An Easter Birthday Celebration…..

   Yesterday we celebrated Easter and Alice Mary and Bob’s birthday with family and friends. It was held at Bob’s brother Joe’s house and we had a barbecue instead of the usual Easter dinner. The food was wonderful. Everyone brought a dish and chipped in to help prep, cook, clean, pick up and join in the festivities. We had bratwurst dogs of many flavors and cheeseburgers, mostly cooked by my son Kyle. He also sautéed some green peppers, onions, and mushrooms to go on those delicious burgers……supplied by Joe,DSC04125  while his sister Carissa looked on. We had some great old friends that were visiting that day and what a welcoming sight they were! It was a breezy and somewhat chilly day so we stayed inside a lot, close to Joe’s warm and inviting woodstove. DSC04142 Nestled in and around it was a comfy cozy place to be. We had homemade pasta salad, potato salad, and a special coleslaw Woody made with Happy Easter nicely spelled out in Yellow bell peppers…..great idea Woody! Sorry I did not get a photo of it though!DSC04129 For dessert we had carrot cake with cream cheese frosting….forgot the ice cream!! My bad! It was a good day and we even managed to play a little bit of guitar. Yup….it was a lot of fun….even the dogs got to enjoy some special treats. I saw the bag of beggin strips come out at some point!DSC04140 All of these parties used to almost always be at my house. I guess I have passed the torch to my brother in law Joe the bachelor! His house is bigger….he really enjoys it and he’s a great host! A truly blessed day and boy did I hit the couch when I got home because I ate way too much!!!! Back on the diet today! What good cooks we have in the family! Hope you all had a wonderful Easter too. I will get caught up saying hello to ya’ll soon enough.

Sounds like a great time. There's something to be said for passing the torch to another's home. You'll enjoy it more.

There is nothing better than spending time and having celebrations with family and frineds. So happy to hear a great time was had by all. That cake looked real yummy. I, too, like having get-togethers at anyone's house but mine (too small) (less work) Hugs, Kathleen

Hi Debbie and it does sound like you had a great time! Food and friends - so much joy! Oh, please know I'm only teasing when I speak of myself, especially the perfection part! I'm so very far from it and you're so very right, the only perfect one is our Lord. I'm just a silly and get carried away most of the time.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)
