Wonderful Afternoon with Grandma!

Isn't this the cutest picture!!!
It's my Grandma Martha at her Christmas party today.
She was so happy to see me there.
I was thrilled that she gave me such
a beautiful smile for the picture.
She never did like having her picture taken.
At least during the years I lived with her.

I didn't want mine taken either,
but one of the attendants insisted.
I asked her to take off about 30 lbs. with the camera,
but as you can see it just didn't work...
Guess what my New Year's Resolution is this year... Again!
Grandma was so thrilled to see Santa,
she even stood up and gave him a big hug.
I realized after a bit that she thought he was my
brother, Tom, who passed away about 8 years ago.
She always had a soft spot for him.
She asked me why he hadn't come to visit for so long,
and when did he put on all that weight... hohoho!
Grandma loved getting the presents from Santa.
There was a sing-a-long in the next room,
but she wanted to just sit and visit.
The music was loud enough to enjoy where we were sitting.
PJ had baked her that 7UP Cake, and she loved it.
It was a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours.
