Baby Audi

Last Monday evening we had a party for our oldest granddaughter's 22 birthday. Each member of the family gets to chose where they want to have dinner and Sarah wanted to come to our house. She used to always want to go to Red Lobster because she loves shrimp so much, but she's not wanted to go for several years. She also got to set the menu. Here's what she wanted and here's what she got:

New York steaks
Baked Potatoes with the works (butter, sour cream, scallions, cheese and bacon bits)
Asparagus
Salad with Goober Juice (Ranch dressing)
My famous garlic bread
Strawberry cake with cream cheese frosting.

Dinner was fabulous. My son BBQ'd the steaks and they were done to perfection. A good time had by all.

The highlight of the night was our great grand-baby Audi. She's 2.5 years old and talking up a storm. She's adorable and then some. Audi loved my salad. She loved the cherry tomatoes and the crackers (croutons) the very best. Great Grandpa had to go to the salad bowl and pick out those two things so she could continue eating.

Then we decided that since we had four generations present we needed to take a photograph of that too. So the short, cutie pie is Audi, then Sarah, then my son, and yep that's me.
Here's Audi cleaning up after Little Bit got a drink of water. Audi is a very neat little gal and she cleans up any messes she makes, or that anyone else makes for that matter. We liked that a lot.
We so enjoy having the family over. They bring such great pleasure.

  4. How cool that she picks grandma & grandpa's house for her birthday meal. I love it (and happy birthday to her)!!

    I like the 4 gen. pic. That's a keeper!!

    The little one's precious, cute, and if she cleans too, you've got a real mint on your hands (well, even if she didn't clean...you'd have a little beauty on your hands). Glad everyone had a sweet visit. :)
