HAPPY BIRTHDAY!


MY GRAMMIE AND HER LITTLEST GRANDDAUGHTER
On July 2, 1964, when I was 15 years old, I and my family were in Crosby helping my Grandma Julia celebrate her birthday. In the midst of the celebration, the phone rang. It was my Uncle Don in Valley City, announcing that Grandma had a new granddaughter, born on her birthday. What could be more special than that? Little Anita Dawn soon made the trip to Crosby to visit her Grandma in person.
That was 1964 so that makes my little cousin Anita Dawn Munro Haug....43??? Yes, 43 today. Happy Birthday, Anita. My Grandma died in 1980, but I can wish her a Happy Birthday in Heaven. Happy Birthday, Grammie.

Your Grammie looks so proud. How lovely for your niece to have born on her birthday. I had my son on my aunt's birthday, and she was thrilled..
