Grandma's Love or Life On Mars

Oh Baby? Alien Baby?
Dillon Baby!

This is the first picture of my first grandchild. It has hung on the wall in my office since the day I brought it home from the doctor's office. I was going to be a grandma! I could not have been more thrilled.

I know it looks like an alien baby, but after examining it closely I found several things about him that looked just like me. Big head comes to mind.

Today he is a very handsome young man with a few too many girlfriends for Grandma's liking. We share a lot of interests and he has asked Santa for a camera. Now you know that pleases Grandma fM.

I had the pleasure of Dillon's and Wyatt's company for dinner out Friday night. Dillon was concerned that my friends that blog didn't have a picture of me wearing glasses so he drew one for me to post. footnoteMaven (the real thing) wearing glasses. And I did Smile for the Artist.

I do find the adoring barnyard
animals a little disconcerting.

Oh, he's been here for sometime and is the artist of Grandma in glasses.

I love the picture! :)

P.S. - Is your hair really that red?

While I do have auburn hair (I am a Scot after all), the crayon box did not hold my shade. So red it is!

I love it! I think it's lovely that Dillon felt that your readers needed a more "true to life" picture of you on your website. He's honing his artistic eye for future submissions of "Shades of the Departed."
