Remember yesterday when I briefly mentioned my dream Grandma (Sydney's Great Grandma) and how we had a very important reason behind our trip to Wisconsin. Yup, this amazing woman was the reason we made our trip!
She had a HUGE birthday! I mean how often do you get to see someone you love turn 100?!?
There was a surprise party being thrown for her the next week, whoch makes NO SENSE to me, but we got to spend her actual birthday having some quality time with her, and showing her just how loved she truly is in our family. In all honesty, she didn't want a huge party, so something intimate on her birthday was the perfect fit!
I mean how adorable is this woman?!? She may be 100, but her eye sight is the only thing slowing her down at all. She still lives on her own and takes car of herself and her cat for the most part. I am in awe of her, and what she has lived through! She has so many stories, and she will sit and tell you each and every one of them when you give her a little time. She loves to remember the past and share it.
I love this woman with all of my heart! I am so happy that we made the trip! I would do it all over again just to see her for a few hours and show her how much we love her. Hopefully we will have another party with her next year!
