Birthdays, links and dolls

Today is my Grandma's 91st birthday. She was born in 1918.

This picture with her father was taken 80 years ago (can you imagine?!)
at my Aunt Ione's wedding.

This is my Grandmother and her two older sisters, Ione and Millicent.
My grandma is on the right. I love this photo- the style of it is amazing.

My mom sent me this pic from their birthday celebration today. I got my eye color from my Grandma. Our eyes are really light and change colors. Sometimes blue, grey, or green.

Happy Birthday Grandma!

And links... Just 3 left!

Caleb and Ashton are in Seattle and will be, after tonight, heading back down the coast towards home! Only 3 days left! Considering what we started with, he's practically home!
The tour has been going really well and they've added 1000 new fans on myspace in 5 weeks.

Awhile ago, my friend Christina taught some of us girls to make these cute dolls. They are made out of a man's white athletic sock and some stuffing with yarn for hair. I decided to make my doll for Stella. I gave her blonde wavy hair and brown button eyes. Matching dresses was the final touch. Thanks for taking the pics Kaya!

I am IN LOVE with Stella's hair and hair coloring. I wish my daughters had that color of hair. It's absolutely beautiful!

And, I agree with Arlene, those old pics are pretty cool. Pretty cool too that you still have them after all these years.
