for most birthdays, jim gets a german chocolate cake…. but this time, he got chocolate…. and his new favorite hobby: golf!!! imagine, what could be better at 65? while living in new orleans, he got to practice this leisurely sport without interruption or worry. so naturally, when he came home to celebrate his birthday, we decided to decorate his cake with “grass”. it was our first time making it! the frosting tip was easy to use, but, sheesh!!! does it take a toll on your hands! the golf ball was a delicious ferrero roche coconut candy that we all argued over before one of the boys snatched it! as always, we celebrated tia gloria’s birthday as well. we had a special treat that alyssa and her family were able to join us. love it when we can have the extended family join us to party!
