My Grammy turns 90.

This year, my Grammy turned 90 years old. To think of all of the things she has witnessed in those ninety years... I just can't even fathom it all. She is such a wonderful and amazing woman and I am so beyond lucky to call her my "Grammy".

Technically, her birthday was back in July. However, we were on our vacation when she turned the big 9-OH (we're awful people, I know). Thankfully, this weekend we finally got the chance to have a big party for her and celebrate her day of birth properly.

Peyton had her not-so-little cousins wrapped around her finger. They are such young gentlemen that they went to pick flowers with her {from that giant wildflower field in the background}, kick the football for her... and then go retrieve the football to do it all over again, etc. Needless to say, Peyton had a great time, haha.

Peyton helped Grammy open all of her presents, of course.

My (& Jen's) Uncle Dan and Aunt Janice came down for the party- all the way from New Hampshire! It's a shame that we only get to see him every few years or so, if that. However, he did invite us to stay up at his place sooo we may be taking him up on that offer soon!

My Grammy, Jen, Momma, and our Great Aunties. The Aunties come to stay with my Grammy this time of year and they laugh, and laugh, and laugh and play cards all day and night. They each come from different states: Florida, Texas, and Arizona. They celebrate Christmas on a Tuesday (in September) so they can all "be together for Christmas". They go to the "Cousin Crab Party" which is practically a family reunion and a crab feast combined into one. I love each and every one of them and I am so thankful to consider these happy, happy women members of my family.

I do believe that Grammy had a wonderful time at the party. There were numerous people there to celebrate with her and to enjoy her company, of course. There was tons and tons of food, which was nearly completely finished by the end of the night. Seriously, I didn't even get to take a picture of the appetizer set-up (I made the bacon-wrapped-brown-sugar weenies and some spinach artichoke dip in a bread bowl, yum!) before it was completely annihilated by the swarm of party-goers, haha. It was a super successful event and I am so glad we got to throw Grammy a birthday party full of laughter, catching up with family, and great food.

Grammy, you mean the world to all of us. I hope this year is filled with much joy and happiness. Here's to 90 more fabulous years! I love you.
