The Birthday and the Beef-Eater

Well today we were treated out to dinner after church for my birthday! What a blessing since I was tired from our busy weekend and still fighting my cold. No planning, no cooking, no cleaning:)

We all really enjoyed our meal..... but Lydia really was the buffet machine!! She's at the "picky eater" stage but we've learned from experience: "When she eats, she puts it DOWN!" And this afternoon she feasted on beef tips....really.... I gave her a toddler serving, and another, and gave her Anna's serving (that Anna didn't eat) and then she asked for more, so I made a trip to the buffet! I think little tykes eat free at this restaurant..... but today Lydia should have paid!! How do you think she keeps her girlie figure and chubby cheeks???

I wanted to get some pictures of my birthday meal.... so here I am eating my favorite "chocolate delight" dessert..... definitely need to start that workout plan in the morning:)

As you can see I look exhausted that's from too many late nights, busy days and fighting a cold...although I DON'T think I really feel as bad as I look in that picture.... and it's my husband's photography he's a one shot guy:)

Oh, and I must thank the "sisters in Crime" for their "Happy Birthday" which silenced the dining area and totally embarrased me..... although walking out a gentleman asked Anna if it was her birthday:) Gotta watch those retired teachers especially when they're together!! Love you, Susie and Lynn! And thanks Bill and Susie for the birthday lunch!

And for those interested in my age....let's just say I'm still in my 20's...though not for long:)

I usually remember your b-day but my aging mind failed me this year. I remember the party Brian threw for you the first year you were married. Happy belated birthday!

Happy birthday belated and all the very best! I am sorry my wishes are coming late, but I did not know it was your birthday. Hope you had a nice day. When was it exactly? My sister's birthday was on 23rd.
