Yesterday my Mom turned 90! She enjoyed all the cards she received. She went over them again and again. Mom has Alzheimers. It seems the cards are all new to her every time she looks at them. That's about the only good thing of that terrible disease. Besides a little heart issue, she is in relatively good health.
Next year my sister and I are buying mom a scarf!
Later in the afternoon, Alex felt the need to be busy. First he was in the blacksmith shop. He forged a poker to use on the camp fires he so loves to play in.
Then he decided to help me in the kitchen. We made his Grandpa's favorite walnut cookies.
The kids are back today, not sure what we will do to keep busy to close out the last day of 2013.
