Before Christmas….

 ….we celebrate birthdays!

That’s right!  It was 49 years ago that we welcomed TWO babies instead of the expected ONE on December 23, one day before our due date of the 24th.  Muncho Mom and Country Girl joined their 20-month old big sister, City Girl.  

There are a few dietary concerns to be considered these days, and Muncho Mom came up with this specially-baked cake….

It was perfect with peppermint stick ice cream! 

Now….it’s on to the next celebration!

Merry, merry wishes to all!


  1. That birthday cake looks fabulous; pairing it with peppermint stick ice cream sounds delightful. Happy Christmas, Nellie!

  2. Nadolig Llawen Nellie

  3. A perfect looking cake and I'm sure delicious as well.
    A Happy Christmas to you and your family.

  4. Well, Sister, you know how I feel about chocolate, and a dose of peppermint just makes it even better, IMO. Sure wish I could join you for a slice or two, but I'm probably better off to stay away from such deliciousness. I'm sure it's wonderful! Merry Christmas to you and your fabulous family! Love you ALL!

  5. You were a busy mama with 3 little ones to care for at the same time. That's a beautiful cake.


  6. Hope you had a fun celebration!

  7. Wow! Christmas babies! That is wonderful!!! Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!
