The Birthday Party for Mimi

Saturday we celebrated Mimi's Birthday here in Tuscaloosa. It has been a long time since Adam and I have entertained. We loved having Mimi, Papa, Emy, Grifin and Xander over for dinner. It was Xander's first road trip and first time at Aunt Carrie and Uncle Adam's house. We made pork tenderloin BBQ sandwiches, loaded mashed potatoes and salad. For dessert we helped Mimi polish off her polka dot chocolate cake from Edgar's. Noah was particularly interested in that endeavor. We had fun celebrating Mimi and surrounding her with he family big and small. Mimi, Noah, Charlie playing race cars!

No table setting is complete until you have the perfect racecars to compliment the setting!

Isn't he adorable?

Thanks for the post AND the celebration. It was a sweet night. I AM wondering how I ever enjoyed a birthday without race cars attending before..........or GRANDCHILDREN!
