105-year-old woman asks for firefighters for her birthday

And she got them!

Ivena Smailes just turned 105, and all she wants for her birthday is for dashing firemen to bring her cake.

The adorable woman celebrated her birthday last week in Crawcrook, England, and to celebrate the milestone Ivena requested that a pack of “hunky firefighters” show up and party.

Her birthday wish was fulfilled when a firefighter climbed through her third floor window, and delivered a sponge cake.

Of course, Ivena was thrilled, saying: “It was great! Out of this world.”

According to ABC, Ivena loves to ask for random birthday gifts:

“Ivena’s been with us for three years now, and she’s got a fantastic sense of humour, just look at her party today,” Debra told Metro. “On her bucket list this year she wanted a cake delivered by a fireman with tattoos. We’ve managed to find one and the fire brigade have been fantastic about it; they were arguing over who was going to climb the ladder and deliver it to her.”

“For her birthday last year she tried to get us to climb a tree. She always tries to find something we can’t do.” Well it looks like they exceeded her expectations this time around!

What a fantastic woman!
