And this wasn't even everything!
Pecan, Egg Custard and Cheesecake...and I somehow missed the Pumpkin Pie!
These cookie bars rocked my world...
We also took a little time to sing "Happy Birthday" to Bob. Bob was my Grandpa Gus's best friend and has had that seat at family dinners for as far back as I can remember. He's just another member of the family and it was great to be able to celebrate with him.Annie Laurie's. Laurie was in and it's always so much fun to talk to her. I've already shown you my cow creamer, but I didn't have the bucket where I could get a good picture. (I know, buckets are terribly fascinating...)
But what is significant is that we needed a new bucket so that we could make this.
I didn't get any pictures because I forgot both my cameras, but in the evening I went down to my cousins for even more family dinner. I was totally stuffed by bedtime on Thursday, let me tell you. I've mentioned before that I am not a Black Friday shopper, so I hung out around the house and watched movies and whatnot on Friday. Saturday, I went over to Mom and Dad's because all the othe kids were gathering for a little of Dad's chili.
But Dad wasn"t the only cook in town...
And the finished product wasn't so bad either!
Not to say that Boyfriend wasn't busy doing some cooking of his own. Check out his cheesy breadsticks!
Meanwhile, my mama was making cupcakes with Hershey's Chocolate Buttercream Icing! There are no words for how I feel about these cupcakes. I totally could have eaten the whole batch.
I know this has already been a super long post but I wanted to share a couple of pictures before I finished up. Even though it has been cold and somewhat rainy here, I was amazed to see that Mom's knockout rose still had new blooms on it! It was too pretty to pass up.
It was a great weekend, just too short! (Unlike this post!)
