Elizabeth makes the birthday cakes for the family birthdays. This is the cake she made for Gerry. The kids had been in Old Sacramento earlier in the day and Jason found these candles. They all thought these were appropriate for their father's cake.This is the cake she made for me. After Gerry blew out his candles, I took the candles out and put them on my cake. It was a celebration for his 70th birthday; Elizabeth makes a cake for me too since my birthday is 3 days later. The cakes are always chocolate. If the birthday person wants something else, they have to request it.
Our youngest granddaughter, Emma Louise Yniguez, age 20 months. She is sitting on her momma's lap, daughter Joyce. Emma is an absolute delight.
I made two pans of Pineapple Chicken, we also had rice, salad and corn. We used the clubhouse at our mobile home park for the party.
I thought I should update my introduction to reflect what is important to me at this time in my life. For years I enjoyed making handmade cards...I have baskets full of cards I've made and kept. I still make our yearly Christmas cards. My passion these days is sewing and quilting. I grew up surrounded by beautiful fabrics. I have found it is something I thoroughly enjoy. Sharing my thoughts of what is going on in my life through this blog is also something I enjoy immensely.
