  2. My sister bought him the shirt, and it's so true: "Who knew 90 could look this good?"

    1. Nobody could have blown out all those candles alone! The flames almost reached the ceiling!

  5. Deb, are there actually 90 candles on that cake? I stopped putting the real number of candles on our cakes for fear of setting the house on fire. lol Did you like his cake outdoors or were you inside? That would have scared me to see those flames. Was someone on standby with a fire extinguisher? lol I bet your dad got a big kick out of all the fuss, though. He looks really great for his age. My FIL will be 94 in March but his health started declining in 2013 after the passing of his wife. He just isn't the same man physically as he was in those days. His mind is still sharp, though. Thanks for sharing your dad's birthday moments with us on WW! Have a good week, my friend!

  8. Was this from just this year? I noticed the 2016 date and thought it was a throwback photo. What a shot! So many candles. I'd feel a little nervous about trying to put that out!

  10. 90 years, and still going strong it seems. But the cake? Was it possible to eat it when the candles was out?
