60th Birthday Happenings!



                                                 It snowed 2 1/2 inches at our place.

 The top four photos are from my front porch. The neighborhood kids were having a blast climbing to the top end of our street ...to slide down on their makeshift sleds.:)


 These pics are of my back yard. The snowdrift at the bottom of the pic is actually the top of our grill.LOL 

 Since we were snowed in and didn't have any way to get a cake from anywhere. Christy made a home made Chocolate chip cookie cake for the five of us!! I already had a sugar free cake mix waiting to be mixed and baked ..and she made cupcakes for me using that. She had bought a can or two of chocolate icing a while back and had it in her cupboard. Jim held a candle up for me and the family sang happy birthday to me and I made a wish and blew it out.LOL

   Now..to the reason I am posting this today...Jim had asked me way before my birthday this last Tuesday..where I wanted  him to take me for my Birthday dinner. I told him Texas Roadhouse!! Well..it snowed really hard and during the snowy days I had caught a cold and didn't feel well...so we waited for me to get to feeling better. We decided to go today and I had found a Special in my email for a free Cactus Blossom (onion) and that today was another special. An 11 oz Sirloin steak, two sides, and unlimited dinner rolls and peanuts! $10.99!! The dinner was AWESOMELY DELICIOUS! I couldn't have asked for anything better!!! Everything was cooked just the way we all wanted it. ( My son Robby and his wife Liz, Christy, Jim and I ) We all LOVED our meals! It took a few days to get there ,,,hehe..but well worth the trip.:)
