Happy 90th Birthday Jinny!

Sunday July 7th. 2013 was my stepmom's 90th birthday! So we had a party and a family get together.

We got off to a rocky start with my dad who was walking around complaining, yelling and stressing, but that's just dad. He was fine after I told him to go sit down and visit with everyone and that this was for Jinny not him. So he gave me a dirty look and...Well from the video you can see he had a really good time!
I am glad that it is over though. What with all the planning and prepping nothing turns out perfect anyway, but it was good to get together, see family and friends that we haven't seen in awhile, good food, laughs, and video (Skype) with Jinny's daughter, Val and her husband, Armand, who live in OR and couldn't make it down for the party.

Happy Birthday Jinny! We hope you enjoyed it and we wish you many happy years to come!

And for anyone that wants to know...
Here is the recipe for the ice cream

2 cups whipping cream (not cool whip or any pre made stuff)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tbs vanilla or flavoring of your choice


Mix whipping cream until stiff peaks form
fold in flavoring and sw. cond. milk
And freeze!

I made banana, strawberry, and vanilla ice cream for the party, so if you want banana ice cream mash 2 ripe bananas and add along with the other ingredients to the whipped cream.

I used about a cup of fresh strawberries (mashed), for the strawberry ice cream, but next time I think I will use frozen strawberries.
