My maternal grandmother’s cousin, Dorothy, passed away last night at 102 years old.

June 7, 1909 – August 8, 2011

Throughout her 102 years she travelled much. Laughed much. Loved much.

She loved dogs, especially her Chows…

Rascal and Riggs came to visit in late June ~ she seemed to perk up a bit as she pet Rascal…

The children were so sweet at her bedside…

This has got to be one of the sweetest, most tender photos I have ever seen…

Cuz, we loved hearing all about your wonderful travels over the years, but now you’re on your way to a destination more beautiful than anywhere you’ve ever been before.

We love you!

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

It wasn’t an easy task, but we got little Dorothy to the yellow brick road this morning!

She apparently woke up on the wrong side of the bed {could’ve had something to do with a twister!?!} and didn’t want braids and complained of the costume itching…

But, she pulled it together and made the cutest little Dorothy Gale!

Complete with a green Toto…

Checking out a rainbow?

She’s sporting a little yellow rosette, too, to symbolize the yellow brick road!

And those shoes….

…there’s no place like {HOME}!

Meanwhile, Holden was parading around as a candy corn at his preschool…


Click your heels three times, relax and fantasize a little on this gorgeous {85*} Thursday!
