Grandpa

I'm awake now, Grandma!I had to get a new scanner so I thought I'd try it out today. This is a picture of my Grandpa when he was christened.
If you look close at the picture you can see that this is the slip under his dress. I don't know what ever happened to the dress but I have the slip. It is about a yard long with a 6 in waistband and it is cotton.
This is one of my favorite pictures of him. My brothers son and my daughter were born 5 weeks apart. This is Grandpa with both of them. He loved babies and would let his granddaughters (he had 10 grandchildren and my brother is the oldest and the only boy) and great granddaughter do anything they wanted! I remember us girls sitting around him on the back and arms of a chair combing his hair. The Vitalis was running down his face.My daughter was 4 when he and Grandma came up from Florida for the summer. She had him wrapped around her finger! Whenever she spent the night she made him go to bed when she did. We were never brats around Grandpa but he sure did spoil us with love! This picture of me, my ex and daughter with Grandma and Grandpa was taken that summer. He died a couple months later.
The outfit my daughter has on is green with a pink ladybug. My Grandma knitted it for her . What great memories I have!
