Today is Aunt Bobbie's 96th birthday!! Whooo hooo!! She's such a sweetheart. I picked her up for lunch today. She was smiling ear to ear. I took her to Ivars a local seafood restaurant. She had her clam chowder. She was giddy!! lol She wanted to know how she could be so lucky to have someone to celebrate her birthday with. That made for watery eyes. She had so much fun. When I took her home I told her that I would be back later with Missy and we were going to take her out to dinner. All she could say was that couldn't wait to be with two of her favorite people. She really knows how to get my waterworks running I tell you.
I asked her if she felt 96 and her response was not really but that her mind and legs might think so as she laughed. I couldn't have asked for a better aunt. I'm so very blessed to have such a fantastic family. We had three birthdays this month: Dad's 12/03-94 yrs. old, Mom's b-day 12-30-86 yrs.old and Aunt Bobbies b-day 12-31- 96 yrs. old. It's nice to have longevity in my family. I'll let you know how dinner goes later.

I hope all of you have HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Be safe!! Love you all. HAPPY NEW YEAR JOSH,CHRIS,JACK,LINDY AND SWEENEY TOO!!!!

EDIT: Well we picked her up at 5:30 and by the time we were seated it was 6:35. I haven't seen Aunt Bobbie eat so much in one sitting. WOOOOW!!!! She ate a large green salad then had Chicken,Italian dumplings and,spinach soup. To top off the dinner she had Tiramisu for dessert. She was like a little kid in a candy store. Missy and I loved every moment of it. We had home by 8:30. She's a party animal. LOL
