grandma's 86th

October 26, 2010


So last Thursday my mom and I flew to Pittsburgh to celebrate my Grandma's 86th birthday! The last time we saw each other was when she came to visit in February, but it has been awhile since I've been out to PA. I think it meant a lot to her that my mom and I were there and she kept saying, "I can't believe you all are making such a fuss over my birthday." I think it's important, though, to celebrate birthdays no matter what age you are. Sometime we don't take the time to let people know how much their lives mean to us. My mom, my aunt, and I made a big dinner for her and we got a cake from a bakery she likes! It was a short trip but totally worth it!


Happy Birthday Grandma Nana!

  15. Awww she's beautiful! What a sweet thing to do!
    My grandmother is the same way but she is always so grateful. Last time she hugged me for like five minutes and wouldn't let me go at all! She doesn't give quick hugs and I love that.

  37. I love that! it reminds me of a trip my whole family took (when I say whole family, I mean all the aunts and uncles and cousins) to kansas to surprise my grandma for her birthday. we parked all the cars behind the garage and house so she wouldn't see them when she got home from work. we all sat quietly on the kitchen floor waiting for her to come in. She was SOOO surprised! I'm sure we all remember that day.

  41. Beautiful trip to your grandma! That cake looks delish and I bet she loved the flowers on it. I know my grandma would have.

    That is so sweet you went out of state for her birthday. You are so right that birthdays are special and it is so important to let our loved ones know we care for them. I was very close to my grandma and she lived to be 99. I wish your grandma that same! She looks great.
