the big 9-5

Today is my grandmother’s 95th birthday. Wow, 95 years old! That’s pretty amazing.

I’m bummed because I had scanned a photo to post here today, but I’m not able to upload the file. Boo, hiss, grrrr! I sent the print to her with her birthday card, so now I don’t even have it anymore. It was a really cute photo of us together on the day before my wedding (back when she was a mere 85). Oh well. At least she got to see it! Here’s a photo of her about three years ago:

Craig and I called her earlier to give her our birthday wishes. She said, “You all sure are making a fuss about this,” but I knew that she was LOVING it. She has never been one to shy away from being the center of attention. πŸ™‚

Anyway, happy birthday to my Grandma Vera!

    Wonderful! She looks amazing. My grandmas made it to 93 and to just shy of 99. Hope your grandmother makes it all the way to 100 and beyond.

    Kelly I love senior citizens! They’re a hoot. You’re blessed to have your grandmother with you. My granny past away at 93 about 3 years ago. We miss her so much. Continue to honor and show her your love.

    Please, tell your grandma Happy 95th for me!! She’s a doll!

    My grandma is 94…and always ready for a celebration in her honor. She usually tells us all exactly what she wants to do…and probably tells us to get a move on too. What a hoot.

    Happy Birthday to YOUR grandma.
