D is for D'oh...

...which is how I felt when I couldn't think of something...

...because...d'oh... D is for my Dad. And I wanted to share some pictures of him from his 80th Birthday party...

I love my Dad. He's crazy. And funny. And he doesn't care if he's weird. I think I might have inherited that specific sets of genes from him.









...and that's all I have for the Letter "D"!

Jenny, love the ABC song! And now I'll tell you what I think of you . . . I think you are one energetic fire ball full of wonderfully creative thoughts and ideas. Your dad must be so proud of you! What a joy to celebrate 80 years of life with a fabulous party in one's honor, and all orchestrated by YOU!
I bet you are Daddy's Darling!

RNSANE said...

Your dad is amazing for 80, Jenny! He looks so great in that white suit and what a smile on his face! The family picture is wonderful and will really be a treasure for young and old alike. Congratulations on a job well done, with that party.

I am so happy that you love your Dad as much as I love mine. My Dad was 80 last year this year obviously he is 81 so we are having an 18th birthday party for him and yes I did mean 18th. Whilst he is old in body and dementia is creeping in he is still young in so many ways and with 4 fantastic 18- 24 year old grandchildren seems a great idea to party the day away plus his birthday is on 18th March

Looks like there might have been a lot of that candy leftover! LOL
How'd you get all those candles lit? I could just see me trying to get the last one lit before the 1st one was burnt away!!
I'm glad the party turned out to be a big hit!

Thanks for sharing the pictures of the party. Your dad looks like he was having a great time. I bet he had some wonderful words for such a loving daughter to throw him such a bash! Red hat? Needs a little purple to go with it!
