Yia-Yia Turns 80!

My grandmother turned 80 a little while back.
I can't even fathom living the life she has had.
I can't imagine having 5 children, 12 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
What a legacy.
What a blessing.
A lot of our family was able to gather together for a great meal at a nice restaurant to celebrate.
It was on a Monday, on a school night.
We dressed nice and some rushed from work.
The kids horsed around and we kept getting up to settle them down.
My cousin and her husband drove 9 hours to be there.
My uncle - her only son- was there from across the U.S.
And even my MIL came.
We made a sign and made and bought special cookies.
We laughed and just watched her.
She told us stories and laughed as well.
And I hope we do it all again when she turns 81 next year.
