My grandchildren and I created another memory this past weekend. The nice thing about being born a couple days before Memorial Day weekend, is that your birthday surprises continue over the long holiday weekend. There was a party on my birthday, and then our family rented a boat, planted flowers, and my grandson helped me mulch the flower beds. (Gardening is a party to me.)
Instead of my grandsons giving me a birthday card from the store, my daughter-in-law created a unique "What I Know About Grandma" card. She asked my two grandsons, Paul (age 4) and James (age 2), questions, and their answers were my birthday card (below).
WHAT I KNOW ABOUT GRANDMA
What is your Grandma's name?
Paul: Suzanne James: Grandma
How old is she?
Paul: I don't know.
What does she do?
Paul: Grandma plays with me. And Grandma likes to do the sprinkler with me.
James: She goes like this...(and then he dances).
What's her favorite food?
Paul: Soup James: Candy
What's her favorite color?
Paul: Pink James: Purple
What's her favorite movie?

James: "Dora the Explorer"
What does she like to sing?

Paul: Dr. Al. He pushes on Grandma back.
James: The circus.
What is the best thing about Grandma?
Paul: Grandma loves me and she bakes with me.
James: I love Grandma.
Happy Birthday, Grandma! We love you!
