Grandma's 89th Birthday

On April 21, we celebrated my grandmother's 89th birthday. Grandma doesn't want any gifts but it's hard to show up with nothing so I got her an Edible Arrangement. I've never ordered one before and my friend Sharon said her daughter in law loves to get EA over flowers. She said they have always been fresh and she's always been pleased with them. So I ordered a large arrangement and they are pricey for sure but I didn't have to do it. As long as the person who gets it like all the different fruit especially melon and honeydew they're great. Mom also brought a cake, I suspect so she could put the candles on it, since we didn't need cake too. You know for 4 people...

I also showed my grandmother the quilt I made of her. I drew 3 portraits of her in colored pencil, then added some things she loves around them. Ohio State, cardinals and a portrait of a German Shepard and I made it in the shape of the state of Ohio. She read all the comments people posted on the the Quiltingboard and she was amazed that someone in Australia could see the quilt. She doesn't really get the internet so I just say "it's magic, grandma."

I took some barbecue from Smokey Bones for lunch and showed both mom and grandma my pictures and video of a pair of bluebirds, which they loved. All in all a nice day. Happy birthday grandma!
