I took some pictures of this beautiful little girl yesterday. As I told her parents, they are going to be in trouble in a few years. Just look at this face!

Ella & Elijah

These two cute kids are growing up! Look at these eyes!
Both Ella and Elijah's mom and dad play piano and Ella is really playing here....and she's only 5! She played several songs for me with both hands. I think she is definitely going to follow in her parents' footsteps!

Mary Fuksa (Bobi) March 24, 1916 - December 1, 2012

My grandma, known to us as Bobi (czech for Grandma), passed away the weekend before last. It has been a sad week but a good week. Bobi passed away after suffering from years of debilitating back pain and although her death was not unexpected, I still don't think any of us were really ready for it. We just got back into town after attending the funeral and a week spent with my grandpa and I feel that I should pay homage to her as I can - through pictures. Last year I decided to go through and scan some of my grandparents' photos and the photos below are from those. Most of them I had never seen before and I felt they helped me get to know Bobi a little better as a person rather than just a grandma.

Bobi and her sister, Emma. Apparently they used to dress up a lot. I especially love this photo.
My grandparents, Bobi and Dodi, before they were married (above) and on their wedding day (below). They have been married 72 years.
