special day for grandpa frank!

Happy Birthday Grandpa Frank!!! your favorite grandson misses you lots! fly home soon.
ps, yes we know that Australia is spelled wrong, oh well.
ps, thanks to jayne magleby (one of max's girlyfriends) for the birthday shout out idea.


  1. i love that you are doing the baby birthday shout outs! they are the best. although, beware, family will start to EXPECT them on their birthday and be sad if you forget. Ha!

    Here is the recipe....


    8 cups spinach
    1 lb bowtie pasta, cooked
    3 cups cooked shredded chicken (i boil the chicken to cook it)
    1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds
    1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
    1/2 cup chopped green onions

    1 cup olive oil
    2/3 cup rice vinegar
    6 Tbs sugar
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    1/4 cup soy sauce

    Mix 1/2 to 2/3 cup of dressing with pasta and chicken. Chicken and pasta can be cooked the night before and soaked in dressing overnight if desired. When ready to serve, mix remaining ingredients with dressing and combine with chicken and pasta. Best served when chilled.

  2. I just love Max so much! He is soooo stinkin cute!!!

  3. I love his cute smile! Really Jessie, you've got one cute kid.

  4. That was the best b'day wish ever, even if he did eat the b'day card!

  5. I can't get over what a good looking kid Max is. I just want to squeeze him every time I see him!!! Cute shout out idea!!!
