35 and still HOT! :)

Rick's birthday fell on Sunday so Lisa Aurich and I decided to get our families together, like we used to do, and make him our big yummy breakfast.

The spread

Orange Cinnamon french toast with buttermilk syrup, Strawberry Cheesecake crepes with fresh strawberries, powdered sugar and Redi-whip, Lisa's famous hash browns and Regan's yummy fruit smoothies. Yummmmm

This is the face Ben makes when you tell him to smile. Ha!
After breakfast, I went home and put dinner in the oven to take over to the Aurich's later. We went to the late session of Stake Conference with our old ward, then headed back to stuff ourselves some more.
What a fun day, full of good food and good friends. It was just like the good old days, except we didn't sleep over. :)
At home that night to open presents. Happy Birthday Ricky!

Hey Jenny!
Rick is almost as old as me! Wow, now I guess I'm not the grandma, just maybe more of a big sister or something right? ha! Happy Birthday Rick!

I thought that was a special dish reserved for us. I feel so cheated on. It sucks we couldn't have had a party here for him. Happy birfday anyway. We miss you guys.
