Great Grandma's Birthday!

Last month the kids had the opportunity to go and celebrate another birthday with great-grandma!  They love birthdays, and they love her, so it's a great mixture of their favorite things.  Their great-grandma has not been doing well this year.  She suffers from dementia, and she also fractured her hip a few months ago.  She spent awhile in the hospital and in a rehabilitation center, but she eventually was able to come back to her assisted-living facility.

When I was pregnant with Molly, we threw her a big surprise birthday party while we were all together at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  It was a great celebration and she went around the room hugging everyone and expressing her love.  I am sad the kids will not remember that grandma.  Good thing we took pictures ;)
