On Sunday, my grandmother turned 93. She had a difficult summer with illness, and we weren't sure if she was going to pull through. She did, and our family decided to throw her a birthday party.
This was my "Thanksgiving" this year, since the event was out of town and a few days before the holiday.

Not everyone gets to blow out a 93!
Though hectic and a long day, Grandma truly enjoyed it. She got tears in her eyes at least twice as she saw people she hadn't seen in many years. And that's all that matters. :-)
