Your greatness is not what you have, it's what you give.

My daughter celebrated her 30th birthday on Wednesday so we drove down to visit her and help her celebrate with a dinner with her friends at Maggiano's in King of Prussia, PA. She and her husband, THE Phil Collins (inside joke), had a good time, as did the rest of us. P.S. Amanda wore the Ishbel shawl I made for her birthday.
The chocolate cake was decadent and delicious!
Moose was so happy to see his friend Ben...
And Ben's little brother Carter.
Poppop had a chance to play with Moose too.
Danielle, Phil, Amanda, Rita and Tim stopped eating long enough to smile. There was plenty of good food to go around.
Randy, Holly, Landon, Moose and I enjoyed the Italian menu too.
No one spoke when the cake was passed around. Too busy stuffing our faces!
I returned from the weekend visit only to be greeted with a delicious homemade dinner and this beautiful and absolutely scrumptious dessert. My son, feeling very creative, made a Peppermint Mocha Cheesecake using a limited edition Kahlua that has peppermint flavoring. The chicken, salad with pears and goat cheese, and potatoes au gratin were very good too but the cheesecake was evilly delicious!
It's good to have kids who know how to cook!
Now I really need to go on a diet!!!
