Grandma acts silly sometimes. But only when no one but us kids are around.

I like it when Grandma makes brownies.

When I was little, I loved it when I fell asleep and she would pick me up and carry me to bed and cover me up and kiss me goodnight.

Grandma did pat a cake with me and itsy bitsy spider and when I got older, she let me drive her car.

Grandma looks pretty when shes dressed up and she smells good.

I love how Grandma wants to make sure that I remember our family history.

Sometimes Grandma puts a plastic tablecloth on the living room floor and then orders pizza and we have a picnic and watch a DVD.

Grandma likes Bubble Guppies and Curious George and she watches baseball too.

At Grandma's house I find things that belonged to my Dad/Mom when he/she was a kid.

Sometimes Grandma comes to my games and cheers for my team.

When other kids are embarrassed by their grandma's I never am.

I like her garden and I like how hard she works to make it pretty.

Grandma has two toy drawers filled with little toys that are there for all us kids to play with when come over.

When a tornado came thru, Grandma put us in the bathtub and she got in with us and said prayers.

Grandma cries sometimes at Mass.


And Then One Day


I miss my Grandma.

I wish she were still here so that I could tell her how much I love her and tell her how much she taught me and how I know now that family is everything and without it, we are just passing thru life.

I wish I could share my life with her now that Im older and understand things better.

I wish she could have lived forever.....

Thank you, Grandma
