Maranda & Lane invited us over for a quiet dinner at their home. It was so nice. She knows that I never get coconut cake because no one likes it but me so she made me one. She made her daddy some fudge that was out of this world. They fixed one of the best dinners I have ever eaten. She had Pork Tenderloin Roast, Squash casserole (YUM), mac & cheese, butter beans (my favorite) and collard greens & cornbread. It was wonderful.
Maybe they will share some recipes!
Maranda & Lane went off into another room and came back with this beautiful cake and told me to blow out the candles.
I blew and blew and blew and called Randy for help. They had those candles that keep flickering when you blow them out. Their house is so beautiful. They still are remodeling and have lots to do. They haven't purchased their blinds yet so there is still plastic on the window. They have worked so hard and it is gorgeous. They have a separate formal dining room but it is not finished yet so we ate in the kitchen. It was so nice, quiet and peaceful and you can feel "love" in their home. Lane helps her with everything. He treats her like a queen and she treats him like a king. They are such a blessing to our family.
Thank you Maranda & Lane!
Then we went to our granddaughter, "Angel's" basketball game. It was so good. Of course they won. Actually they haven't lost any. She scored and played a great game. I know that I have not mentioned everything and everyone that did something for my birthday but I want to say thank you to everyone. You made my day! I don't think I have ever had so many calls, cards, emails, & messages than yesterday! Thank you. So much for keeping my birthday quiet!!! I love being 55 years old. It is the best time of my whole life! Seriously.
