ABC A 75th Birthday Celebration

This Scrapbook page will be entered in the Heart2Heart Challenge - Monday, January 25, 2016, "It is  all about the ABC's".  Used the same colors in the Scrapbook Page as I did in the birthday card and the card will be a page in the Scrapbook.

Another our age each year is a milestone and look forward to many more. Yesterday,   January 30th, was my husband's 75th Birthday...we have known each other for over 55 years.  We raised 3 children back in Angola NY, and now as adults we all reside in Arizona within 2-20 miles from each other.  We are lucky to have 5 Grandchildren in the family...2 reside in Arizona.  The other three grandchildren...2 are near/in Buffalo NY and 1 outside of Washington DC...but we are blessed with their occasional visits to Arizona.  Our gatherings are small, but none-the-less we have fun celebrations and usually capture them pretty good in pictures.

TRIVIA:  What do you think?


Our family photographer, my daughter, left her camera home, so these pictures were taken with her IPhone.  I was so busy looking for a candle that I didn't think to give her my camera...but they all turned fact interesting trying to determine whether the rays are the flashlight, candle or lighter.  Of course we interrupted his first attempt to blow out the finally lit candle to sing our usual "very out of tune" Happy Birthday. Everyone has their own rendition, but we manage to get through at least the first verse and sometimes go to the second.  My Dad always said "Our family can't carry a tune in a basket" but we sure tried. While we were all laughing so hard after the song, Grandpa blew out the candle, but it wasn't captured in a picture.
