Another November Birthday

It is Grandma Pesola’s birthday.

Grandma is my grandma. She’s my momma’s Momma. She is my grandpa’s wife. She is my daddy’s mother-in-law. She is my great grandma Bea’s daughter. She’s my auntie Lauri’s Mother. She’s my uncle Joe’s mother. (Momma says that I am being silly!)

She likes any type of rubber stamps. She stamps them all over papers and sometimes makes birthday cards out of them. Stamp! Stamp! Stamp! Stamp!

She likes to see us. Yesterday she went to MacDonald’s with us. We played and we ate. She likes to go to the mall and usually just walks. She babysits Georgie. Georgie is my younger cousin. (Audrey says his name is “Curious George”. He he he!)

She is learning to knit and she crochets. She made a pot holder out of knitting and crocheting. It looked nice! The outside of it was crocheted and the inside knitted. I wish I had a picture on it so I could put it on my blog.

Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday Dear Grandma!
Happy birthday to you!

Happy Birthday Grandma!

Can you guess how old she is? I guessed 21 and she said “that’s what I have been saying.”

P.S. I love you Grandma!

22 October

This is Great Grandma’s first birthday in heaven. She’s probably up in heaven running around picking golden flowers. Last year Great Grandma blew out the candle. The candle sang Happy Birthday.

Now it is Opa’s turn. He is my daddy’s daddy. Great Grandma and Opa were birthday twins. They were born on the same day but different years.
Opa means Grandpa in the Afrikaans (and German) language. We call him that so we wouldn’t get confused with my Grandpa Pesola and him. We were in Africa when I was born (and Daddy was born there too), and Mommy and Daddy just liked the word.
He and Daddy work in the same building, but not the same company. I think Opa is special because he is my Opa. He hugs and kisses us. He loves on us. He likes to go out to eat at McDonalds.

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy birthday dear Opa, Happy birthday to you!

I love you Opa!

Uncle Sam

Happy Birthday a day late, Uncle Sam.

I know how old you are! Should I tell everyone?

Happy Birthday to you, Happy birthday to you,

Happy birthday Uncle Sam, happy Birthday to you!

When Great Grandma was younger

I love Great Grandma Reble. I want to see if I can come up with more stories about her when she was younger.

Here is what Momma helped me find about when she was younger. Great Grandma was born on Tuesday, 22 October 1912

  • 6 January, 1912: New Mexico became the 47th state.
  • 14 February 1912: Arizona became part of the United States. It’s the 48th state and the last in the Contenential States.
  • 14 April 1912: Titanic sank on her way to New York. Lots of people died because there weren’t enough life rafts.
  • 16 April 1912: Harriet Quimby, “American’s First Lady of the Air”, was the first woman to fly across the English Channel. She died while flying in a plane soon after. I think her career only lasted ten months.
  • She lived during World War II and the Depression.
  • The President was William Howard Taft, right after Theodore Roosevelt. He was the 27th president. Woodrow Wilson was the 28th president.

Thank you for reading my blog. I’ll put more things in, maybe everyday, as I learn them.

A very special day, 9 September 2001

Andrea and her cake

Andrea and her brownie cake
Why is it a special day? It is Andrea’s birthday. Andrea is my sister. As the title says, her birthday is the 9th of September. She was born in 2001.

I think that Momma told Daddy to hide Andrea behind the door when she was born when I came to come to see her for the very first time. Momma thought that I would say “hi” to her before I wanted to see Andrea. But, I tricked her. I came in, looked around the room, and said “where is my baby sister?. So Daddy got her out from behind the door. I said “hi” to her and and then went to say “hi” to Momma.

I wrote a story about Andrea when she was four months old. I was four.


15 January, 2002

Andrea got shots. She got band-aids. She cried. We goed home.

Andrea Renee McGuire is my baby. She is four months old. When she was in Mommy’s tummy she came out. She was in a bubble.

Sleeping with her daddy. Andrea and her daddy are sleeping on the couch. Because they needed a rest.

I love my baby.

The end.

Andrea is special because I like to watch her dance. She makes up pretty dances. They are some of my favorite dances to watch. She likes playing Mommy and Daddy with me. I like how she talks to her babys; like Momma. She says special things to them, like “I love you” and she sings “Jesus loves me” and other songs. Even if she wasn’t my sister, I would still love her because she is beautiful. She is so sweet and nice.

I love you, Andrea. Happy 5th Birthday!
