It was Super Sunday (as Lucas called it) and we were combining the football game with Nick and Cody’s 19th birthdays.
Homer fired up the loader and moved a lot of snow so our guests would have some place to park. It’s just been too cold for me to run the 4-wheeler.
While he was outside I was inside frantically cooking… I wanted to get everything done so I could watch the game. Here’s what we had….
Bam Bam Potato Salad
Veggies and Dip
Snacks, kiwi and grapes
Honey BBQ Wings
Chicken Enchiladas (two pans)
Tisha made some guacamole dip
And guests…. they were the best part. Lucas, John, Bridgette, Nick, Jared….
Justise, Olivia, Tisha, Jadyn, Homer…
Kevin (Nick, Jared)
Grandpa Hutch, Grandma Debbi and the rest of the house full. We had so much fun…even threw a few games of ping pong!
Jan. 29th was Cody’s birthday and Feb. 7th will be Nick’s. It’s their 19th…. I still see them as ten! Since we were already having a house full for the game we decided to celebrate their birthdays. We had a feeling the HEX wasn’t going to let Emily come (in 20 years there hasn’t been a holiday/birthday that he hasn’t cast some kind of negative vibe on)… but getting everyone together two weekends in a row is tough…people are busy. What kind of message is he sending to his kids when I let her attend the WSM’s Christmas party on my week, but she isn’t allowed come a mile down the road to have cake with her brother for his birthday? We originally asked for the whole day without response so we then asked for just an hour. Nope. The wicked in his heart trumps any sense of family a normal person would have. The best part? She sat home all day doing nothing and so wanted to be here. There are years of stories like this that my kids haven't forgotten….
I baked two cheese cakes for something different. We had strawberries for topping.
Our temperatures warmed up considerably. It’s +27* here on the hill right now. Last night the weather change made for an interesting line in the clouds.
Well, now it is time for clean-up. I was entirely too tired last night to even think about it…it was a full day for sure.
