Before I get to some pictures of our birthday celebration this weekend and a yummy recipe, I thought I'd share these pics to honor a local legend.
Here in Pennsylvania, there's a lot of mourning going on for Penn State's Joe Paterno, who passed away on Sunday morning. Wherever you live, I'm sure you've heard about it. It's all over the news. And regardless of some of the negative publicity surrounding Joe Pa in the last months, it seemed he was loved by everyone who new him.

happier day. He's a big
Penn State Fan.

Okay, now on to the birthday partay this weekend. We celebrated 3 birthdays...
|Hubs turned.....well ....fifty something. I've lost count!!|
|Ashley turned 20. Can you imagine being|
20 again?..and know what you know now??
|Son in law Steve is twenty something. Let's just|
say he can feel 30 nippin' at his heels!
Jack's Mama wouldn't give him any ice-cream cake because he didn't eat his dinner...
But when Mama wasn't looking, he snuck some of Pap Pap's cake.
I know you're thinking you could eat some of that ice-cream cake too. It was yummy.... and very sweet.
So here ya go.....this is the original recipe. I of course had to change some things.
I switched out the ice creams for chocolate and peanut butter cup because my kids don't like coffee.
