Happy Birthday Granny

On Saturday my Granny turned 80. My mom and her siblings threw a nice little party for her. My Granny has Alzheimers and lives in an assisted living community called Wentworth. On Saturday afternoon they had an open house and I guess a ton of people showed up. I didn't make it to the open house in time to see anyone but my mom said that lots of old friends and lots of family showed up to wish her happy birthday. After the open house we went to Johanna's Kitchen for dinner. It was yummy food and so much fun to see my extended family. It's always hard to visit with Granny because she doesn't remember anything anymore. It makes me so sad. Whenever I leave her after a visit I cry. I miss my Granny and it's so hard to see her not there. She looked so nice on Saturday though! Almost like her old self! She was beautiful and it was great to see her and everyone else.

Jarik's Birthday

Last Friday was Jarik's 7th Birthday. I can't believe he's been with us for 7 years. It was some rough going for a while when he was born. He was in the NICU for 10 days with lung problems. Those were the worst 10 days of my life. Luckily he made it through and he has no effects from that time at all. He is my little miracle! Anyway, we had a fun night. We had homemade pizza for dinner and then Grammy and Papa and Uncle Brandon and his kids came over for cake and ice cream. We did a big party last year and we are only doing parties every 2 years so it was a quiet one. It was really nice though. On Sunday we had dinner with my whole family and had more cake and ice cream for him then. I think he had a fun weekend and got some fun presents!
