On Saturday,...  
...Mark & I are taking my Mom to the Big Island to visit my Grandmother for her 96th birthday! :) She has always been extremely sharp (and will remember things we promised to do last year and call us out on it) and though she's been living in an assisted living center for the past two years, prior to that she lived alone and used to run around chasing chickens out of her yard with a broomstick and carry burning hibachis around her garage. We've always said that she was probably going to outlive us all... :)

Here are a few photos of her with us in 2007 when we went to visit her for her 94th birthday, and last year when I visted her for my cousin's wedding in June. :) Please forgive the 2007 photo, I was about 15 pounds heavier then...:P



In 2007 when she turned 94!


In 2008 when we visited her for my cousin's wedding! :)


I can't wait to see her!! :)

You are all so beautiful, and you have obviously been blessed with lovely genes! Ever notice that you and she tilt your head the same way for pictures?

Awwww, Mark you are far too kind! My Mom and Grandma are definitely beautiful women, though. I'd love to look half as good as them when I'm their age. And I didn't notice the head tilt until you mentioned it! :D

I hope you all will have a great time at your Grandmother's birthday. Please say her happy birthday from me and that I wish her all the best! Big hugs to you, Sheri! I'm hoping we will get to see a "three generations photo 2009", I do love them.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on February 28th, 2009 04:28 pm (UTC)
I will definitely pass along your sweet birthday wishes to her, Sabine!! And I will more than likely try to take another photo with all three of us again (the question is if my grandma will let me!) ;) HUGS!!

Have a wonderful time! It should be great. I love those pictures, and it reminds me of meeting your mom - she's so cool and what a fabulous smile! You by the way, always look fabulous too, and 15 pounds either way doesn't change that!

Thanks SO MUCH, Robin!! My Mom still talks about the dinner with you and Megan at Tonys! :) And you're far too kind... those 15 should never have to come back to me again! :P I'm SO done with them! ;)
