Here's a picture I took of Clara last week. I thought she looked like a big girl sitting at the table all by herself. Please excuse her ghetto hair-do, she was sick when I took this picture ;o(.
My Christmas Cactus bloomed the other day... woo hoo! The Christmas Cactus plant reminds me of my great grandmother (my grandpa's mom on my mom's side). My mom had a Christmas Cactus of my grandmother's for many years.
Why did I take a picture of shoes, you ask... These shoes were the last item my Nana bought for the girls. She bought them for Aiyana a while back and by the time we got them from Iowa, they were too small for Aiyana to wear so Clara has been wearing them. My grandma was recently diagnosed with Lewy Bodies dementia. We have known for a couple of years that she had dementia, but it was initially diagnosed as Alzheimer's Disease. In any case, my Nana has bought the girls many cute outfits over the last several years, but this pair of shoes remain the last item she bought for my girls and I will cherish them forever. I figured what better way of preserving them than taking a picture of them. Are they not adorable?
