Grandpa, Grandma and Buirlen
I was telling a friend the other day something I remember about my Grandma Shearer is that she made fudgesicles when we were little. She also makes awesome homemade grape juice and bread and butter pickles.
Visits to Grandpa and Grandma's always involved sitting around their kitchen table and playing games and in the summer we would have picnics at the Oasis, a portion of their farm with a pond and canoe, cabin, fire pit, and tree swing.
My Grandma made each of her grandkids a blanket when we were born. I think things like that are special and I still have mine. Well, Grandma is still at it and made a beautiful quilt for Buirlen.

I am so thankful for these people.
