NOT ONE BUT TWO (2).........FINALLY!!!!!.

The first finally - After waiting patiently for 4 snowy days, and ice covered streets, Aric got his Family Birthday celebration dinner at the place of his choice, Red Robbins. 

 Since Aric, Marc & Deann live in Owasso, north of Tulsa;  Jacque & Benny live in Broken Arrow, east of Tulsa: Mickey & I live in Coweta, southeast of Tulsa;  Dave & Suzette live in Jenks, south of Tulsa, & Jessica is the only true Tulsan, it took a little doing getting us all together because of the Blizzard we have February 1st and more snow on the third. 

 The 12 year old honoree - with the Red Robbin mascot.  Yet, it was a thumbs up occasion.

 The balloon, the staff Happy Birthday song and the birthday sundae.
 Opening the presents and cards with money presents.  Aric's big gift from his dad, which he had already received, was a PS3
Aric, dad Marc & step-mom Deann.
 Uncle Dave & Aunt Suzette arrive.
 Benny & Aunt Jacque.
 Six of the 10 of us that were there:  Suzette, Mickey, Susan, Aric, Marc & cousin Jessica.
Lots of good eating, fun & laughs.

The second finally - 
 Not only was Cousin Jessica able to make it because she didn't have to be to work until 4:30 Sunday but.........I FINALLY presented her with the Prayer Shawl I had made her.  If you remember, on Christmas when everyone else got theirs, Jessica only got to see hers as a work in progress on the loom.
The final result - prayer shawl #7 made and prayed over as doing so for my family members. 

It was a wonderful time of celebrating this find young man & we always love getting together as a family.

Happy Birthday late to your gs.
It sure does look like fun and I was glad to hear that you finally got to get together.
It looks like you have as much snow on your deck as we do.
Ready for a big melt down.!!!! It sure is not going to happen today. It is -9 with the Windchill of -26,
I really do need warmth and soon.
Have a great day and stay warm.
