Kat's Birthday

This weekend the fam loaded up in the green big van (what Kiddo used to call our Astro) and headed down to Kat's to celebrate (albeit a day late) her 40th birthday. And I'm not spilling the beans here, people, she confessed her age on her blog. I heard that collective gasp.

We had the best time. It's been way too long since just our families got together. Sound Man and The Bob spent the first part of the evening grillin' some mean steaks.Actually, I think The Bob did all the grilling and Sound Man just kept him company.
They love each other.

Kat made the salads while I did nothing took pictures. The kids ate croutons while we waited.
I think Fep is choking on hers!

Meanwhile, Dixie the doggie posed for me...She's lickin' her chops for summa that steak!

After we ate (of course I was too busy feedin' my face to take any pics of our wonderful meal!) we brought out the cake!If you wonder who in the world placed those candles...well...I never said I was a cake decorator.
That, along with the fact that they were melting extremely fast, made us laugh. Hard.They were pretty sad.

Fep accompanied us with her violin while we sang "Happy Birthday". This girl is good. She also played a few other selections for our listening pleasure. She tried to show Kiddo how to play. Hmmm...I think we'll stick with piano!

Then it was time for presents. Moose wanted me to see the butterfly he got for his Momma. They pay attention to their Aunt Heather's blog, too!
Then Fep gave her some sweet chocolate, so Kat gave her a sweet kiss. But the highlight of the evening was THE card.We opened that Hoops and Yoyo card (I lurve Hoops and Yoyo!)probably ten times during the evening. It was just so catchy...

After the hoopla settled down, we adjourned to the dining room to play games. First up, Farkle. My husband needs to work on his photography skills.

The girls won both games (I won Farkle and Kat and I as a team won the next game, Pictionary) so I guess my husband decided he didn't want to take a picture of us drawing our hearts out. Oh well.

It was so good to spend the evening with them. Our families love each other and have since the mid 90's, before any of our children were born. Kat and I have a friendship like I've never had. I cherish it!Happy (late) Birthday, Kat! I love you!
