Joe and my Dad had planned a nice family & friends birthday party/bbq for ME... both of them knowing how much I enjoy get-togethers like that!! It was a day full of family, friends, LOTS of food, gifts, cake and FUN!!!
Joe made his "famous" ribs and I made my "famous" homemade mashed potatoes and fresh green beans.... I know, I shouldn't have cooked on my day, but since Joe really wanted those potatoes...and since he did peel them (all 10 lbs. of them) for me....well, I just did it!! And my dad my my favorite cake of all.... yellow cake with chocolate frosting...yummy!!!
Some pictures of our day...........
Joe and I waiting for the crowd to show up:
My dad worked up a sweat watching Joseph ride his bike:
....waiting for Joe to finish cooking.....
.....his famous ribs (and WOW are they good...I mean, great!!!)
I had to get a good picture of the kids before they ate and got all messy (yea, I'm a bit anal like that!!)
And mommy had to get a bit silly with them too........
Chowing down..... yummy, yummy!!
Happy Birthday to ME!!!! (they thought it would be funny to put 34 candles on the cake.... ha-ha)
It's all mine...don't try to take it from me!!!
Some of my gifts.... Some of my favorite things.... I love Brighton and Bath & Body Works and I love, love, love Willow Tree figurines!!!
Happy Tuesday Friends!!!!
