Happy 90th Birthday, Cecil!

My father-in-law celebrated his 90th birthday last week and this is the card that I made him. Cecil is such a sweet man and is in such fabulous health for his age. I think he'll be with us for many, many more years to come.

Here's the inside of the card.  The picture of him was taken back in the early Spring with the beautiful Miramichi River in the background.

We had a birthday party for him and this is the sign that was outside the church where we had the party.  He was pretty surprised about the party.  We drove the 5 hours to Jim's hometown the night before the party, stayed in a motel for the night and showed up at Jim's Dad's place two hours before the party...just enough time to get him ready.  I think he was still in shock here in the picture!  lol  :)

A special thanks again to the many people that made this party a success.  We couldn't have pulled this party off without you. Also, thank you to those who attended the party in celebration of this special milestone.  I know Cecil was honoured that you all attended and he had a great time after he got over the shock!

OK, stay tuned, I still have a few more cards to show you...

Thanks for stoppin by! :)
