Wistful Wednesday: Sweet Sixteen Savannah!

Someone is sweet sixteen today..she is the one that made us Grandparents for the very first time.  She was such a tiny little thing with frog legs she captured our hearts immediately.  I say frogs legs because Trica had a caesarian section and when the nurse brought Savannah out..her legs were not straight..she kept pulling her knees up..kinda like a frog.

This is one of my favorite photos of her and Chance.

She was throwing Chance water during a trip to Voyageurs National Park in 2006.

She still likes to throw water for Chance!  2011 on Cass Lake.

I heard she is taking her drivers test.  I also heard she wants her own car.  My goodness children grow up fast nowadays:)

  6. All grandchild birthdays are lovely, but there is something special about Sweet Sixteen! Happy Birthday, Savannah.

  7. This is a big Birthday for Savannah. I'm sure you took lots of pictures and gave her lots of hugs. My youngest Grandson turned 10 two days ago. He was born on my Birthday so we share. He's too far away for me to hug, so hug Savannah again for me.

  8. The do grow up fast. Blade will be in the 5th grade this year...almost Middle School, then they change...I can see him changing now. But I still get hugs so I'm hoping all my life I will 'still get hugs".

    Happy Birthday, Savannah!
