In a family as large as mine, we have a lot of celebrating to do. Almost every single month is covered with a birthday by my immediate family except for May and October...so far!!
When you celebrate birthdays every week (it seems) we get a little less picky about how extravagant our party is. This year, I was in charge of picking up the cake for my brother-in-law.
As I exited Costco, the older gentleman at the door enthusiastically looked at Leo and asked who the birthday cake is for? I answered, "My 41-year-old brother-in-law!"
The gentleman gave me a funny look and did his little smiley-face doodle on the back of my receipt. Some people have no sense of humor whatsoever!
Turns out, it was the cake of his dreams!
Leo got a little trigger-happy and started blowing out candles. MUST...EAT...CAKE!!!
Speaking of big families - how lucky are my kids to have creative older cousins?!?!?!
