Today was my Grandpa’s 90th birthday party. I’ve been lucky enough to be super close with my grandparents throughout my entire life. My dad’s parents were both deceased before I was born, so I was even closer to my mom’s parents than I probably would have been if my dad’s parents were still alive.
My grandma passed away in January of 2009, but I still think she lives on in my Grandpa. He is a strong, determined, caring man and I am so lucky to be his granddaughter.
His stories are full of character, history and bravery. His hugs are full of love.
He is my favorite grandpa, ever. :)
I don’t know what year this was, but either late 80’s, early 90’s. And I was afraid of stuffed animals as a child, don’t tease me. Also this was my favorite dress.
This was my wedding in February 2010.
I decided to make Corn on the Cob Cupcakes for the party, and apparently they were a hit!
They were a lot of fun to make. I used yellow cupcakes, vanilla frosting (dyed yellow), and 3 kinds of jellybeans. The white were coconut, the light yellow were pineapple and the dark yellow were banana. The melted pats of butter were Starbursts that I melted down a little and molded into their shapes.
Seriously sweet, but seriously delicious!
