Hard to believe that Grandma will be turning 80 in a couple of days. Mel and Nan just celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary a couple of days ago too. There seems to be lots to celebrate this time of year. It's just too bad that her arthritis is acting up. She's been having some difficulty with her knee which has affected her mobility a lot. She's going to have a knee brace fitted next week, we're all hoping that this will give her some relief. So far the drugs haven't really been helping much. Anyway, it was nice to have the family over this weekend to help celebrate the big milestone. The family pitched in and got Grandma some new bar stools too. We surprised her on Sunday morning. Tracey and Roger even put together a special ice cream cake for Grandma. It's fitting because ice cream is one of the few foods she's actually able to eat.
In other news, Roger did very well at the annual shooting competition shooting 21/25 and 24/25 taking first place overall. Albert took second place and Grandpa Harry placed third. Pretty good showing if you ask me. Roger's never been able to shoot 25/25, it's a very illusive target.
Roger even managed to fit in a quick headshot session for Nicole, she needed a headshot for an audition she's going for next week. Naturally, all the kids wanted their picture. Murphy's law isn't it, when you want them to take a picture they resist. Here are some pictures from the big weekend:
