|Here I am with Mr. Robert this morning. A happier little guy. Everyday we send Daddy a picture of us. This was today's.|
We celebrate this milestone birthday by having all of our two families over for a BBQ. Before I share some pictures from the weekend, here is a fabulous Potato Salad that I made. This is a family recipe from my Grandma Vera ( my Mom's Mother). You simply have to try it!
2 bunches of long green onions
3 ribs of chopped celery
1 drained can of black whole pitted olives
1 cup of Mayonnaise
1/4 cup of Mustard
1/2 cup of pickle relish or 3 pickles diced small
1/2 cup of pickle juice
salt, pepper and Garlic salt to taste
Boil potatoes the night before. Drain and cool in fridge.
Chop up all ingredients
Now season potato mixture to your own liking. Fresh cut-up dill makes it just scrumptious!
Mix both bowls together now to include potatoes and dressing.
Chill over night.
( I have found that the red potatoes make for a creamier consistency)
Then, we bought the best, sweetest cherries!!
Robbie and I made Daddy this fun filled tasty treat Candy bar birthday sign!
!Here is the little saying on the card that we made, incase you want to make your own.
We were going to give you a Whoppers amount of cash for you birthday, but the money slipped through our Butterfingers. We didn't have anything to sell and it wasn't Payday. We didn't think you would want a Kit Kat or a pet Turtle. A trip to New York or an Orbit around the Milky way wouldn't be appropriate. We do want to wish you Mounds of Almond Joy.
As you eat this card, we hope you don't Rolover and get a tummy ache. If you do, we promise not to Snicker.
You are our Marine and our Hero. Mommy thinks you are one Hot Tamale!
We love you to Pieces! The BEST is yet to come.
May God Bless You.
Your Three Musketeers,
Sarah, Robbie and Maverick the cat
You can make one of these cards at home also. You just need a poster board
and the following candies.

My Mom made a cute suggestion! Wouldn't it be adorable to give this card with a gift card to the movies?! :) So cute.

|At the end of the day we all went down to the beach. Here is our little family watching the sunset.|
Rich left for training for a month or so last week. Here is Robbie trying on his Daddy's helmet. Ha ha, I know I'm a Marine wife and I am suppose to know the proper name for this hat, but for now we will just call it a hat. Simply because I can not remember what it is called. :)
Have a Wonderful Day!
