Dear Monica:

I totally agree with all the other commentors. Samuel is PRECIOUS! Aunt Joanie & I SO enjoyed seeing him and all of you again recently.

Aunt Joanie & I were together yesterday & thinking about our little birthday boy.

I know you had a wonderful birthday celebration for him.
Thanks for the pics thus far.

Love you all, Grandma
