Happy 90th Birthday!

Rita Willis Brown, my Grandma, will turn 90 on the 18th. We had a party for her today. Here is a picture of her when she was about my age.Grandma (on the right) and her two sisters, Earline and May.Grandma (on the right) today with her one surviving sister, May.My grandparents and their kids (my mom is the cute one in the bottom corner).Grandma and her kids (Dennis, my mom, Kelly, and Susan). Grandpa passed away 10 years ago.Me, Grandma, and my sister Jenn.
Grandma is probably the biggest Jazz fan I know. (If anyone knows of a way I could introduce her to a few of the Jazz players, let me know. She would LOVE it).
The grandkids. Well, about half of us. Some of them lived too far away to come.

Happy Birthday Grandma!

K that is like the cutest thing I've ever seen. I absolutely love the picture of your gma and her sisters - I want to buy all their clothes! (ask if she still has the patterns ;D I can see you in her old picture when she's your age.

Oh, she is just the cutest! And a Jazz fan, huh? I wish I knew someone. I'd just love to make her day...and you have that same infectious smile! Too cute!

P.S. It was so great seeing you tonight! Sure miss them good ol' days. By the way, you look amazing!

Kirsten- I know! I saw those picture and I was like "Dang Grandma, you had fashion sense! I LOVE those dresses." She is a cute lady. I love her.
