Birthday Party-How Many of You will get to 100????

Saturday, September 10, 2011

I am totally wiped out tonite, but the emoticon (party) was a huge success. I have had a difficult time keeping this from dad but he was surprised. I was totally amazed by the turnout. We had 17 family members attend and there were 86 who attended and several who could not make it stopped by his house either before or afterwards. My 6 grandkids sent by e-mail a recording of them singing Happy Birthday to their great-grandpa which we played at the party.
I was blessed with lots of wonderful helpers.

We set a beautiful room up last evening.

Dad arrived and was a bit suspicious when he saw all the golf carts in front of the clubhouse.

Wow, where did all these people come from??

So many wonderful friends came out to celebrate the day with us.

Dad with all 4 of us kids.

Yum, yum, let there be cake!

This is the whole clan that was able to make it to the party

And now my dear Spark friends, I am going to get some much needed rest!!!

    What a wonderful surprise and I'm glad so many family members were able to make it. I know it was a lot of hard work, but I'm sure it was well worth all the effort! Now you can sit back & relax for a little while.

    I really didn't take long to look at the pics, Dad looks like a litte kid amongst all of us-like a tiny little person in a field of giants!

    Fabulous! I'm so glad your Dad was surprised. I know you must have worked very hard to get it all ready for him and he must be very proud of you. Imagine a 100th birthday party - and he looks wonderful too!
