Stephanie Ruth Wilson was born on January 8, 1977 at 5:17 p.m, weighing in at 7 lbs 1 oz, 21 inches long......YES, also Elvis Presley's birthday. She was going to be named "Tiffany" but seconds after she was born, I looked into her eyes and saw that she was a "Stephanie". I asked Mike if he liked that name and he said yes, and her name was changed just like that!
I had her a Family Birthday dinner celebration last night. I was so proud of the meal I prepared that took me most of the day to time everything to have ready by 5:00. I made steak & bean burritos with ALL the trimmings. Let me tell you, if you are looking for Great Salsa and Guacamole, go to Costco. It is by far the best and cheapest. I made spanish rice and at the request of hubby, a pistachio torte.
Steph was never a cake lover, so she requested that I make my famous Lemon Bars. As you can see by the picture, I stacked them on a cake plate and added the most adorable candles that looked like a present, party hat & piece of cake.
After dinner we visited and played with the kids and had a great time. The older boys "Jeff & Nate" got out the 3 large bins of legos and played at the dining room table. Noah & Carter love when "Unkie Nake" helps them build unique things with the legos that he had as a little boy.
Steph opened up her gifts and was very happy with them. I am glad everything went so well cause she is so deserving of a special day, just for her.
As a mother, I feel so blessed to have her as my daughter. I couldn't ask for more.
Doesn't she look amazing at almost "31"? Her and Jeff are the cutest couple. They both get better looking with age.
