This past Wednesday was my grandma Elena's birthday. She has probably passed the 80 year mark by now (I'm not too sure on her actual age) and she's still going! This year has been especially trying for her. She survived a bad fall, a heart attack, and living with me - not an easy feat. She has a very large and very supportive family to help her through everything and we're all fortunate for having her around so long. So what better way to celebrate than with a Cookie Monster cake... yum!
