Sincerely 'Fro Me to You...



Meet Alice.
She was one heck of a grandma.
She really new how to spoil her grandkids!
She is the only person who allowed me to suck my thumb whenever!
She could whip up some delicious biscuits & gravy.
She made the sweetest tea ever.
And she let us drink as much tea as we wanted!
She was so petite and drove the longest car I've ever seen.
She always had Avon cold-cream for her beautiful hands.
I loved taking the rollers out of her hair after she went to the beauty salon.
She always had Wonder Bread in her bread drawer...yum!
She would only put 3 inches of water in the tub so we wouldn't drown!
She insisted on cutting our bangs all the time & they were always crooked!
I would always lay on the opposite end of the couch and take naps with her....feet to feet.
She loved to play the same slot machine at the local casino!
Some of the best times at her house, as a child and an adult, were on the front porch.
Here she is sharing that memory with my oldest daughter, sweet tea & Grandma's love, on the front porch!
She is missed. very. much.

Aww. You reminded me of all the wonderful grandparents in my life. And the wonderful grandparents my kids have. Nothing beats a glass of homemade sweet tea either! :D

My grandma used to have me take the rollers out of her hair too!

In fact, I also got to paint her fingernails and toenails...any color I wanted, usually blue or purple (yuck) and I would paint all the way up to the knuckle!

She just let me though...as she sat their with her hair removal cream on her upper lip.

Ah, grandmas and memories.

What a sweet picture! She sounds like a wonderful person. My mom's mom made sweet tea SOOOO sweet a spoon would stand up in it.

Thanks for stopping by my site too. I turned 40 last month and my husband threw me a party. I had put together the slide show for all to enjoy. So that's how I ended up with all those fab-plaid photos! :-)
