happy 90th birthday, nana!

Today is my Nana Anne's 90th birthday and I was fortunate enough to be able to take the day off and travel to Vancouver Island to share in her celebration.

The sun was shining and best of all, it was one of her good days.

She recognized just about everyone who attended, and those she didn't immediately recognize, mentioned their name and then you could see the twinkle in her eye as that was all the prompt that was required.

I saw relatives and old family friends...some whom I hadn't seen in many, many years.

By the time the party was over, Nana was pretty pooped, so we gathered all the wonderful flowers and cards she had received and took her back to her room for a well deserved nap.

My mom and Auntie Fern, along with our friend Missy, put together a terrific gathering.

Happy Birthday, Nana!! I love you very much. Your first born grandchild, Deb.

Ooooh, my gosh! Happy Birthday, NANA!!! I feel like she's "my" nana, too. I'm sending her a big hug, like I know only she can give. That's such an AWESOME picture of you both, Deb... xoxo, Shari
