Double Special! - Sunday Snapshot


This is a very special picture. When we went to visit my Mom a few weeks back, she said, "I found this dress that your grandmother had made for a life size doll I had over 40 years ago. I was thinking that it may fit Anna Grace." Sure, enough! It fit her thin, very tall body, perfectly!

I know I'm a bit biased, but the fact that our beautiful Chinese Princess is wearing something that my beloved grandmother made for my Mom over 40 years ago, makes it "Double Special", as Anna Grace said!

Right about now, my grandmother must be wearing a great big smile as she looks down upon us from Heaven.

Ni Hao Y'all

That is sooo sweet. I am glad this dress is being worn by a treasured little girl, born in your heart.

And I am doubly sure that Grandma is smiling.

Big smile? Grandma is positivly GLOWING!! Frankly - I'm pretty much glowing too - but AG will always have a special place in my heart - she may not know it - but she (and you O) helped us more than you'll ever know!

hugs - aus and co.
