Happy 91st Birthday CR!

This past weekend we celebrated my father-in-law's 91st birthday. He is kind, funny, and thoughtful, a wonderful man. I am grateful to have had him in my life for the past 30 years. As you can see, our photographer had a hard time getting us to focus. The jokes were flying and we were laughing too hard to settle down for a picture. That's my husband in the green shirt standing next to me, and that's my handsome son right behind us. A totally unbiased opinion, of course.

Don't you love the birthday crown? We have used it, or some version of it, for years. Even when we go out to a restaurant, the birthday honoree has to wear it. I remember being mortified the first time I had to wear the crown in public, but over the years I have come to appreciate it. No one sees it without smiling or laughing. Aren't birthday traditions fun?

What a wonderful celebration! Everyone looks to be having a great time. The Birthday Crown is a terrific idea...I'm putting it on my list of ideas to copy.

C.R. looks mighty good for 91!

Oh, I love family traditions like this. What a treasure - to have a dad in your life for this long.

Next year we will celebrate Dad's 91 birthday and I want to do a crown for him. Wish I had thought about that this year.
