Jubee is Twelve!

Happy Birthday to Jubee! I wanted a granddaughter. I wanted a granddaughter really bad. One that I could put ribbons in her dark, curly hair and make frilly little dresses for her to wear. She was born twelve years ago today, just as I requested.
The photo above is my mother's favorite. She was about three years old and was having a ball in the back yard blowing enormous bubbles. I have many memories with Jubee. She was the first of my grandchildren to share weekly Grandma days. Our routine usually involved going up to the hospital to have lunch with Grandmama in the cafeteria where the volunteer ladies would all ooh and ahh over her beautiful dark hair and eyes. Sometimes we would visit Athena at work. We also had fun times baking cookies and playing with Grandpa, who by the way was putty in her hands from day one.

She is growing into a lovely, smart young woman. I know that I can always count on her when I need a model for a photography experiment. She is also my Holiday Shopping Buddy. Last year she even reluctantly helped with my Festivus Celebration. Of all my kids, she is the one who can roll her eyes in the largest circle when I suggest something crazy.

Jubee, we love you and hope that you have a wonderful birthday. We will see you for dinner and hugs tonight!


You asked for it, Eris! I also added a few more over at the Shooting Blog.This was taken while having lunch at the hospital with Grandmama. She had been warned to quit playing around on the chair. Sure enough she got her cute little head stuck in the chair. All of the little lady volunteers thought I was an awful Grandma because I wouldn't get her out before I took her picture. The chair had to be tipped upside down to free her!

Happy Birthday, Jubee! I miss your little dinner plate skull, but you are fun the hang with now, so it's ok.

What no picture of her head stuck in the chair on Grandma Tuesday?!

I've erased all the comments I've started. I don't know what to say.

Happy Birthday sweetheart!
