WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE!!! oops!! My Bad…ha-ha

There is a little confusion that has come to my attention in the last couple of days, and I think it is important to clear it up!

Who ARE Grammie and Grampie and WHERE are Tootsie’s Parents???

Well…I am happy to say that I can clear up this little mystery once and for all in one fell swoop!

Grammie and Grampie…ARE my Mom and Dad! The day they became grandparents…they ditched their real names and became known as Grampie and Grammie. That is what they, and everyone around them calls them…even the staff at their store! If you call them by their real names…My kids have no idea who you are talking about…and sometimes they don’t even answer! Grampie and Grammie are very special.


This man is my Dad. His real name is Glen…but…prefers to be known as Grampie. He has many faces to him.


The silly and fun little flirty face!..


The Playful imaginative face…


The goofy great sense of humor face…


This is the face he’s wearing right now as he reads this…(glad I am three hours away right now…ha ha…love you Daddy?) ha ha ha!


His gentle face…(He is ‘Busy’s’ favorite playmate…)


He is My Dad…he is a hard working mechanic, creative and fun man…and I am so glad my kids have a Grampie like him.




This lady is my Mom. Her real name is Iris. She, like my dad has a name she prefers. Grammie. It is one of her claims to fame! She also has several faces…


She has her at the farm casual side…notice the long legs she has! hee hee


Her adventurous and fun side! “run Grammie RUN!” (no worries…she can’t get away…her legs are not too long) ha ha


Her ‘working’ side…


Her professional face…this is one heck of a business woman!


This is my Mom. She is the strongest woman I know. If there is something that needs doing and no one to help…she finds a way. She is creative, smart, classy, eloquent and very talented. I am thankful that she is who she is and that my kids can have someone so admirable to call Grammie.


I hope that this post will clear up any confusion as to where my parents are and who Grammie and Grampie are!!!

I will see you tomorrow for Fertilizer Friday!!!

Until Next Time…Happy Reading!

*)*)*) to my special fan club!!! Children grow up and mirror the example they have been set by those who they admire most. I am so glad my kids are getting a good view of those who are positive and strong!

Tootsie, I knew exactly who Grammie and Grampie are and they look like awesome parents and grandparents too. My late MIL is still referred to as Grammie and now I'm Grammie to our grandson (in Alberta!). Our daughter wanted me to be called that when our grandson was born because of her affection for her Grammie. (and Nana was taken) Great pictures and your kids are just sweet. Blessings, Pamela

Love the pictures of you and the certainly can't deny your daughter..she's a spit image of you!
How old are your sons? Better start putting a big old stick by that front chase the swooning girls away in a few years!

Loved all the pictures of Grammie and Grampie..I was blessed with wonderful in-laws and they've been gone since 1998 and 2000 and I still think of them daily. They were not only good to me but everybody else that came into their lives. I learned so much from my dear MIL..
