Another Girls' Night
A Chick Chat with some of Grandma Ison's posterity
The Wilson Girl cousins came up from Utah
Some stayed at Grandma's home
They made sure she got some dinner
as they waited for local girls to arrive
Lexie and Tyrel made a quickie, early appearance and got to meet some Utah cousins
Shegay is checking in with Grandma
The love these granddaughters show their grandma touches my heart
Jana, Shegay, Kevin (honorary chick, special invite!)
plus Grandma, back for another snack
I see Grandpa, looking on, from the wall
At one point in the evening, Grandma said to me, "Daddy's gone."
Yes he is, I replied. What do you think he is doing right now?
"I have NO idea," she exclaimed.
Do you think he is watching us right now? I asked
"Too busy," she replied
That could be . . . because we never heard him fuss at us to get to bed!
And we were up til @2 am
I've missed getting the "chocolate toast" pictures downloaded
But you can be sure we toasted the rest of you....and we missed you!
Oh..there they are...the next two pics below
Some granddaughters helped prompt grandma's memory
by bringing pictures and notes on their family
She loved pouring over those sheets
We went around the circle of beautiful spirits
hearing a catch-up summary of whats been happening in each life
New pregnancy announcement, husband graduating, expanding insurance sales, brainstorming business ideas, busy mommas with their chicklets
Such variety of interests, talents, strengths, contributions, challenges
All bringing their love to Grandma
Crazy busy printing campaign materials, art classes and interest in illustrating children's books
She was the springboard for the gathering:
With an exciting and wide eyed new move to North Carolina
she wanted to come see Grandma before the adventure
Well, if you are coming up......let's all gather!
To have ALL her sisters join and gather......
Oh my, it seems like a miracle to me
And I loved it!
And so did their Grandma
"I didn't know you were coming!" she exclaimed again and again
So pleased, she was
New missionary, new travel schedule, new horizons

Thank you for the sacrifices you made to create this cozy gathering
Give us a goofy moment, you girls!
Loving on Grandma!
