026. Erica the Hun-ny

Today is granddaughter Erica’s 21st birthday.

I bet she’s out celebrating tonight, drinking and carousing and carrying on. I’m sure she’s up to no good, otherwise she’d have invited me along.  She knows how I like to party.  But that’s Erica for you, you know how she is.  You do?  So alright already, sometimes Grandma lies a little.

If I could only figure out a way to clone this child, my fortune would be made (and of course I would leave it all to you, that’s the kind of person I am).  Erica’s middle name is Joy and that’s what she brings us.

If you’re prepared for sunshine, let’s have a little visit with her as she was when she was 3 and 7 years old.



When she’s not helping look after her family, Erica is currently a business major at the University of Washington, a champion Irish dancer and she teaches Irish dance classes.   In her “spare time” she works at H & M Clothing Store in the University Village.

And here she is as a 21 year old.  Happy birthday, dear child.  Thank you for being alive.

    I had forgotten how much Erica looked like Teresa! What a doll. The videos are precious. These tributes are the best gift to your family ever. You are the best Grandma. 365 blogs will not be enough! I always knew you were funny and clever, but you are really a natural story teller. So much fun!!

    I had missed the video when I first read this. Erica looked just like Teresa at that age. I love that little lisp. She is a beautiful girl.
