Dad's 95th birthday celebration.

Dad's 95th birthday was this past weekend - we had about 20 people over - mostly family and close friends. Catered - fairly easy.

Dad has the greatest hair doesn't he?

Dad at 95 - wow.
Getting ready for the party - not fancy dressed yet.

Isabella (2 years - great grand-daughter) helps take the candles off the cake. Clever child.

Okay - all the candles are finally off!!

Thank you for helping kiddo!

My brother - in -law looking on.

Isabella enjoying her cake in private. Not a sharing moment.

Elvia started out as a house cleaner for the folks and has rapidly progressed to family friend. She got the wonderful Mexican cake (3 milk cake) and gave that to Dad as a present.

He adores her - and she him.

Elvie's sister helped out - these two were dynamo's and made the whole party possible. How lucky are we to have these wonderful women in our lives.

It was a great weekend - busy and tiring but fun to all be together.

Ok, it's already been said-but your father is quite a handsome man! He looks so happy with his family around him-what a nice thing. I sometimes wish our family would do more things together.

What a handsome man your father is Mim! Mazol Tov to him!!!! Way to go DAD! Wow, 95. As my soon to be 90 yr old aunt says "It's just a number". However, it takes a bit to get to that number and I hope we all can do so in as good shape!
And YES he's got great hair!!!!

PS and may all his days be blessed with the likes of you, his dear daughter!
