My Grandma Rowell celebrated her 101st birthday last week! Last year, in October 2015, Savannah, Hadley, and I flew to Illinois to celebrate my Grandma's 100th birthday. We enjoyed seeing family and friends and celebrating Grandma's milestone birthday. (This post is for my mom who has patiently waited a year for me to post the rest of my pictures from Grandma's birthday weekend.)

A local bank wished Grandma a Happy 100th Birthday on their marquee:

Up until a few years ago, Grandma loved to sew and make crafts.
She kept a collection of buttons for her projects:

My mom, who was baby #5, wasn't born yet when this picture was taken:

My Aunt Joy (my mom's sister) created these hand-written timelines for each decade of Grandma's life. Each timeline includes important world events and inventions, as well as family photos and what was happening in Grandma's life during that time:
