Celebrating a Speed Limit
First you get your favorite friends together. And one of them hosts your party and does all the work.
Now that's what I'm talkin about!!
and you mix it up right, 10 grown ups and 10 little people.
because the big people need something to look at besides each other and all of the food!
excuse me, we thought about a picture after scooping some out. This is blueberry salad. There is really nothing salad about it. It should be a dessert! yummmy. I can't tell you how to make it. From the first time my friend made it 10 years ago I have refused to find out. I might gain a 100 pounds if I could make this stuff. I know it has jello and blueberry pie filling in the bottom and some kind of nutty crunchy cream cheese topping.... it will definitely make you fat.
gather round and EAT. We had barbecued chicken marinated in cilantro and onions, smoked baby back ribs that fell off the bones, home made macaroni and cheese, baked beans with bacon bell peppers and onions in them, cucumber and tomato salad with pesto dressing, fresh home made bread, home churned butter.....
and Tres Leche cake. Whew my stomach was exploding with all the love. Isn't this cake gorgeous? It was so delicious. We also had a little platter of cupcakes for the little people.
who ate them up.
and wore some of what they ate.
They had mercy on me and did not put candles on the cake in multiple quantities. I told them a forest fire like that would give me another asthma attack.
the kids played, both young,
and then maybe the best gift of all. One of my friends really plays well and he brought a laundry basket full of sheet music and began playing and singing.
everybody gathered around and joined in. Little babies get the bouncy knees to the music which is so cute.
and the slightly older ones get a bit excited...
and just boogie down!
Which I think is just bringing them up right! Teach them to have joy with all ages of people.
It was the best birthday party ever.
Thanks to my friends.
