Happy (belated) Birthday Grandpa!

Last week my grandpa turned 91 years old, so this weekend we all celebrated him!  We had fried chicken, mashed potatoes &gravy, green beans and apple salad. All of his favorites! 

My mom made him his favorite Coca-cola cake, we sang Happy Birthday, and he blew out his candle... (91 candles is a fire hazard y'all!)  I think that he had a really good day.
Grandpa LOVES my boys.  I think that it's evidenced here by the huge smile on his face.  A smile you rarely see unless they're around.  

My Grandpa is an extraordinary man.  He still lives alone, passes his driving test annually, and amazes his doctor continually with his perseverance, strength, and general good health!   I am so thankful to be able to celebrate his birthday with him. 
Love you Grandpa!!

  1. WOW Stephanie, I want the exact same meal when I turn 91 as your Grandpa had!!! I loved this blog and you are so right...the smile is there when the boys are there!! Too cute and so typical of a Grandparent. However I am only a Great Aunt to those precious boys and I smile too when they are around. I LOVE Great Nephews!!!! Love Aunt/Great Aunt Ruthie
