At Grandma’s

When I’m 86 years old, I want to be able to live alone, take care of my home, drive, learn how to battle with Pokemon cards, sew costumes for my grandchildren, make dolls for them, teach them how to play old maid, bake crumb cakes, hold engaging conversations with my children, and have no fears.

My mother-in-law made these dresses based on Kaya, the American Girl doll.

She made matching dolls.

  1. That’s such a lovely blog!

  2. Too precious. Break my heart. Love her. And her dolls. And her costumes. What a treasure. We should all be so vibrant, talented, engaged. Prayers that she lives another 10 years and then some. Rock on, Grandma!

  3. What a great tribute to Grandma! I hope she also reads blogs! Your girls are indeed fortunate to have so many talented, interesting, and caring people in their lives!

    • Hi Jennifer, Thank you. Will make certain she sees this.

  4. Grandma is so smart–she made the dolls the same but slightly different, and the labels on the back are just perfect. As for mom in her matching American Indian outfit, well, that definitely gives a loving insight!
