about us...

I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

Maybe Later

My last grandparent, Grandma Winnie (as Maggie knows her), passed away on Thursday morning. Lots of people have asked if it was expected or if she was sick. She was 94 years old and had dementia/Alzheimer's for some time. She had a massive heart attack on Tuesday, but was alert and her "usual" self on Wednesday night when everyone left the hospital. It always comes as a surprise, no matter what.

Maggie now thinks that the nursing home is empty. Aunt Clara and Grandma (they weren't related to each other) moved to the nursing home around the same time and were both there until shortly before Aunt Clara passed away. Maggie thinks "they're all gone now" since they've both gone to Heaven. Grandma Winnie was also Maggie & Ellie's last great grandparent.

Of course, there are tons of funny Grandma-stories that I want Maggie & Ellie to know, but can't write them down just yet.

They will come with time and when you are ready. That's the good thing with memories...nobody can take them away from you.
