Grandma 86 Birthday

Cobbie69 suggested the theme Waiting as the weekly photo challenge.   What a great idea!

I went to the family archive and found this photo of my grandmother celebrating her 86th birthday.  The little cutie who is waiting in anticipation of a birthday song and a piece of cake is my niece.  She is now a lovely young lady, so this picture is recent but not that recent. Winking smile

I suspect my grandmother asked her to help blow out the candles.  I’m sure my niece could hardly wait for the song to finish.

In looking through the photo archive I found some additional photos for future posts.  I guess you can say my discovery also fits the theme because I can hardly wait to use them!

p. s. To Gerry aka  Cobbie69 – Thanks for a great theme suggestion!


I've always enjoyed writing and finally decided it was time to blog! As part of my profession I write every day, but I'm now trying to take the time to write creatively. My family and friends have been very encouraging as there is little that is written down in the way of a family chronicle. This is a favorite topic of mine! In addition to family history, I write about life, family, friends and faith. My husband is a full-time parent to our special needs daughter. I’ve explored this topic, too. I also enjoy music, crocheting, reading and relaxing with my family. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer!

    This is a great photo, you have some really nice old pictures, they are really atmospheric of the time they were taken. You have inspired me to ask my mum for any she has.
