A Frosty Day... & ... What a gift I have!!!

On Thursday night we had a very quick and icy snow storm come through, but what a pretty picture it made for us the next morning!!!Jasper even had icicles hanging from his face. But he LOVES the snow and cold!!!
The fog was very dense and so cold, we had to "listen" for the bus this morning we couldn't see it.
But the best part of my day was this...my gift!! This is my 98 yoa Grandma King. She is in home here in town and I go once a week and do her hair. I don't do it as well as a professional would but it makes her feel better and it's good for Ashley and I to get to spend time with her.
Bless her heart, I have to tell her who I am almost every week and she thinks Ashley is a boy, but she loves on her and hugs her and gives her candy. Ash just loves Grandma King to death, she always has. Grandma is the oldest in our family and Ashley is the youngest, the fourth generation, so I feel lucky to have them both in my life and able to share some time together even if Grandma doesn't remember each time she is thrilled to have company and some time with us, Ashley and I will remember it and it is a gift for me each week that we get to go visit and get a hairdo!!! Love you Grandma!!

Your g.ma is so cute, and how special you get to spend time with her each week. Love Ashley's Santa hat!
Jasper is such a pretty dog. I bet he does love the snow. My Olive O hates cold weather. She runs out to go potty, and runs as fast as she can back to the door. lol!
Merry Christmas Joleen!

Let me start by saying Grandma King is adorable! My daughter and I always spent time with my grandma - I used to do her hair too! Both my daughter and I cherish those memories to this day!
