January Birthdays, a Grand Celebration!

We had a big celebration at our daughter's house on Sunday and not just because the SeaHawks won either.  Three members of the family have birthdays in January, so DD#2 hosted a grand celebration.  She also made a spectacular cake!



Max had requested a digger cake, and here it is, a bulldozer, complete with a pile of dirt. (Crushed chocolate graham crackers.)  It was delicious, too, as all that frosting had brownies beneath it!


Here are all but one of the Seattle cousins. Max turned 3 last weekend and Katie, in the plaid shirt, is officially celebrating today.



And Daddy got to attend the BIG game on his day and watch them win! That's not a bad way to celebrate, is it?



And I gave this scarf to Grandma S., who was quite interested in the scarf I had given DD for her birthday. Hope she liked it!  Gotta run; today is volunteer day. Bye.

What a range of ages in the cousins! I like the variegated color of Grandma's scarf.

I LOVE that cake! I'm going to keep that in mind for a couple of young men who may one day request a "digger", too. I'm sure she loved that scarf! blessings ~ tanna

Wow that's a lot of celebration! That is heart warming. The digger cake is too sweet. I love that he asked for one, and was able to get it too.

Love that cake! And glad you posted a picture because I would never have figured out what "Digger Cake" was.
