Good party, it is interesting when you become grandma at these things...it is no longer you doing it, not in charge anymore!! BUT opens you up to take pics and hold a baby or chase a toddler...so, no complaints.
So here is the birthday girl, my dgd#1 Adriana. 7 years old on Weds...this is the only pic I have of her alone and looking at me. I made her stop for it. I have noticed that the past year or so, I only have 'action' pics or where she is looking at something else. So, this is my Missy. We used to be so close, like bff's....but now she has moved on...and I am chopped chicken liver. Well, sometimes we get to 'hang out' and it is like old times. siiiiiiiigh, she is also my Caramel...We decided on nicknames based on personality...she is Chocolate Covered Sea Salt Caramel...cuz sometimes she is sweet, sometimes she is salty. You know, the 7 going on 14 thing. siiiiiiigh
Now, there are some members of the family who call her Cobra, for Cobra Ky..siiiigh, just because she is a bit feisty and "on her own program". Feisty is good, my dd was a strong willed child and grew up to be a wonderful, strong woman.
