Family Celebrations

The Blizzard of 09 here in Oklahoma kept us cold, digging out, and spending some time together sans Internet. It is not that we did not have access, but when you find yourself with extra time to spend together, surfing the net is not near as fun as movies with the family or just hanging out.

We celebrate two birthdays quite close together. December 31 is Tommie’s birthday – our youngest. This was the big 21st. She has been battling h pylori and did not get to enjoy her Thanksgiving meals. We asked Rusty to deep fry a couple, added the potatoes and dressing. Mixed in some green beans and bacon wrapped little smokeys. Invited some of her friends and had a good time. Jason, her husband, was lead planner and he did a great job with the cupcake stands.

Today is Patty’s birthday. We don’t publicize the number. We are going to dinner and spend an evening out in the continuing cold. But together, ready for the mushy stuff, we will be warm. Happy Birthday Patty!
