My favorite memory is when NaNa was leaving she had to turn around, and say good-bye at least ten times & smiling all the way.  She's wave, blow a kiss, wave some more, yell bye, yell love you, blow kisses.  She was such a ham.  I was watching a video of her the other day and that lady turned around 8 times! LOL  Gotta love her!  My mom was the same way.

OMG!! I have so many great memories of my Nana, you know she lived to almost 101. She would tease us and say she was going to live to 100 but if we made her mad, she would live to 105. The best memories of her cooking, baking, and tending to her gardens until she was 90.

I always LOVE your flashback photos - that one of you and your godparents and aunt is PRICELESS! :)

Your Nana sounds like she was a wonderful person! My favorite memory of my grandmother was having her teach me how to play hearts and gin rummy when we were camping - it'd be just me and her in their camper. :) I was probably 7 or 8 at the time. :)

School Lunch - What Are You Packing?

my favorite memories of my grandmothers are our long walks talking about everything, and shopping. I learned my shopping skills from them.

Colette S said...

I love seeing your photos! I"m still amazed that you have them! I wish I had such memories.

I don't have a grandmother. Never knew or met her/them.


I am Harriet said...

I never met any of my grandmothers. I've heard the stories though.

Have a great Friday!

My Grandma is a Pistol! She always has been. My favorite memory of her is cooking. She is the best cook ever and she will feed anyone and everyone. she always says you never deny anyone food, thats her motto and mine too!

My favorite memories of my Grandma involve her wonderful cooking. She was a cook or "lunchroom lady" at an elementary school way back when they still cooked everything from scratch. I can remember being around 3 yrs. old and going to work with her. I sat in the school kitchen watching her cook and eating all the good food. I also remember being with her in her garden picking strawberries.

LOve the old photo! They all look so sharp and put-together! And how wonderful to have your Aunt Mitzi there for the baby shower!

Favorite memory of my grandma (dad's mom) would be her amazing baking and cooking...she would make the most amazing German pastries, cinnamon rolls, bread, chicken and dumplings...

Blessings & Aloha!

My favorite memory of my Grandma was, she always was drinking coffee, but setting her cup down and was always looking for it. We kids thought it was so funny that she was always misplacing her cup of coffee. Well now I am following in her footsteps... heehee.

I remember her in a little cabin in Maine...just being herself.

I can only remember her giving me hugs that could choke a bear! lol Love your pictures. That's when women dressed like ladies all the time.

I love that photo of you and Aunt Mitzi when you were a baby. Plus the current one of her, she looks good. Give her a hug for me. =)
As for a memory of my grandmother, I used to spend 2 weeks each summer with my grandparents each summer which was so cool because it was always so crowded at home. I remember sitting with grandma in her "Naugahide" chair watching Yankees baseball eating snacks... I don't even like baseball now.
