Happy 80th Birthday Grandma Julie

My mom, Juliana and I went to visit my Grandma for her birthday today.  She knew that my mom was coming, but it was a last minute decision for Juliana and I to go – so she had a fun birthday surprise when we showed up at her house.  My Grandma is pretty awesome – she does all of that important grandma stuff like giving lots of hugs and kisses and she bakes the best cookies.  She has 4 children, 17 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren.  I was her first grandchild and Juliana is named for her.

I started collecting and scanning old pictures from her house a few years ago.  They are saved in my “eventual family history project folder” and are untouched at this point.  I thought this would be a good time to post a few of my favorites.

Four generations – My Great-Grandmother, Grandma Julie, my Mom and me (1972).  Grandma Julie with several of her Grandchildren in 1978 – I am in the pink checked dress and the cheeser smile.

 

And some more recent pictures including a new 4 generation photo with Juliana.

    Looking at the younger Cass and you now it is amazing how much you look alike. The smile on a younger Grandma Julie and you guys is also pretty amazing. I am glad you were able to have another 4 generation photo. That is a wonderful experience to share.
