Celebrating Terry's 100th Birthday

 We were happy to celebrate Terry's 100th birthday with his family and friends.
Terry's family and friends were in attendance to welcome him to the Centenarian Club.
 
 Terry's birthday happened to fall on Mardi Gras, so we went with that as our theme.

Everyone sang happy birthday and we were so happy that he blew out his own candles.

 Anita had a great time.
