My Grandma's Hands

I was looking at my hands the other day and thought, "I remember when Mom's hands looked like this.  Shoot, I remember when Grandma's hands looked like this!"  I also remember a time when I thought "Wow, Mom's hands look like Grandma's".  I decided it would be nice to do a 4 generation picture of hands of the girls in my family (I have a thing for pictures of hands - each time one of the kids was born, we did a family hand picture to hang on the wall) Since I knew we'd see Grandma for Easter, I decided it would be a good time to do it.

I decided to do a more traditional 4 generation picture, too.
