My grandmother Micaela turned 100 in March and that has me on edge because I know that the older she gets, the more likely I won’t have many more memories to build with my beloved grandma, our family’s matriarch.

A couple days ago I got the rare treat of having my grandmother come over to my house to celebrate my daughter Naomi’s 2nd birthday. We held a small daytime cake celebration themed around Sofia the First because that’s Naomi’s favorite Disney Junior character but for me it was an extra special Disney family memory because abuela is 98 years older than Naomi and my daughter is still (until later this year) the youngest member of my grandma’s ever expanding family.

I cherish these moments and so when my two year old had her centenarian great grandmother at her little birthday party the other day, well, we celebrated Naomi’s life but we also noted that this birthday party was truly one for the ages (no pun intended).

Below are some photos we took to capture this incredible family memory courtesy of Disney Junior.  Disney Junior has launched a special Facebook app to encourage families to submit their own family memories in order to win a sweepstakes.  Disney Junior logoHere’s the link to the sweepstakes: so be sure to enter!

Naomi approaches her candles but still doesn’t quite get how to blow them out.

Everyone waits for Naomi to blow the candles as Jonathan continues to coach Naomi to blow them out.

The anticipation rises as it appears Naomi will finally blow out her candles.

Naomi attempts to touch the candles. Um, that’s not a good idea so mom pushes her hand away.

Instead of blowing out her candles, Naomi gets too close to them and they burn part of her hair. This photo captures the moment her hair nipped the candles and Briani’s shocked reaction.

    Soooooo…. did our future president blow out her first cake??? It says a lot que tu hijo Jonathan tries to help his little sister instead of getting impatient; te felicito. Continued blessings with such a beautiful family. Y don’t rule out Abuela’s longevity- las Cubanas, somos duras! ; ) BB2U
