My Granddaughter the Teenager

Good grief. It seems like it was just a day or two ago that I posted this on her 12th birthday. And now she is 13-a teenager! No way!! Last year she kind of liked seeing some pictures of her that she had never seen before. So Erin, here ya go--more embarrassing pictures. :)

This was her Birth Day. Here she is with Grandpa and brother Sam. She was now officially Erin Elizabeth. Up until that time, her brother had called her Kudos. Here she is 5 days later with her brother and both Grandmas at her Aunt Carol's wedding.Her first Christmas with her Daddy. Boy, Daddy looks a lot younger here. LOL.Mommy and Erin at her first Tailgate party. This was when Bowling Green played at Ohio State. I always loved this hat! So cute. She inherited her Aunt Karen's "Sarah Heartburn" expression.She was an Cleveland Indians fan from the beginning. I think this dress was a present from her "Uncle" John who works for the Indians. Moving day May 23, 1998. Here she is with her Daddy and Grandpa and Grandma Lawrence taking some of her first steps.

Moving on a couple of years. Still and Indians fan but now she has sprouted bunny ears. Love the expressions here. Make up your own caption.
All of her grandparents attended her Kindergarten Parents/Grandparents Day program. Grandpa Jim and Grandma Barbara. No good pictures with Grandpa Chuck though.
Both Grandmas.
Erin with her cousin, Noah, playing a duet.8 years old and discovering her love of sports.
A combination of a little sunburn and a very hot day at her softball All Star game. Age 9. Serious musician.
You ain't nothin' but a hound dog.
Cooking up a storm.
S'Mores. Yum!

My beautiful, delightful, funny, sweet, athletic, silly, loving, fun loving, amazing granddaughter. I love you, Erin. Happy 13th birthday. Hope I haven't embarrassed you too much with all these pictures.
