Guess Who Showed Up?

Our son, his family, mom, and I celebrated Sweetz birthday at Bravo in Greensboro. It's worth the drive to enjoy their scrumptious lasagna.  Everyone seemed to have a good time.  Our favorite waiter (Markus) is no longer working there  :(   but we were assigned to Brandon for the evening.  Believe me, he's not on the same playing field as Markus, but what can you do?  Well, we might pass on going there again - there are many other places to choose. 

I gave Sweetz a Lowes gift card in the most darling teeny tool box. 

It's hanging on the tree now - decided to use it as an ornament until I need it again.

I made Sweetz a Paula Deen red velvet cake for his birthday.  Lots of work but worth it to have such a delicious cake.

Here it is before we cut into it today.  It has melted marshmallows, nuts, and coconut in the icing.  As well as a lb of conf sugar, a stick of butter, etc.  The cake is rich but he's worth it - well, at least once a year.

We've been invited to a friend's surprise birthday party Wednesday night.  Ralph was born on Dec 25.  His family always celebrate it on a day other than Christmas Day.  Sounds like a good plan.  This year it will be a Shhhhhprise. 

The kids had their Christmas plays this evening at church.  The littlest ones portrayed the Christmas story complete with costumes and memorized lines.  Wow, they did real well.  Several even sang and I didn't notice any stage fright.  The older youth also did a play  with costumes but no lines - all done in pantomime with a few signs.  I thought the church was decorated beautifully this morning but it had to be rearranged for the youth plays.  I still captured a few pictures even in the dim light after everyone left the sanctuary for the party in the Fellowship Hall. 

And guess who showed up???

Even the secretary's office door had a unique wreath decorated with tape, scissors, staple remover, pencil, calculator, paper clips, etc.  Toooo cute!

Merry Christmas to all my readers.
