Today was our Grandpa's 81st Birthday, and he chose to spend it with us. :>
His outstanding character qualities are... he's a VERY hard worker always busy with a project. He's also very diligent about his work. He is a giver, always thinking of others and never himself. He's of the old school manner wise, always getting the doors for ladies, showing honor and respect to others, he is very selfless and has a tremendous servants heart, etc... He also keeps a close eye on our family giving encouragment and counsel whenever needed. He's a great role model.
He had a cold today, poor thing, so James blew his candles out for him. (Please don't look at the cake. It was the first time I made it and being an ice cream cake it got a little too warm in the making and started to melt. I'm not just being modest!)
