This is our granddaughter Katie!! She is going to be turning 13 this week!!
I thought it would make a great Monday Memory. I remember the
year that she was born. It was a very bad year for me. I felt so
bad that year. I was about 48 years old. She was so pretty just like
all of the granddaughters had been, of course!! After I got through that
bad time then it was more fun to have a new granddaughter. Her birthday
comes about the same time as her grandpa's. That means that hubby is
going to be having a birthday this week also. He is not at all close to 13 though...
thank goodness!! Neither one of us would like to be 13
Katie is a beautiful young lady that loves the computer and computer games. She will
one day be a lovely grown woman. Time has a way of taking care of that!!

13 is such a big number for girls! I can't remember my 13th birthday but I do remember my 14th! How funny! And grandchildren are just wonderful. They add so much to our lives! I have two but see you have many more than that! Happy Birthday to your Miss Katie!

Mine is up! Have a wonderful Monday.

I certainly hope Mike isn't 13....there are laws against that girlfriend! (ha!) Did you check out my Diva's Diary yet? Love the flip flop tag. I'm knee deep in tomatoes right now.

Awwww...she's so cute! I wouldn't want to be 13 again, either. I hope she has a wonderful birthday.

Have a GREAT week!

What a sweety. Nice that you can peg it to a memory. 13 is the age when I felt like I'd grown up. Little did I know!

Cute picture!

Happy Birthday, Katie! Thirteen is such an important age for a young girl, although, like you, I do not want to be that age anymore!

How nice! She was such a cutie! And guess what? I'm having a birthday this week too!! Friday, the 1st!

Terry said...

Dear Flip Flop... I thought I better hop in here and say Happy Birthday to that sweet liitle lady whose picture you have here.

Thirteen!! !! She is just still a baby but don't tell her that!

I, for one wouldn't mind being 13 again if only for a little time because that would mean that I was still back in my beloved Manitoba again. Those six short years that we spent there when my dad was in the airforce were the happiest years in my life!!

I am very envious of that Saija and Leo I am telling you!! Ha!

Have a good night Sandy.. Love Terry

Sandy............would't I just love to be 13 again (well maybe not!) they have such a busy life now and grow up so very fast. Your grand daughter was a beautiful baby and what a cute photo.
Happy birthday to Sandy's grand daughter and happy birthday to your hubby too!

I so very much enjoyed reading your blessing too. I know a little more about my new friend now. :o)

see you again soon

Morning Sandy!! Oh Katie! I love her name. We were so close to naming our daughter Katherine and calling her Katie. It's so Irish, and so pretty for a girl, don't you think?

I didn't get to visit blogs yesterday much, so I wanted to make sure I dropped by first thing this morning.

As you know, my blog is 'titled' thanks for the memories, so I really enjoy peoples' memories. A lot. That to me is what life is all about....memories, good and bad.

In fact, I put up a memory just this morning...I'm not part of Monday memories - I kinda tend to do them much more often than once a week. LOL

Anyway, Happy Birthday dear Katie! And Mike too real soon!!!!

Hope they both have grand celebrations.

(Happy Tuesday to you Sandy!!)
