Celebrating 91

Gamie turned an astounding 91 last week. 

Samantha and I were thrilled to be able to celebrate with her on our visit up to my homeland of South Jersey this weekend (which I'll write more about tomorrow).  It was a very sweet gathering of my mom and Ray, my Aunt Kathy, Uncle Joe and cousin Aaron, at the Assisted Living residence where my grandmother lives.  

Four generations in the room.  

I'm not sure if Gamie truly knew who Sammi and I were, but she did seem to be having a really good day, enjoying the moment, watching Samantha play, making a wish and blowing out the candles.

I wonder what she wished for...   

Great grandmother and great granddaughter. 

Aunt Kathy made a beautiful and delicious cake.
Good to the last crumb!
Samantha, growling and saying, "Ahhhhh!  So scary!"  Cracked herself up!

Mom and Gamie.
