B is for Birthday Blessings!

Two of our sons and our new daughter-in-law have birthdays in January (15, 16, 19) along with a nephew, brother and niece (16, 22, 25). On Friday night last we had an early birthday dinner celebration for our oldest, Josh.

Since we were having a couple Russian dishes for the main meal the table was set in a Russian theme.

We had Loppsha (Russian Noodle Soup) for our starter.

Our main dish was Golubstzi (phonetic spelling of the Russian pronunciation) for cabbage rolls. This photo is from another time we had this dish.  I forgot to take a new photo on Friday night.

Our son and daughter in law were celebrated in Northeastern Washington, too. We couldn’t be there but they sent us this photo from their celebration with their Birthday Cookie!

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26 (ESV)

I’m linking up to ABC Wednesday started by Mrs. Nesbitt and administrated by Roger and a team of volunteers. Thank you!

  1. Our extended families were never as large (as blessed) as yours … but when our kids were small we lived near all of both families in our home town in Eastern Washington. Bill’s “side” celebrated family birthdays once a month and I think there were at least two to celebrate every month. Good memories.

  2. You set a gorgeous table, Ellen! How fun! We have lots of birthdays, too. I feel as if I am filling cart after cart for the grands on Amazon. I hope you are staying warm and enjoying your January still! (BIG HUG!)

  3. Loved your idea of using Babuska dolls to go along with the Russian food. I have a nice collection of them and can’t wait to do this the next time I prepare a Russian meal for the family.
