Girl Celebrates 10th Birthday Party at Granny's Nursing Home So She Doesn't Miss Out
Granny Rita Blankenship, 61, had undergone spinal surgery in May, and was unable to leave the retirement home due to complications from her surgery.
This Tennessee girl was determined to celebrate her 10th birthday with her beloved granny, so when she was unable to make it, they brought the party to her.
Ten-year-old Ellie Boshers of Pulaski was devastated to find out her grandmother, Rita Blankenship, would not be well enough to attend her party in December.
Blankenship, 61, had undergone spinal surgery in May, and was unable to leave the retirement home due to complications from her surgery.
"Mom has missed two of Ellie's birthdays due to her health. She'd never miss an event if she could help it," Kimber Boshers, Ellie's mom and Blankenship's daughter, told InsideEdition.com. "They're buddies."
From cutting Ellie's umbilical cord to taking her to Disneyland, Boshers said her daughter and her mom are best of friends. The pair also enjoys baking, shopping and painting together.
So, instead of celebrating double-digits without granny, they decided to bring the party to her nursing home.
Boshers said she consulted the facility, and after asking parents to talk to party guests about being on their best behavior, the family and eight of Ellie's friends were able to throw an "Alice in Wonderland"-themed party at granny's retirement home just up the street from their house.
"There were games, crafts, a photo booth and dress-up accessories for them," Boshers explained. "The nursing home was fabulous."
