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!

Countdown to Birthday: Day 7

Ok, so I actually only have one or two pictures of Catherine beyond the age of like six. I just didn't have time to look through all the pictures when I was in Tacoma. I know! Birthday countdown ruined! But it can't be helped now. I've decided to push on to present day. Without further ado...

Countdown to Birthday: Day 5

Let's all try to figure out why Catherine has a hunch in her pumpkin costume! Follow up: what's going on in the first and last pictures? I see an inflatable ducky Easter basket in the first and the plastic Pisa purse in the last. There's a story of some kind just waiting to be told. I wonder if Mom knows...

Countdown to Birthday: Day 3

Her hair got darker and curlier. She wore my old clothes and played with all my toys. Sisters.
