Family Picnic 2010

Yesterday we went to the annual family picnic they hold at the nursing home where my Granny lives. Not everyone could make it this year, but there was Granny, my Mom, my Aunt Brenda and Uncle Mel, my hubby and myself. It was a beautiful day and we had a great visit with her. She is doing so well, we are so happy and thankful for that. She just had her 91st birthday this past April and she is still sharp as a tack and funny as always! We took her out for a stroll down the road and around the corner to see the new house that is being built. Her brother's house used to sit on that lot, and after he passed away and someone bought the property, the house burned down. So they tore the rest of the house down and they are building a brand new house on the lot. It's a big place and will look very different than Uncle George's old place. When we got back to the nursing home after our stroll we sat out in the shade for a bit and then we went in to listen to the entertainment. It was the same girl who sang last year and Granny didn't like her any better this year than she did last year! So she and I went and sat in her room and had a good visit. I was asked to make a card for a friend the other day. It was a last minute request for a get together she was going to for a 50th wedding anniversary. I made it the night I was watching Lee DeWyze get crowned as the next American Idol! It turned out pretty nice if I do say so myself! Chow for now Jacqui

So happy to hear you had such a nice day with your Granny. It's great to know she is doing so well-we should all be so lucky!
I love the card you made-it is gorgeous! The person who requested it must have been so happy.
Miss you!
