This week we’ll take a look at my paternal grandparents.
Grandma and Grandad 2
This is a picture of Grandma when she was 16 and Granddad when he was 19. This was taken while they were dating. Aren’t they cute??

Another picture of them while they were dating or shortly after they were married.
Grandma Gilbert
This is my Grandma. She gave birth to two sets of identical twin boys. The first set of twins was born premature and one of them died when he was only a few days old. Grandma was the only woman of the house on their farm. She’s an AMAZING cook. Everything she makes is from scratch and no recipes used to make it.
This is my Granddad. He died while I was in middle school in the same house he was born in. He lived on this farm his entire life. I think he was the most patient man I have ever met. He had 4 granddaughters and he tolerated all of us climbing all over him, he even played dress up with us.
Here they are with the boys. My dad is one of the babies that grandma is holding.

This picture was taken for their 40th Anniversary. I love this picture of them both laughing.
