Feeling her on my heart (and knowing she had a candy bowl =) I went "calling" on my Grandmother.
I asked her why in the world she had gone sledding with us when she was an "old lady"?!
To which she very emphatically replied, "I'm NOT old!"
I then asked, "Well, if you aren't old, what are you doing with those "CRACKS IN YOUR FACE?"
Needless to say I left her house WITHOUT any candy that day. ;-)
(But she tells me she HAD to smile about what I said after I left! =)
~This picture was taken the last time we got to be with GG...November 2010.
GG with our Kimberly (12), Sarah (9), Noah (6), Elijah (2), and Mary (7 weeks old).~
My Grandmother has always been ornery--the life of the party. One day when I was small I was talking to my Moma and didn't say something correctly. When My Moma corrected me she told me that we all had to use, "Proper Grammer!"
I was confused and asked her, "Whoever heard tell of a PROPER GRANDMOTHER?!?" =D

~Happy Birthday, Grandmother~
Today a sweet lady I call "Grandmother" by name
Turns 90, My Moma's Mother, I'm here to proclaim her "fame"! =)
Her food is always DELICIOUS--She's a GREAT cook!
She cooks from memory, not from a cookbook!
I love to go to her house and eat a ton
Beans and cornbread, green beans,...Mac and Cheese...anyone?
There is always lots of sweets and candy at her place
She's young at heart in spite of those "CRACKS in her face!" =)
When the Great Grandkids came along, she became "G.G." (Great Grandmother)
Now my kids LOVE going to her house just as much as me.
G.G. spoils us and gives us lots of treats
She's the sweetest lady you could ever meet!
GG's a Southern gal--a Belle from Tennessee
She's one of the hardest workers...she challenges me.
If you call GG and she doesn't answer her phone,
She's tending to her flowers, with them she doesn't feel "alone."
Most of what I enjoy today as a child of the King,
Came because Pop Pop and GG gave Jesus EVERYTHING!
She prays for her children, 10 G. kids, and 33 G. Grand ones by name.
Wishing her Happy Birthday from HERE feels so lame!
I miss my sweet Grandmother and wish I lived nearer
But our family would probably "LOVE HER TO DEATH"...I FEAR! =D
When I think of someone of whom I'd like to be...
It's no movie star, It's a sweet lady whom we call GG!
