Mrs. Irene's "Birthday"

Last week I was sitting with Mrs. Irene on my birthday. She mentioned to me that her 92nd birthday was back in April but she didn't get to do anything in celebration because she was in the hospital.
So she and I decided that the next Saturday I was to be with her we would celebrate both of our birthdays on that day. A week later she had forgotten :)
I went to the store and bought her an angel food cake (her favorite) and some stuff to make cupcakes.
We played in the kitchen most of the day, which is her favorite thing to do. I love it too, she teaches me so much. It is amazing that she can recall the details of so many recipes.
The day turned out wonderful. Some kids in the nieghborhood came to see her and get a cupcake...it lights up her day if she can see any child.
It was a "birthday" I will never forget.
