the january boys

two january boys
It wouldn't be January on my blog without gazillions of birthday posts. We have many January boys right here in the house. Jacob and Dieter both have birthdays frustrating close to Christmas, but what is there to do but just go forward and make it work? We celebrated on New Year's Day.

Dieter wanted a pink cake, which my mother graciously made for him. She crushes raspberry juice into a basic buttercream frosting and it is very good. This is the cake Faith usually requests too.

And for Jacob I made a delicious ice cream cake inspired by Heather's post. I'd love to make this again--it was so yummy.

I can hardly believe that they are six and twenty-one already! Time is flying. Happy brithday Jacob and Dieter! I love you boys!

The cakes look fantastic. Even thought it is a balmy 21 here today, I still want a slice of that ice cream cake!

Love the last picture! What a little warrior.

Almost all of my immediate family growing up as well as the family I formed were born int he first half of January. We extend holidays through our tri-cultures by eating so many sesonal cakes and sweets. My son likes looking at your blog of the boy who is almost the same age.

Dieter is looking so old! Belated happy birthday to your boys. Raspberry icing, that is something I could definitely go for!
