Sweet Memories of a 90th Birthday and Other Stuff

I have been preparing for this past weekend for a couple of months.  It was the weekend of my Dad's 90th birthday.  And, since only 10% of folks ever live to see 90, a celebration was certainly in order.

My sweet younger brother and his wife came from Arizona to join in the celebration. Doesn't Daddy look dapper in his pretty sports coat and bow tie?

Suzy, my sweet sister in law was such a help  assisting with the cake, ice cream and punch and serving it to the residents and those that dropped by to see Daddy.  

Our son was the only grandchild that was able to attend, but, he did a good job representing the 5 others.  Daddy has 6 grandchildren and 6 great grans.

Many dear friends stopped by to see Daddy and he so enjoyed seeing them all.

These two great guys are the men that sit at Daddy's table and they enjoy each meal together.  It's part of Daddy's favorite time of day as they enjoy conversing and solving all the world's problems. ~chuckle~  These 3 men represent 266 years!  Yep, Daddy is 90, Mr. WM is 93 and Mr. James is 83.  They have had some life experiences for sure!

The residents all enjoyed the celebration as well.  Most all of them came down to the dining room to participate.

Daddy was "tuckered out" by the time the celebration was over but it was a good "tuckered out."

After the party Daddy took a nap and then came over to our house for his birthday dinner.  These two girlies made him feel very special. 

We took him to breakfast Saturday morning to kick off his special day.  He is now settled in to live out his 91st year and feels very celebrated.

In other news...........these two boys were so cute on Halloween.  Coleman was a dragon and Clancy was a rodeo clown.

Friday night these two went to see David Crowder and Mercy Me in concert.  Bridget graduated from high school with the wife of Mike Scheuchzer (pictured above), a member of Mercy Me.  So, after the concert they got to go back stage and see him and the other group members.  It was a big night for them and their Momma.  Daddy stayed home with baby Case. 

And, Coleman has been wanting overalls for months and finally got some Saturday.  The first thing he told his Dad and Mom was that he wanted to wear them to church and he did just that.  Of course, everyone thought he was too cute in them. ~a country boy~

AND, to top off a wonderful weekend our LSU Tigers beat Alabama Saturday night.  It was the perfect weekend all the way around.

  1. Such a wonderful weekend celebrating your dad's birthday! He looks great!

    1. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:

  2. You know my husband was so happy about that LSU game. What a beautiful celebration of your dad!

  3. Aww been waiting for this. He did look mighty dapper. So happy he was surrounded by so much love. Coleman in those overalls...what preciousness. Everybody looks grand and I love your party outfit! xo

  4. What a wonderfully happy post! Your dad looks GREAT, and I especially like his scooter caps. (My hubby wears a gray tweed one when it's cold.) The party looks so festive and how wonderful that people could come to see him on this special day!!

    The boys look so fun in their costumes. A rodeo clown -- what a clever idea, and so appropriate for where he lives and the things that interest him.

    Thank you for sharing this special time with us!!

  5. I think overalls on kids is simply cute. Happy birthday to your dad! Looks like he had a great celebration.

  6. Oh what a handsome Dad you have! I know you all had a great time celebrating this milestone! AND... OH my what CUTE kids, I just love seeing those pictures:) Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

  7. What a wonderful time you all had celebrating your daddy. What a blessing to have him at that age Lea. I just want to hug him....Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  8. Looks like a good time was had by all, celebrating your Daddy's 90th birthday.

  9. What a wonderful party! Your Dad is so lucky to have such a thoughtful daughter as you. Hope you have a wonderful week. That cute little Coleman looks like he is full of the dickens!!! Enjoy your week, dear Lea!!

  10. So glad you were able to celebrate your dad in a special way. Happy birthday to him! And yes those overalls are too cute : )

  11. Lea, happy birthday to your sweet dad. He looks great. Looks like a fun celebration. You are the best daughter. Everything is good on my end. I am flying down to visit my mom on Saturday. Enjoy the weekend.

  12. Hi Cici! I am excited to have stumbled upon your blog. You have a beautiful family, and such a handsome dad! He doesn't look 90, that's for sure! Happy belated birthday to him; looks like the celebration was just perfect.

  13. I've been thinking so much about Pastor Duncan. He will forever be my my pastor. Happy belated birthday! Always loved by so many.

  14. Omg I Finally Got Helped  !! I'm so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman  and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out..  I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I'm so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact  Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want.. Via Email or Call/WhatsApp +2347012841542


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
