90th birthday party

Well, the party is over, and it was a fun one, but it was hard on me. Over fifty people came to wish my grandpa a happy birthday, which means I had one hundred legs to walk around and in between.
When grandpa walked into the house, everybody sang to him!
When you're 90 year's old, you get three birthday cakes! That's my grandma telling my grandpa he only gets to eat one at a time, and he decided to eat this one first.
Grandpa's sisters came to celebrate with us. He is the oldest one in his family right now.
This is grandma again, and she's holding baby Adelia, who is the youngest in our family. She is little and very cute, and she didn't even notice me.
Speaking of noticing me....nobody did. I was monitored very closely all day by Hannah. She made sure everybody kept their shoes on their feet, and she didn't let me wander around and eat crumbs of cake on the floor.
After most of the people left, I got to play with Lenora. She is so fun! Lenora is almost 3 years old, and we played Strawberry Shortcake. I thought this game was about eating strawberries -- that's why I agreed to play -- but it wasn't.
All of the partying was too much for Adelia. She was sooooo tired. Believe you me, I know exactly how she felt.
This is me at the end of the day, being carried by Hannah, napping whenever and however I got the chance. I'm kind of glad that my grandpa will turn 90 just once in his life. It was a hard day for me.

Happy Birthday to Grandpa. 90 is a long time to live and he still looks great. It is tiring have to have someone watch you all day. Where were Fig and Tad?

What a great looking group of prople. Your Grandpa is sooo lucky to have three cakes to choose from! Which one did you get to sample?

And we're not sure who is cuter. You or Adelia. Pop says Adelia but we're voting for you, of course. :-)

What a pawty. Did your grandpa have fun? Too bad you didn't get any cake. At least you did get to go to the pawty right, doesn't look like Fig or Taddy went.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Special Goobery birthday kissies to Grandpa de Petra! WOW! 90! That's like over 13 in dog years.

Petra fren, you look so out of sorts in all those photos but the last one. It was a pawty, yet nothing was as it seemed it was going to be. At least you got some z's there in Hannah's paws.

REst up & have yourself a FAB week, okay sweetie?

Goobery love & kissies to you,

I bet you were VERY well behaved! It looks like a great time with your family and happy birthday to your gramps!

Peanut said...

Your gramps deserves 3 cakes. Massah needed to let you live a little and not watch you so closely. Mom says strawberry shortcake is cool and she would have played that game.

PeeS: I get more belly (& neck) spots as I get older. When mom first got me I didn't have any - now I have oodles!!
Do you have any belly spots or freckles??

What is the point of that Strawberry Shortcake game if you don't get to eat strawberries?

Also, happy b-day x2 to your g-paw!
