The Half-Century Celebration

Today we all celebrated Dad's 50th birthday. Mom prepared an extravagant dinner feast and invited Cousins Trip and Sally to join us in the festivities. Trip brought over a great big wooden "50" complete with Christmas lights. Pictures of Dad's official acceptance into the half-century club are highlighted below.

After finishing the chocolate-mint cake, Dad opened a wide variety of presents including a gum ball dispenser, a box of pecan sandies and a "Stanfordville" hat. We spent the remainder of the evening piled up in the living room to watch one of Dad's favorite movies, Radio, with our homemade movie theater set-up.
