Hats off to Granny and Her 99 Years of Living!

Birthdays are a big deal at any age. But when you turn 97, 98, or 99, it certainly warrants an enormous celebration. Having done a pioneer party and an American Idol party, we were looking for another idea that fit our loving, hilarious, sweet, silly, Granny. One thing she is famous for, (besides her quilts!) is taking pictures with hats and other things (even a lampshade) on her head. I will post those pictures sometime. (Mom, can you email them to me?) So we decided that everyone would wear a hat in honor of Granny and that we did. Granny laughed it up, even if at 99, she is just now starting to feel her age. She hasn't been at her best lately and her comment... "I guess I am just getting old." Too funny. Prayers for granny and praises for a lovely 99th birthday.

I have SO enjoyed joining in on all of Granny's birthday parties!! She seems like such a fun, lovely person. Will pray for her that she won't "feel her age" so much.

Happy Birthday, Granny!!

Oh how I want to meet her!!! I remember your post last year. She is the Granny I never had. And still don't. Sigh.

I want to come meet Granny.

Oh, how I love the Granny posts, you know! Every time I see her picture it reminds me of the picture in my childhood photo albums of her holding me in the nursery at church. I am crazy impressed by her turning 99!!! My own grandmothers lived to be 92 and 95, and I still miss them even though they've been gone for over 10 years now. Happy Happy Birthday, Granny! I hope there are still many more to come.

Miss you all and can't wait to see you!
