grandparents day

Grandparents Day is just around the corner.  Begun as a seemingly greeting card holiday in the United States, September 7 was set aside to honor grandparents beginning back in 1978.  The holiday’s concept was simple; our grandparents deserve our respect and our time.  It was suggested that we adopt grandparents to show older Americans that we value them.

I don’t know about you but my grandmothers both played a role in my love of dolls from sewing clothes to making food, I had great doll grannies.

The above photo links to an article from 2012 about a woman providing dolls to foster children.

Consider treating a senior citizen, your grandparent or anyone, to a special treat for Grandparent’s Day this year.  Maybe take them out to dinner?

Here are some dinner ideas for your dollies to make for their grannies.
