Happy Birthday, Daddy!!

Since I have yet to transfer my files from my old computer to my new, I don't have many pictures of my daddy to post here. None of these are very recent, but you can still see how damn cute he is!!

This is from about a year and a half ago, at my uncle's 80th birthday party. This is my dad, my uncle and their older sister. Oh, yeah, I said older! This photo doesn't really do her justice, but trust me, she does NOT look like an 85 year old woman. Thank God there are some great genes in this family. This is my uncle who has been quite ill lately, so it's almost hard to look at this picture, because he looks so healthy here.
This actually from my dad's birthday 2 years ago. We had just opened the bar exactly a week before this, and we had a big bash for my dad's birthday there. This is a horrid picture of my parents, and they would kill me if they knew I was putting it out there for the world to see (well, ok mostly just my mother would kill me!) but I wanted to show you what my dad actually wore for part of his party. One of my silly cousins bought him a card that punched out to make a crown. Can you see what that crown says?! BIRTHDAY SLUT!! Bwah hahahaha!!! This was my dad's 65th birthday, and he actually wore THIS on his head!
This picture has been posted several times here already, but as you already know, this is one of my favorite pictures with my daddy.
