Maria Con Su Bisabuela


Maria and I spent the morning together with my grandmother, Abuela. She is Maria's great-grandmother, bisabuela, Antonia.
They drew pictures and played with Maria's bunny figures. Abuela made tortillas de harina. Maria said, "Mommy, you should make tortillas like
these." I should.

    Paul & I want to get Amira down to Portland to visit with her great-grandma. Hopefully soon.

  5. Two beautiful examples of womankind! One is young, just learning to experience life. The other, is not-so-young, her life experiences worn on her sweet face like a badge of honor! What secrets are they sharing with one another? I wish I could know...

    This photo is definitely a keeper Natalie!

  10. Everyone else is talking about how sweet your girlies look together, but the REAL news is those homemade tortillas... Mmm mmm. We had a Hispanic family we were close with in our church growing up, and I'll never forget Nora's homemade jam-filled sopapillas. Damn, those were good.
