday Grandma Cook!"
