Grandma's room. Isn't she just so cute! This was last Wednesday. She showered that morning and then later on in the day I went and did her hair for her:-) She looked so cute!

Her hair all did! It looked really cute and this picture doesn't really do it justice. I had a chair set up in the bathroom for her to sit on while I did her hair. We had gone for a walk in the halls before you did it. They were making popcorn so we took some back to the room for her. I went outside to talk w/ mom on the phone for a min and I came back in and grandma's all settled in to her beauty chair, munching on her popcorn. She looked sooo cute! I wished later I had taken a picture!

The bathroom...

The Bed w/ the kitty laying on it..

Her "sitting area" and closet

All ready for bed... aren't they just too cute all comfy!?

On Thursday she got the flu:( Then on Saturday night Matt and I got the flu really bad. We had been w/ her a lot, helping w/ laundry and such and caught it. Oh well, would have gotten it somewhere I'm sure. It's been so nice to have her in LaCrosse where Matt and I are all the time anyway. It would have been hard for us to find time to see her if she had been in Winona. Besides being sick, we've been able to see her every day. She's such a blessing to me. Matt also loves her as his own grandma. She's so very up-beat and positive about everything! I mean everything, too! What a great lesson to learn and legacy to leave. It is what it is and we're going to be thankful for what we have. I love her dearly and have always been so thankful for her being such a big part of my life all my growing up years!
Matt and I went out to the mall on Saturday and got her two really pretty new blouses and a tee shirt to put under them. She keeps saying she hasn't bought anything new in so long. She loved what we got her and lit right up when she saw them:-) They are very pretty colors that she looks really nice in. We'll have to try and get her out once this week, or to church next week so she can wear one of them:-)

She is also very fortunate to have you! I have to admit I'm a little envious. My grandma is back in MN, and we are here on the East Coast so I don't get to see her as often as I'd like. It is nice to see that you are cherishing each and every moment.

Does your mom still have the photo on her frig of you and your grma in matching outfits? I bet you are as big a blessing to her as she is to you. You and Matt can be proud of the way you honor her.
