100 Years Young

Grandma is 100!!

Some highlights from the Bash:

*My cousin (she was Police Chief of Arlington) contacted Gma's old student (she taught at Washington and Lee), Warren Beatty and he sent her a picture and a note.
*DVD of photos of her life by my sis, Mary
*Delicious food
*Crossword puzzle about her
*Boo singing "My Favorite things" (she only practiced for 2 days before!!)

Gma always taught me when you celebrate birthdays in your aging years you just switch the numbers: i.e. 63=36, 93=39. You can't do that with 100 so, Grandma, you're going to have to accept that you've made it to a century!

Hopefully some day I can be the type of anchor she is to my own family.

Happy Birthday Grandma Dixon!

I love your family:)

That song is absolutely fabulous.

She is amazing! Great job Boo!

Kristen said...

That was amazing. How can she remember all of those lyrics??

Jodi said...

Nice job, Bella! Glad we got to hear it after all. See you soon.

Julie she is amazing, no wonder Mary wanted her to sing so bad in our ward. She will love that when she is older.

Tracie said...

What a little performer:) Reminds me of her mother. How cool to have a family matriarch such as your Grandma, Jules:)

Tammi said...

Shalee said...

Lisa said...

That little girl has some good genes!!! Right on pitch and remembered all the words?! Awesome!

Hey, just had a thought: Maybe our two little girls could sing duets some day like we did!!
