January Birthdays

After taking down Christmas decorations it can be somewhat depressing. Your house seems so barren, there are fewer parties to attend, and not as many good things to eat. That is, unless you know a lot of people who have January birthdays!

We have been lucky enough to have three birthdays to celebrate in our family! Grandpa celebrated his on January 9th, Aunt Erin was on January 10th, and Uncle Paul celebrated his on January 23rd. Here are some pictures of the parties that were held for each.

Delicious homemade chocolate cake by Mom (Ben got a finger in before "Happy Birthday" was sung.) Thank you to Jill and Nick for bringing the crowd-favorite Graeter's Black Raspberry Chip.

Earlier in the day we were down at the Arnoff to see "Wicked," then at Benihana's for dinner.

Louie wasn't quite as excited as Uncle Nick that they both were wearing a pirate's favorite sweater (ARRRGyle!).

Sorry, Erin. I wasn't on my game that night. I got a handful of pictures, but most aren't worth revisiting. The culprit may be in the picture...fabulous Orange Dream cake, though!

Grandpa giving Charlie a zerbert. Does anyone else call it that? Not sure if that's how it's spelled, but ever since the days of "The Cosby Show" our family has called it that. I wish you could see Charlie's sweater--it has a furry skunk and says "Lil' Stinker." Too cute!

Benny & Louie helping Uncle Paul blow out the candles on the-best-German-Chocolate-cake -ever, made by Aunt Cassie.

So, if you're looking for a good month to have a baby, try around April! Everyone will appreciate it.
