My Grandpa's Birthday

Meet my Grandpa! He is turning 90 years old on Saturday! Can you believe that?! My mom and her brother and sisters are having a party for him, and around 60 people are coming to wish him a happy birthday. Here is a picture of him a l-o-n-g time ago. Isn't he cute?
And this is what he looks like today. He's still cute, and I love him alot.

Things are buzzing around here, and everybody is pitching in to help make this a special day for him. Leah gets to take pictures, but Hannah has a better job: she gets to watch me! I'm not sure what she'll watch me do, but with so many people coming, there's going to be lots of shoes around, and I love to eat shoes, whether people are wearing them or not. My new favorites are flip-flops because I can steal them right off of people's feet when they're sitting down. Woo! I can't wait for the party!

Oooh, I love flip flops too. My favorite are my mom's Crocs brand flip flops, because they're especially squishingly pleasing to chew.

Grandpa looks great for 90. Don't bloat yourself up on flip flops.

I heard the material in flip flops cab cause real bellyaches, so be careful Miss P!

happy birthday to your grandpa. He looks really good for 90. Have fun with all the shoes.

Hmm, maybe you should lay off the shoe-stealing, just for the party, so it's absolutely pawfect for your grandpa. Now, I'm not a shoe-gal myself but rumor has it that some humans aren't that eager to let even the cuterest pups eat their shoes. Have fun, little Petra!

Yes grandpa is still very handsome. You better watch out posting him. There will be lots of suiters knocking on your door...

We love shoes too.... especially Opal!! There is nothing better than a nice pair of high heels, but flip flops are good too!! I have destroyed two pairs in the last year and am working on my third!! Enjoy the party.. hope you get lots of shoes to chew on!! We recommend chewing a little bit on as many shoes as possible!! :)

Pwease give use Gwandpa hugs and smoochies, I don't think he wants bellyrubs. Have fun at the pawty and don't eat to much junk food or shoes. How is Hannah feeling?
Gwandpa doesn't look a day over 75.
