oh i love these! is that first one your sweet neice? adorable!

Pam D said...

Just wonderful! Isn't it funny that when we look in the mirror, we ALWAYS see a girl? What is it about mirrors? I look in mine every day, and I think I look young and thin. And then I have to take a pic of myself, or someone else takes one, and I am always SHOCKED. Your sweet grandma-girl looks just as sweet and young as all of the rest of them....
