Silver Anniversary Part Two...

Thursday, July 5, 2012

I hope everyone had a great day yesterday.
Did you see some fireworks?

We went to my sister's house and had a wonderful time AND
a little surprise celebration to celebrate
our 25th Wedding Anniversary!

If you remember, the Colonel was MIA for our anniversary
AGAIN...the third year in a row, but who's counting?
We had a nice celebration and visit with family.

Here are a few pictures of our celebration.

The Colonel and I...

Amazing cake pops made by my sister-in-law Beth.
She just started her company, Behr Pops, and these 
are just as delicious as they are pretty.

You can join her on Facebook HERE
and see all the pretty cake pops she creates...

Bride and Groom cake pops.
She had these bagged as little favors to take home.
So sweet...

My sister made a delicious ice cream cake.
You can find the recipe HERE...

AND they gave us our first piece of pewter...

I love pewter and have been wanting to start a collection.

Tomorrow is Foodie Friends Friday!

I would love for YOU to join and link up a recipe
that you enjoy preparing for your family.

Tomorrow I will also be announcing the TOP THREE recipes
from last week's party.

Please come by tomorrow and join us!
If you can't contribute a recipe, you can still have fun and visit
