Birthday Month!

January is a big Birthday Month around here! Three birthdays to celebrate, and I haven't even taken the time to blog about them.

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!


  1. may seems to be the birthday month in my family.

    1. Isn't it funny how birthdays come in clumps? January has at least 7 birthday for our extended family. I think it has something to do with Spring Fever. ;-)

  2. Happy birthday to the gang! That Twix cake looks awesome! Standing around it with a fork seems just right for a bunch of guys (or even women). Did Meg have a pie? Faith will be 13 in February and I am having a really hard time with that as well.

    1. No, Meg did not have a pie, though it does sort of look that way! She had a yellow cake with buttercream that she frosted and decorated herself.


Thanks for dropping by! I would love to hear from you. Have a beautiful day! :-)
