Happy Birthday, Gramps!

81 years ago, the greatest man in the whole wide world was born:

My grandpa is one heckuva guy. Funny. Impatient. Selfless. Impatient. Ready to go. Ready to leave. Good at golf. Resilient. Oh, and did I mention "impatient"? ;)

Full of classic one liners, too. My favorite of late?

"Let's DO something...even if it's WRONG!" (This said while we all turned in circles at ValleyFair, trying to decide where to go first...)

One week...exactly ONE WEEK after having a heart attack, he was "all time pitcher" in our annual "Us vs. Them" softball game.

"Us" won. See:

Oh, and a side note. My grandpa played for the Yankee's farm team back in the '40's. At least that's what he told that cop last month (and snuck out of a ticket!). Ahem.

Love ya, gramps!

Happy Birthday!

(PS...y'all will want to stay tuned for a little video treat I have for you later. Hilarious. Longish, but worth sticking it out to the end!)


  1. Happy Birthday to your Gramps! Sounds a lot like my grandpa (at least the impatient part). :) Grandpas are the best!

  2. God bless Gramps!!
    He sounds amazing, and perhaps a little impatient. LOL

  3. Happy Birthday!! I never knew either of my grandfathers - such a blessing for you to be able to know him so well!

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!
