We're Celebrating 31 Years Together!

I've blogged about this group of ladies before and I'm sure there will be many more to come. This year we are celebrating 31 wonderful years together. We have been getting together every month since we graduated from high school. It was my turn to host club (as we call it) in February. We have so much fun when we get together, it's a time to get caught up on everyone's busy lives. We now have married kids and grandkids to add to the mix of the conversations that go on through out the evening. The front staircase in my front entry way seems to be the most popular spot for our group photo, we take one there every time I have club. From top to bottom there is Jan, Sharon and both Melanie's. Then there is Camille and Gayleen, Myself, Elaine and Melba. The only two missing that evening were Liz and Kaye.

Just visiting after dinner. I served Stuart's Famous Crispy Chicken, Baked Potatoes, Vegatable's in a Cloud(I'm going to share this recipe with you) and a frozen Cherry Salad. For dessert I served a yummy Ice Cream Sandwich Layered Dessert, which I will also be sharing.
These two must be getting old! They needed a sody water to help their heartburn, or did I just feed them to much? Oh what funny girl's, it's the pits to get old!

I went with the theme of It's all about "YOU" Cupcake!, so I spoiled them with a cupcake of their choice to take home. Here are a few pictures of the table decorations.
Aren't these little cupcake cups the cutest? Santa brought them to Kira and Kaitlyn for Christmas, they are really meant to be used for ice cream toppings but I used them for the frozen salad. If you are looking for something like this, Santa got them at Tai Pan, there are four to a set.
Spring time all around, even if it didn't look like it outside that night. Are you noticing my glass cupcake stand? I told you I had a fetish for glassware lately! Don't you just love the blue on top of the candlestick?

The overall view of the table.
I'll get those recipes posted for you to enjoy. Another year down, and many more ahead to enjoy with such great friends. We are so close to each other that we keep telling each other that our kids are going to have to put us in the same rest home when we become of age. Now wouldn't that be fun, the only thing is we probably wouldn't remember who each other was or what we used to do at club!
