Look Who's Turning 60!

 It's not every day that your little brother turns the big 6-0! 

So I thought I'd share the special card I made for him today and a few of our family photos from lunch today.

I've laughingly told my friends that Mike and I are the only two adults that were 'weirdly raised' to called this sandwich a different name.  

The question is - 'What do YOU call the sandwich you make when you mash up boiled eggs?'

'Egg Salad Sandwich' right? 

Well we were raised to call it a Deviled Egg sandwich - right or wrong - that's what we have always called it.  I know - the only two in the whole world!  You just have to know that for the card to make sense.... 

Well deviled, scrambled, fried or whatever, I've seriously got the best brother ever and I love him dearly!

My husband and I made a cake to take to our surprise lunch for him also.... I know ... Me Make A Cake?

Well how about a Toilet Paper Cake!

And then we settled down for a nice family lunch of BBQ, rice & hash, green beans, slaw & hush puppies, followed by lime cream pie for dessert.

With full tummies, we waddled to the den to rest and enjoy a few old stores about Mike's childhood.  

There's nothing quite like homemade memories, especially for special birthdays!  
Here's to many more little brother~ Love you!
