Happy Birthday Grandma Lidster

Grady's grandma turned 84 today! She is one of the greatest ladies I know, I am so lucky to have her in my life too. Not only has she raised four of her own children, she was instrumental in the upbringing of Grady and Alex. She (and grandpa too) are the kind of grandparents every kid dreams about. They went on trips, always had nequick and candy on hand, saw them almost daily, took them to "wishdonalds" and burger king, constantly dote on them and believe these two boys can do no wrong.
Grandma also is exteremely talented. She is a beautiful painter and the proof is in the pictures. She was 81 when Grady and I were married and still painted a portrait for us. She can also weave baskets out of pine needles, sew like only few can do (she made my wedding dress) and is incredible at keeping keepsakes safe and has made an invaluable scrapbook for each of her grandchildren. She gave me Grady's scrapbook at my wedding shower. It had every picture he ever drew for her, air plane ticket stubs, every newspaper clipping from his birth announcement to our wedding announcement, pictures upon pictures, school ribbons, birthday cards, cashed cheques she wrote him for $2.00 for mowing their get the picture; it was Grady's life history.
She is a truly amazing woman. Her entire family loves her. Happy Birthday Grandma!
