I was looking through these pictures on my brother-in-law Ryan's website and thought I'd talk about my cutest Grams. Most people call her Grandma Thomas, but to me and Meg she is just Grams. When we were little and we had to stay home because we were sick, my Grams would take the day off from work (she was the TLC teacher at Cyprus High for a very long time) and take care of us. She would always make us "special shakes" and make sure that we were comfortable and well taken care of.

Also, Meg and I can chat a lot, if you didn't know that already, but when we were little it was seriously non-stop. I'm sure it got old after a while, but she was always so attentive. She always made us feel so very important...and I love her for that.

She served a mission in Denver when Meg and I were in 1st Grade, and Meg and I were devastated. She was our very best friend, and life without her was just no fun. Cute Grams. I love her so much.

She also loves to tell me and Meg, very lovingly, that we each only have half of a brain. And we are Dingbats. Good word, if I do say so myself.

Well, there's a little reminiscing for you. And here are some pictures from her Birthday Party August of 2007. I LOVE MY GRAMS! (Oh, and my children will call her "Hilda the Great" as she will be their Great Grandma and her name is Hilda)

Grams and the cute cake my Mom got her!

Chels Lyn! What a fabulous post! I am so proud of our Grams. I'm glad she's become a crazy in her old age. I hope I am just like her. Love you!
