Nana at the movies

I will never forget the image of my 85 year old grandmother giggling like an eight year old when we took her to see Toy Story 3 today. Her eyes actually sparkled as she ate popcorn (what dentures?) and slurped her root beer through her straw. She even ate a took her a while, but doggoned - she ate it! The wheelchair we left at the end of the aisle so that she could sit in the more comfortable theater seats was completely forgotten and for those two hours she was transported and transformed. Beautiful.

  1. The power of a good movie. If only Hollywood made it easier to actually MAKE them...

    So happy Nana could be a kid for a couple hours :)
