Isaac and Stephen’s 11th Birthday


Isaac and Stephen were the first of the children to celebrate their birthday in Vienna. I wasn’t quite sure how to hold a birthday party for many children in our small apartment so they just invited a few friends.  We haven’t yet discovered a cake in Vienna that we really love, so they decided to combine two fun desserts–chocolate chip cookies and fruit pizza and decorate their own cookies. I was happy with the idea–I figured it would keep everyone busy for a while.  The only candles left at the store when I went were very long ones. I didn’t think they would stay in the cookies very well, so I made the fruit plates and stuck the candles in the bananas. The bananas were a good choice. It is taking longer and longer to light their birthday candles these days and the bananas were rather waxy by the time they were lit.  They all had fun decorating their cookies and loading them with more icing and fruit than you can imagine a cookie will hold.
