100 Day Celebration

We traveled to see the Canton Grimmlins and celebrate Joshua's 100 day birthday( or 100 years as Audrey told us!) In the Korean culture you celebrate 100 days because they feel if a baby made it 100 days it would live and be healthy. In our modern day it is hard to remember a time with infant mortality was high but this is a good reminder to give thanks to God for the blessings of this day. The rice cake is served and everyone must eat a piece to insure good luck for the baby Joshua. As a Southern Gal with a sweet tooth, it does not taste like a cake. It is rather like a dense gummy candy but not as sweet. I did take an Apple Pie from Ellijay to serve along with the cake so everyone was happy to have cake and pie.

He was wearing his Over Hauls...as we say in the mountains. I told Charles, that Granddaddy, the original Clifford would be happy to see his namesake wearing over alls.


Happy 100 Days Joshua Clifford Grimm.

With the Grandparents...

Okay, if you are not on cuteness overload....this will put you there. Oh those kissable cheeks.

We are so thankful for the little boy who will probably be our last grandchild.  We pray God will bless this young man with many healthy happy years.

I think I would have had to pretend to eat rice cake:), but for a grandchild I would probably do anything.

Oh Arlene, what a precious little one he is and so adorable in his 'over hauls'! His 100 Day celebration sounded fabulous. And I had to chuckle over Audrey saying it was 100 years! Did they like the sampler you created for him?
