Tom turned 19, and celebrated the actual day at The Institute.
A few days later, Pippo turned 16, with 8 boys/young men at the house to play poker and video games.
Pip's "cake" is a giant
Twix Kit-Kat made with Italian wafer cookies and melted chocolate chips. It was fun/harrowing to make, and it didn't cut well. The cookies just crumbled apart, so the guys that were interested really just stood around the platter and ate handsful of cookie or chocolate. Frankly, we all did. <blush>
Last, but not least, Meggie turned 13 this weekend! After many years, I have no children that aren't teens or older. <sob> It's not a Party Year for her, so we had a simple celebration. (Around here, you get a party on your 6, 12, and 16th birthdays to save Mom's sanity!)
She did get to go to a party at a friend's house, and her friend made pink cupcakes for her, so it was like having a party! (Can you tell I have a little Mom-guilt for not having a party?)
I can not believe that my three babies are 13, 16, and 19! I think I blinked.
And with that, Sugar Season is finally, finally, over. And don't even mention that St. Valentine's Day is in 3 weeks!
