Now Thats a Great Grandma

The day after Christmas we ventured to Fosston, MN to visit my Great Grandma Inga. I never get it right, but I believe she is 94.  Or 93.  Or 97. Lets just say she is over 40. My Audrey is named after Grandma Inga’s daughter Audrey. (My grandma Audrey) This picture gets me a bit […]

Now Thats a Big Sunflower

I couldn’t resist sharing a few pictures from our weekend. My niece Inga came to visit. Her and her mom (my sister) and her grandma (my mom) came to the cities for a girls/birthday/school shopping weekend.
