Happy Birthday Miss Alyssa!

Alyssa, my oldest granddaughter, turned 18 om Thursday.




18!


She was just 10 - I swear...


Long legs, knobby knees, glasses, braces, her nose always in a book...interested in horses & cats. And books.

Now, she's a beauty. 18.

Graduates in May. Starts college in August. Away from home. Not far away...but far enough...

Long legs, contacts, beautiful straight teeth, her nose always perfectly made-up...interested in running, gymnastics, writing....and boys.


OK, B.O.Y. As in one.




Better be good to her...after all, these are no ordinary Grandparents he's dealing with...



Happy Birthday , Sweet Alyssa!
