There were no special plans, other than to watch the football game and eat good food. My Mom and brother Mark, drove out to Gardena early this morning to the best deli ever. They have been going there since my folks were kids. They went to school with the people who own the deli, and have been making the trek into LA for these delicious torpedo sandwiches for for over 50 years. They were nice enough to pick a few up for us too, and they delivered them, along with a huge pan of Drew's favorite dish. My Mom's homemade Mac N Cheese!
The game was never very exciting, except for at the end of the second quarter, when my numbers were to be the winning numbers on the pool. But those darn Broncos scored a TD and took my money away!
None of our three kids likes birthday cake. I always tried to come up with interesting alternatives to cake for their birthdays. I have made cookie and fruit pizzas, bownie sundaes, trifle, puddings, and various other types of sweets, that were not cake. One particular favorite was a glazed donut tower. For Drew, we did a repeat of that one. Only it was a variety of various donuts.
Looking at Drew is just like looking at my husband when he was that age. Happy Birthday son. We love you!
I did a bit more sewing this weekend too. I made a couple more baby blankets. The first one is for a new baby boy.
He is such a handsome boy. Sometimes a bit of a naughty boy. Often forgetting his manners when people come to visit. He jumps like a 3 month old puppy, and his 85 pound bulk can knock you down! He will charge you like a herd of stampeding longhorn, wanting nothing more than to cover you in licks and kisses. Oh how I love this dog!!!
Time to watch Downton. Over and Out.
