dear birthday girl,

sometimes…i catch a glimpse of you in pictures of gramma mary…when she was but a girlie like you are now…

always…when i look at this one…

something in her eyes

and when i’ya captured that happy birthday picture of you in the sweet little cap emma made…it was this picture that immediately sprang to mind…

the two of you…in your winter caps…

how she just loved christmas…just loved giving at christmas!

wouldn’t she be so proud of you?  her little “éclair”!

i know i am

you’re the very most amazing christmas surprise i ever got!

very sincerely,
me (your so-grateful-that-you’re-mine mama)

    What a beautiful, wonderful image of Grandma Norton! I had never seen this one before. Wow…Clairey really DOES resemble her (in this photo particularly)! Thanks so much for sharing, Darc! LOVES and HUGS to all.
