Happy Birthday Old Paw!

Sunday we celebrated Old Paw's 90th birthday! Yep that is my grandfather, my children's great grandfather! Wow 90, I know. All 14 of his grandchildren got together to throw him a party, we all put in, rented out a nice place and threw a helluva shindig, if I may say so myself. It was the first time in I don't know how many years we were all under the same roof. And I must say it felt good. The only person missing was my grandmother and I am sure she was looking down on us very jealous that she wasn't there. I think she would have loved to have seen the whole family together!
And the picture above warms my heart, because I know Old Paw (as Meredith calls him) won't be around forever! And I am just so happy that I was able to get this photo and that Meredith was able to get to know him. I hope Noah gets the same opportunity.
I have many fond memories of my grandfather growing up! Riding on the "hump" in his car between him and my grandmother. Shopping at TJ Maxx for clothes for church when I would sleep over! Him fixing me stuffed bell peppers for my entire grade for cajun week. Eating stewed chicken at his house with everyone weekly! The way he would fix me french bread pizzas when I didn't like what they were eating! I was the "apple of his eye"! I have always loved this Old Man... my grandfather! So this is to you....Happy Birthday!
