Sad day for me... my 90 year old grandmother passed away this morning...

  8. I loved to hear her say my name... i'll miss that the most

  9. she had the coolest toys to play with when i was a kid

  10. she still mowed her own lawn at 75

  11. she loved me even though I gave her a cat for her 70th birthday

Frosting sandwiches? Tell me about them.

We just went through a loss in our family. Billy's Granny was an awesome woman and we learned so much from her. She will be missed....

Celebrate your Grandma!!

Frosting sandwiches? Did you ever try one?

I'd been avoiding your blog because I had a sad week here and knew I would burst into tears reading about your grandma.... Even though things are better here, I still cried for your fabulous grandma. Anyone who has the b***s to put frosting on bread and call it a sandwich is tops in my book. :)
