Surviving Yet Another Natal Anniversary Topped With A Maraschino Cherry Cake, Too!

I like birthdays. I’d like  them even more if I didn’t always end up being another year older after each one. Well, to be honest I’ll admit to being born on September 5. We needn’t go into the actual year … suffice to say the #1 hit song at the time was Over The Rainbow from some movie that had just opened.

Anyway, we have always had a lot of family birthdays in September. (I was born the day after my mother’s birthday and I was always hearing about how she spent Labor Day in the hospital and how it was no picnic.) Currently we have three family birthdays in September and we usually celebrate them with one super birthday with my youngest brother’s family. This year with celebrated with splashing in the pool and a super barbecue. And after a brief after dining break …DSC01520

And a somewhat one sided fight at that!

Then it was time to open gifts and eat birthday cake.  But first, photos of my great nephews and niece.

Good golly, we have such cute kids in the family!  But finally … the cake!

My sister-in-law outdid herself by creating a super chocolate maraschino cherry cake!

And it really was, too!

And that’s how the eldest Edler managed to survive yet another birthday.
