Making Room for B

My Grandma Beulah celebrated her 79th birthday on this past Saturday.  It was a "Girl's Day" celebration filled with loads of laughter and food.  Who attended?  My grandma (of course), my mom, two of her sisters, and two grandchildren (my cousin and me).  Now, in all fairness, my uncle did cook the meats and leave it at my grandma's house since he was unable to attend, but for the first real time that I can remember, it was just us ladies!

We intended to take my grandma to the Crepe Myrtle Festival in town, but it rained out, so  we spent our time indoors.

Barbequed chicken cooked on the grill, spareribs, tossed salad, green beans, baked beans, an amazing squash casserole (I will smuggle the recipe), sweet tea, lemonade, and for dessert, these delectable devil food cake cupcakes with heath topping.

It was great to see my grandma on her actual birthday (although it's a different day that we've celebrated in the past - I guess those midwives didn't always get the birthdates straight back then - lol).  It was also wonderful to thank her, in-person, for the lovely gift of her sewing machine, which I'm affectionately calling "B".

Just need to put her in the shop and get her all cleaned up and ready to go!

Happy Crafting,
