Celebrating Her

This week my grandmother turned ninety years old. Today we held a celebration of her wonderful life so far! Her friends and family gathered round to show their love for this special lady.

My mom and aunt put together a continuous slide show of her from infancy to now. All of the adventures, babies and life she has lived....

She spent time soaking up the attention, enjoying friends, and some banter with Summer:)
These are her three babies all grown up...
Friends from all stages of her life were present...
and children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and one tiny great great grandchild waiting to be born (the very first!) (with Mama on R on end)

I think the most special part was watching her with my grandpa's sister. They have known each other since they were little girls. They went to elementary school together. Grandma grew up to marry her brother and now Grandpa has been gone for 10 years. They were drawn to each other. They held hands and talked for the longest time. They laughed and smiled and I would say almost clung to each other. Can you imagine all they have seen in their lifetime? They mentioned that almost everyone they knew now was passed on. How weird it was to be one of the only ones left. It was beautiful to watch these two friends, these two sister in laws.

Happy Birthday Grandma. We Love You So Much! We hope your day was Special!
