Countdown to Birthday: Birthday!

The sisters can't eat cake together this year, but we sure can enjoy looking at pictures of the cake Mom made Catherine last year. It makes me want to play with the cats during a power outage (and also eat some scrumptious carrot cake). Hey, let's light the kerosene lamp and roast marshmallows in the fireplace!

The little birdies were used on birthday cakes when Mom was little. This is their second appearance on the blog. What was their first, you ask? Why, it was the inaugural post! 

Many happy returns of the day, sister!
