Today is our big brothers birthday!
Tommy is a great brother, an amazing dad (and from a reliable source) a fantastic husband.
Tommy has had the SAME cake as his favorite since he was a kid, accompanied with the same ice-cream. Yellow cake with chocolate icing and a single scoop of vanilla.
One year, when I was 8 and Tommy as turning 11, I stuck my finger in his cake and trenched a path across the top. Then I tried to fix it ... by licking it. Everything snowballed from there until the family discovered sometime later that I had relived his birthday cake of its chocolatie burden. My mother was less than pleased but Tommy took it pretty well and we baked him a new one.
Happy birthday to the BEST big brother!
