Steve's mother, Mickie, is always coming up with new patterns and ideas to make for the girls. Her efforts are appreciated by me, a fellow sewing-kinda-girl, but spent on most others. Stephanie and Olivia do their fair share of smiling in the camera when a new outfit is brought out, because everyone knows Grandma will want a picture. These "winter coats" were made with double collars and one is even reversible. The red is very pretty and the lining is extra warm. It is doubtful they will get much use here in sunny Florida, but it was a loving gesture.
Is it just me or does it look like Olivia is catching up with Stephanie in her growth? They both love being with their family, and Grandpa is always ready and waiting for the next story or little anecdote. They love sharing tales of their travels and school.

They are going to cherish those memories with their grandparents forever. I knew all of my grandparents and great-grandparents and was always amazed at how many of my friends didn't have grandparents that were still living.
