It was a birthday celebration like no other at Our Lady of Peace in Charlottesville Sunday, as one resident blew out candles for her 105th birthday.

Annie Payne White, or Granny, as she's nicknamed around the retirement community, spent the day eating cake with friends and family members. White says her favorite presents are $20 bills and her new sparkle shoes.

"Everybody sang to me and I enjoyed it, I enjoyed most every bit of it, all of it," she said. "Because I lived this age, I didn't think I'd be living this long."

White says she remembers many of her birthday celebrations, but this year's was one of her favorites yet.
