Luke Meets His Great Grandma (A Surprise Visit)

Recently, my Uncle Jesse came out to help Daddy complete work on installing a new heating and air unit in their home.  And remember my mom and dad live next door?  Well when Uncle Jesse came, he brought a pleasant surprise with Grandma!  She's my only living grandparent.  I hadn't seen her since last Thanksgiving when we went to Alabama.

We always tell her to come see us.  However, we know it's hard for her to make the 4 hour trip one way at her age.  She's soon to be 93!  But she did it!  She surprised us all...especially my daddy (her son).  Daddy stops by the mail box to pick up their mail as he comes in every afternoon and he picks up our mail as well and brings it to our back door and says hi to the kids.   Well, Grandma was at my house then, so we "hid her" in the living room on the piano bench.  When he came in, we sent him in the living room telling him to go look on my piano at what I got today.  :)  And there she sat...all 5 feet of her!   He was totally (and pleasantly) surprised!

This was the first time Grandma and Luke had met.  They hit it off just fine.  Luke was so gentle with her and she enjoyed him! 

I was thrilled to get these pics of them.

She does so well for her age and I think she looks great at her age!

We get to spend Thanksgiving again this year with her.  And then, I'll be one of those crazy ones out bright and early on Black Friday.  Alot of us ladies have a great time though and always get great deals.  We all meet up for lunch and eventually go home exhausted having put in a full day, but then we always end up doing it all again the next year!  :)

And speaking of Thanksgiving, I wish you all a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving with your families!

Hugs and Blessings,
~ Tammy ~
