My Father's 90th Birthday Party

The Guest of Honor
We celebrated my Dad's 90th birthday on Sunday. We had a reception and family dinner for him at his church Countrywide Christian. I think Dad enjoyed himself. He was convinced no one would come. He has reached the age where he has outlived so many people. However, quite a few older people came in. Dad used to drive the bus for the senior group and a lot of people remembered him. He had quite a few family members there as well. My sister Chris did most of the work. My sister in law took care of the cake and I did the invitations and the photo display. Scrapping does have some skill to be used elsewhere after all. I had been so distracted since Andrew's accident, I am grateful that Chris just went ahead and took care of everything. My Dad is doing so well, I have hope for my own old age.
