We love our Granny Liz

Yesterday we got a great treat my grandmother, Granny Liz, came to town for the day. She had to see the doctor and then we got to eat lunch and enjoy a pedicure, which we both really look forward to!! I absolutely adore this woman she is 85 (almost 86 if you ask her) and smart, strong, generous, great story teller, an amazing cook, and she loves each of us with all her heart. She has battled cancer for 3 years now, so she's also a fighter! She lives in Kingsland Texas and since I can remember her house has been my favorite place to go in the summer. She literally lives on Lake LBJ, and growing up we spent a lot of time at the Purdys' house. Granny Liz taught us all about the stars and she has this AMAZING closet of dress up clothes that even in High School we would spend hours laughing and coming up with some very creative outfits:). She has helped teach a lot of water skiers in her day and every summer I got to go spend a week with her and my grandad (PP). I have some of the most amazing memories as a child looking up at the stars, sleeping on the dock, skiing, playing with my friend Stacey, and having an absolute blast. I looked forward to that week every year. It is so neat that now my children get to go to the lake and experience all the wonderful things that I did growing up. Ryan is always asking me when we're going to go to the lake and Ally loves seeing her "GLiz". We had a wonderful visit yesterday, and it saddens me that I don't get to see her more often. Granny Liz I love you! See you soon:)

So sweet, you need to print that out so she can read it. I wish we could have been there to see her.

I love your new page layout, I've been reading on google reader so it may not be new, but I love it!

I bet if I looked hard enough I could find some pics of some of us in some of those clothes you mentioned.... On second thought maybe I'll leave those hidden :)

Oh, she is the sweetest lady, and I miss her! We did have such crazy dress up times, too. Who knew sequins were so very cool? I did not know about her cancer, and I will be praying for such an amazing little lady. Rum cake, skiing, dancing...such great memories. Love you! And tell her I love her, too!
