What a girl!....My namesake granddaughter.

This is me with McCartney and her little sister, Elizabeth....

Here she is after a swim in the good ole summertime!


Yesterday, I got a call from my soon to be 9 year old granddaughter, McCartney (that is my maiden name) and she wanted to tell me about her upcoming birthday PARTY! She proceeded to tell me that it was going to be a SLUMBER PARTY with 5 girlfriends in attendance. She said she was sending ME an invitation. I said," You don't want your old grandma there, do you?" She said," Oh , Mimi, yes I do.....you are so much fun and so girly girl!".........Of course, I said with delight that I would be there! How sweet was that! I realize that I had better enjoy my popularity with her now, because the TEEN YEARS are fast approaching and it will not ALWAYS be that way!
The day McCartney was born, my son came out to announce that she would have my maiden name......what a surprise and a delight! She and I have from that moment been soulmates. We look alike and we act alike and we also THINK alike! She has for as long as she was able to dial a phone, called me and we can chat forever about nothing! She is so precious to me as are ALL of my grandchildren. God is so good to BLESS us with grandchildren and I have often wished I had had THEM first! Being a grandparent is so much fun and alot less stressful than being a parent, that is for sure.
I hope the admiration is mutual and somehow I THINK it is.........<><

Thanks for coming by my blog. I was pleased with my Tarheels yesterday. It seems like forever since they won anything. I have a friend I grew up with in GA Tech's athletic dept, and I'm sure he wasn't too thrilled either. Your grandgirls are beautiful! Elizabeth is a family name from my mother's side too, but unfortunately, I didn't get it. McCartney is a pretty girl's name. I like Mimilee too. Isn't Cindy McCain a beautiful woman? It's a shame John didn't win b/c I haven't seen a prettier lady since Lady Di. Oh well, I hope Obama does a good job since he worked so hard for it!

I SO agree with you on being a grandparent. I have a "perfect" grandson but look forward to a girl one day. Your pictures are great!! What an honor to be invited to the party. You have to post on that :)

Just a question to see if we have another connection - is McCartney's mothers' name Andrea by any chance?

You have me choked up before I had my coffee! What a great mimi you are to your grandchildren, the memories you are creating will live forever on in their hearts!! The material things come and go, but it the memories we have growing up that helps us become who we are as we grow older. When life gets the upper hand and knocks us down a bit, it is the love and memories of our love ones that pick us right back up.
Thank you for sharing~

No, I do not know Andrea personally, but I am good friends with her sister, Mary Jane.

Those girls are as beautiful as their grandmother!!

And I love that your granddaughter's name is your maiden name; I have always wanted to use my mom's maiden name in some way should (my husband and) I be blessed with children some day.
