It’s official, our kids are 21 years old.  We celebrated with the requested meal of prime rib, baked potato, hot rolls and broccoli.

To accommodate the group, we put the extra leaves in the table.

The food smelled delicious and we were eager to enjoy it.

After the meal, we sampled some wines.

Next they blew out their candles and we sang “Happy Birthday” to them.

Blowing out their 21st birthday candles!

For dessert we had the very rich Oreo truffles, which I had arranged into a yin-yang design.

Spending time with our kids makes a day more perfect.

The electric smoker was one of Keith’s Christmas presents and today he’s smoking some cheese.  This should be interesting.

Meanwhile, on the couch, it’s naptime with the cat.  Not sure who’s enjoying it more.

Happy birthday to my brother today!  Another birth day in the family occured 136 years ago when Keith’s maternal great grandfather’s (Jacob Asbury Bullard) was born.
