Happy 87th Birthday Grandma Clara!



We enjoyed a nice outing with dinner at Chili's, then came home for ice cream and cake (homemade German Chocolate cake per Grandma Clara's request!) Her present from the family was a Kodak digital frame that we loaded with over 200 pictures from events over the past five or six years. I think she will enjoy looking at this for hours. Later this week, we have a trip to Michael's Crafts planned. Her baby sister (age 80) and niece will be coming to visit at the end of August. She is really looking forward to that!

Be sure and leave her a Birthday greeting in the comments. She loves getting cards and email.

Happy Birthday, Grandma Clara. You're looking very well and happy. What do you plan to buy at Michael's? I can't imagine a better birthday present than a trip to a craft store! I'm 65 and hope I am as healthy,happy and productive when I reach your age.

digital camera frames are the best gift. My brother got one for my great-grandmother last year for her 100th birthday and she doesn't get to see the family often so it was a nice gift for her to see all her grand great and great great grandchildren.

Happy 87th birthday Grandma Clara!

this wish comes all the way from Western Australia, which is about as far away from you in ALska as one could get on this planet.

I love to hear about the devilment you and Lisa get up to. I was always really close to my grandmother and I miss her presence.

Wishing you many more years of Michael's visits and crafting and family love.

Happy Birthday Grandma Clara! I sure hope I look that good when I'm 87! Heck I wish I looked that good now. The digital picture frame is a great idea. I bet she'll love that.
