On Saturday, my Grammy turned 101.
Yes, you read that right One Hundred and One.
It was also the first time that Grammy meet Luke.
How amazing to meet your Great Grandma on her 101st birthday.
I will cherish that day for a long time.
Grammy and I with my 3 kids:
(Dressed in Pink, Grammy's favorite color, and Orange, in honor of the SF Giants!)
What do you get someone who turns 101?
Well, we got her some of her favorite roses, pink (her favorite color) and orange (in honor of the Giants playing in the World Series) Grammy is a HUGE sports fan and at 101, she still loves watching the Giants and 49ers play.
And, of course a balloon, because my girls don't think it's a birthday without balloons.
Last year, on her 100th birthday, we had a pretty big birthday bash.
But this year, we kept it more mellow.
Before dinnner, we had Grammy's favorite drink, Cranberry Vodka!
Cheers to 101 years!
If you have read about Grammy on my blog before, you know that her advice for a long life includes having a Cranberry Vodka every day for happy hour! I'll drink to that!
We had a lovely steak dinner & cupcakes/cake for dessert.
We sang Happy Birthday as the Giants won Game 3 of the World Series! (And, can we pause for a moment to mention the Giants sweeping the Tigers to win the World Series?!?!? YES!!!!)
Champange Toast to 101 years!
(She got to meet my sister's baby Jack for the first time also!)
Grammy now has 10 Great Grand Children. 5 girls & 5 boys.
Grammy definitely doesn't have the energy that she used to.
I can really see a decline in her from that last time we saw her a few months ago.
She still lives on her own (which I think is incredible!) But, her hearing is fading and her eyesight is getting really bad. When you are 101, your body just starts to shut down.
To be honest, I don't know if she will make it to 102, so I wanted to make sure I got a 4 Generations picture:
And, one with our whole family:
Happy 101st Birthday Grammy.
