Happy Birthday Great Grandma

Today we'd like to take a moment to recognize a wonderful woman who is celebrating a very special birthday!
Travis' grandma had four kids within four years (3 years and 9 months to be exact - talk about an impressive feat of motherhood!) and she now has 11 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren (almost 11).  You want to hear what makes her extra special?  At our wedding, my sister told Travis' Grandma that she doesn't have a grandma anymore as our grandma had just died, and Travis' Grandma did not hesitate to say "Well, I'll be your grandma!" and she most certainly has taken Leanne in as an additional grandchild.  She sends her cards and gifts just as if she was one of her own grandchildren and my sister regards her as her own grandma.  It's really heartwarming.

So Great Grandma, here's a little message from Merryn and Josie in celebration of YOU:

We hope you have a wonderful birthday filled with love, laughter, family, and friends!


  1. Happy Birthday Great Grandma! So sweet of her to tell Leanne she'll be her Grandma. I hope she can see this cute video!

  2. Beautiful daughters!
    bless them!
