(AKA My Grandma or Abuela or Abuelita)
My grandma is probably one of the best people on earth. She has a way of making me and my brother not fight. When I was little she often took us to the Children's Museum. During the Christmas season she likes to invite me and my brother over to bake Christmas cookies. Often when we stay over, we bake pizza or breadsticks or even a recipe we found on the internet. The only flaw is that she likes to talk for a long time. She also lives around Indianapolis making it a long drive.
