This weekend


Andy's grandfather turned 90 over the weekend. We had a celebration with the entire family! Great-grandpa lives out of town, so this is the first time he met Alex. We had a great time and are so thankful and blessed to have him in our life. He and Great-grandma (who went home to Jesus 8 years ago) are both WWII veterans (she trained men-I have a lot of respect for that woman!), have raised 7 children and have many grand children and great grandchildren. Last year, Grandpa announced that he wanted a big party for his 90th! He is so youthful-it is hard to believe he is 90! He still travels quite often and is a man of great faith! Doesn't he look great for 90??? We love you Grandpa!

congratulations to your Grandpa on his 90th birthday.

It seems a bit redundant to say may God bless him for he certainly has with such good health and long life so maybe I will say May God continue to bless him as he has for all these years.

Therese, your family photo is beautiful - what a blessing to have a 90 year old grandfather, let alone being able to celebrate his birthday with him.

Have a wonderful weekend,
Love and blessings, Jillian ♥
