Today would have been my Grammy’s 105th birthday! I have a lot of fond memories of my dad’s mom, including her molasses cookies (her cookie jar was always full!) and playing the card game Kings in the Corners with her. I still have her cookie jar, but I don’t remember how to play Kings in the Corner.
Mabel Austin Gibson was an artist and left behind many beautiful paintings. This is one of my favorites:
She loved to paint birch trees and autumn colors.
Here she is at my wedding, along with my dad.
Happy Birthday, Grammy!
