What 100 looks like!

Her cake (there were 2 of these).

Grandma Jean.

Grandma and me - photo courtesy of another very spry resident who use to be a professional photographer (some things you just can't do much, me!).
No cards yet, but I'm back from Grandmother's 100th birthday celebration in Kansas and we had a grand time. Her party was suppose to be for 2 hours and lasted for almost 4. I had taken her shopping the day before for some new earrings and saw to her hair appointment and manicure and she wore me out. She lives in her own apartment in an assisted living community and about 50 of those folks attended and over 20 other relatives (mostly grand nieces and nephews) made the 3-4 hour trip up from Oklahoma to celebrate with her also. She wore her tiara that says Birthday Queen all day long. When it was over she was tired but oh, so happy.
