Today, 80 years ago, one of my most favorite people in the whole entire world was born... my grandma and she is most definitely stupendously awesome. I couldn't let the day pass without doing a special post just for her, she is my most faithful reader. After a little blog scan, I apparently did the exact same thing last year... maybe it's becoming a tradition? Or maybe it's just proof that despite my best intentions, I never manage to do anything more spectacular. We did, however, during a mini family reunion earlier this summer, in Northern California, throw my grandma a surprise birthday party when all her kids were together and some of her grandkids and great-grands. Although I'm sure she'd prefer I didn't share, here are some pics from that fun.

Grammy, I wish that we could be there today to celebrate with you. Please know that you are always in our thoughts and we wish you the best on your super special day. 80 is awesome and so are you! We love you lots. ♥ Laurie, Dan & the kiddos
Leona, Jonny & Euan wanted to wish you a happy birthday too:
