Sorry! I have been so busy this past week. Busy enough that my Christmas tree is still up. Oh well. I LOVE Christmas and have enjoyed it so it doesn't bother me too much. We just celebrated Christmas w/ my Papa and his family yesterday. Papa has Alzheimer's or some other form of dementia so I cherish the moments that we get to spend w/ him when he is lucid. He remembers who we are, he just can't always put everything together. Here's one of the last pic that I have of him. I think Celia was 2 weeks old here. We were on our way home from getting her newborn pics done.
Grandma lived until December 2010. Her health had been declining for a while, but she came out of her room and came alive when the great-grandbabies came over. It was fun watching her make the effort to play and sing to Cecelia. Celia loves to play Granny's piano when she goes over. I know grandma is smiling down from heaven.
