Fabulous Family Fun-Poppy Turns 80!

My Step Dad, Landon's "Poppy", turns 80 today but he is no April fool. He has been an integral part of my life for twenty years and I love him to pieces. We had a surprise party for him while he was out for Easter with my mom last week.

He had no idea we were having a party for him when he showed up to my sisters house!


He was even more surprised when his good friend Frank Sinatra showed up!



My sisters house is in the Hollywood Hills and has a killer view so the whole night was so magical listening to Frank under the stars!



It's so important to really celebrate milestones with your family. You only go around once, so make it good!

Aww, I am so glad you all were able to celebrate Poppy's 80th birthday! I have such fond memories of my grandfather's 80th birthday party.

You are celebrating some parties! How fun! Did I mention my birthday tomorrow? hehe Again! I've added your baby's shirts on my blog. Will you e-mail the mailing address? Again! These are sooo bad but maybe he can wear them to the pool or sleep in them!

What an amazingly fun party. Poppy looks like he can still cut a rug at 80 like he is just 16 years old!
