Those are delightful photos, Thisisme! The one of Alfred and Ruby melts my heart. Both children are beautiful and the birthday girl looks more like their older sister than their grandma! Happy Sunday, dear friend!

"Grandma" looks likes she's having the time of her life. That's what happens when you're surrounded by grandchildren and grown up daughters.
