To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time. ~Clara Ortega

Happy Birthday Lexi!!!!!

Lex kind of felt bad that only Parker remembered her birthday yesterday out of all her siblings but we know you are all pretty busy. We grabbed her before she could even change from playing tennis and started the celebration.

He went all out.
First.... A piece of strawberry pie he made from scratch with just a little sugar so she could have a dessert (it was to die for yummy) It had a clue on the bottom of the plate.
2nd - a treasure hunt. He spent a morning last week making up about 15 clues that took her through the house and in the yard. Here is a sampling of one of his creative clues. Ultimate! U is for my ultimate sister, because she's so good at everything. Go and see where you got your skills, at the room of loud snores.

3rd- The clues were all found and on each clue was a different letter. Unscramble the letters to find out what her gift would be. She went crazy when she realized the word was .....Super Smash Brothers!

4th Now wheres the gift? More unscrambling of a sentence on the back of the clues. It was in the HUGE willow tree. It took her awhile to find.
How's that for a kind brother. A homemade pie, treasure hunt and the ultimate gift- super smash brothers.

****j/k of course about her birthday being yesterday but he was so excited to give her his gift that we did it early. Yes 2 months early.
