August 17th, 1948

On Sunday, Tom, the best father in law in the world, turned 60! I'm sooooo glad this man was born...not just because he's super wonderful, but without him, I wouldn't have Daryl or Mia :) Turning 60 has been a tad hard for him, but just LOOK at him! He's so handsome! Do you know he takes a 30 min nap EVERY day....Dee can't even remember him not doing it. I think it keeps him young and spry. He's also the bestest Pawpaw in the world...ask Mia.

Pawpaw is great! He gives me chocolate cake!

See, Pawpaw? There's an eye here and here and here....

Mia is SO excited her Pawpaw got a new reel

Pawpaw, Mia and Daddy check it out


Happy Birthday Pawpaw!

We LOVE you!

What a loving loving family!
They must love having some mamarazzis in the family. =)

BTW, 1978 would make Tom VERY young. Even younger than me!

What a lot of birthday in your world lately! Happy birthday, Tom! I love the way you capture every detail of events...I feel like I'm right there. Daryl sure looks a lot like his Dad! And I LOVE the Mia & Daddy hug.

Your blog is a wonderful scrapbook and you take absolutely perfect pictures. What kind of camera do you use? Beautiful.
