If this frame could talk...

… it could tell you about the many earlier years of our grandchildren’s growth and the lives of the three as they moved into young adulthood.

Tri-fold frame with Sarah · Lori and Kevin · Neal

Today we received photos of our youngest granddaughter on the day of her graduation from high school. The only babies in our family now are the great-granddaughter.

Time does fly, and they do grow up so fast!

What Is A Magnolia?

Magnolia Bloom

Although I haven't seen the movie, I wanted to know where the title came from. I read enough about it to become totally confused. Apparently the writer and director Paul Thomas Anderson started to get ideas for Magnolia during the long editing period of Boogie Nights (1997), and he had the title of Magnolia in his head before he wrote the script. Anderson also did research on the magnolia tree and discovered a concept that eating the tree's bark helped cure cancer.
And best of all ...
It is a sweet little almost two-year-old great granddaughter whose parents are from Louisiana and Mississippi and chose her name to honor their native states — and we all call her Maggie.
