A Kidd's 90th Birthday

My cute Grandpa Kidd turned 90 on the 24th.
Many of the cousins that live out of town were here to celebrate.
We had such a pleasant gathering at Grandpa and Grandma's home with cake and ice cream, lots of hugs, pictures and kids running around.

Great Grandkids...missing 9 (if I counted right)

 Grandkids...missing 9 also


 Grandma helps Grandpa eat since his hands are so shaky.
Aren't they the cutest?

 Fond memories of this home...
I spent the first five years of my life in the basement apartment.

 Ben had had a rough day seizure wise so he was a bit grumpy to begin with... but he came around.

 Just our family.
Someone must have cracked a joke and I was the only one that got it :)
 Mom and Grandma sang an old time ditty that they were both amazed they remembered.

Growing up, there were six of us girl cousins very close in age.
We had fun times together.
We are missing one - We love you Dayna!

Grandpa Kidd is a man that I love and respect deeply.
He always has a kind word.  He is gentle and humble and a stalwart disciple of the Lord.
He has served Him his whole life and it emanates from him.
He and Grandma are a joy to be around.
They have blessed so many lives and will continue to for generations to come.


  1. You captured the spirit of the evening, Aimee. It was a memorable event!

  2. Oh what fun! Sounds like your Grandpa is a neat man!

  3. Such a fun family gathering. So glad for you that you have your grandparents and are able to spend time with them. I have so many wonderful memories of my grandparents - can't imagine growing up without them!
