We decided to give her an HD flat screen tv for her birthday, and she loves it. The highlight of her party was speaking to her niece in Australia, via Skype. She was amazed that she could see her and speak to her!
I spent the majority of my visit with Nan, talking, laughing and visiting with family. There is nothing better than the feeling you get with family. I just wish we all lived closer! It is sad to think of how much we miss of each other's day to day lives, being so far away. But, I guess it just makes the time spent together so much sweeter. I did spend four days with my brother and his family. His wife Jessie is just the sweetest girl you could ever meet. She made me feel so welcome! And my adorable nieces were fabulous. They begged me to stay in Saskatchewan the night before I left.
All in all, I had a great time. It was so wonderful to see everyone, and being there for Nan's 90th meant more than I can say. It was soo hard to leave, but Nan confided in me before I left, 'I might come to visit in the Spring.' And, if I know my Nan, she'll be here!
