My Sweet Grandma

My sweet Grandma came to town today. We were so excited, we hadn't seen her in a couple of years. Time goes by so quickly, and though we make plans to go visit her, something always comes up. She is such a sweet kind lady....I adore her.
My sister Rhonda, Grandma and myself.
My nephew Logan, Dustin, Arvene, and Brad.
Brad, Grandma and Dustin.
Logan. Grandma and Bailee.
My Grandma and her Husband Arvene. They married each other 8 years ago. I love that they are holding hands....they adore each other.
Have a wonderful weekend.
xxoo Valarie
I forgot a couple of things: Grandma is 90, and Arvene is 92. I find this so unbelievable. They are both so vibrant and young. Also, my Mom told the story of the time we all headed to Nebraska for a visit, and when we arrived she realized that she had forgotten us girls church dresses. Her and Dad went out that Saturday Night, and we stayed with Grandma. When Mom and Dad got home....Grandma had sewn us all new dresses. She made a pattern out of newspaper, and used sweet fabric she had on hand. My Mom could not believe it. Yep, that's my Grandma....super talented.

You and your sister are beautiful! What a nice thing to have the time to spend with your grandma... do take time to indulge in visits more often time just seems to slip through our fingers. Before we know it a year has gone by! Hugs, Diane

You and your sister look so much alike. You are both beautiful girls and your Grandmother is darling.

I loved seeing the pictures of you and your family. I hope your son continues to get better every day.
