1 1/4 ounces coconut rum (recommended: Malibu Rum
Pineapple juice, to fill

Brother to Sister

This is the message my dear brother left on Facebook for me on my Birthday and the conversation that followed:

From brother to sister: FOURTY FOUR (44) is not as bad as it sounds. FOURTY FOUR (44) is a time of celebration.¬† it’s not a matter if the glass is half full (eg. FOURTY FOUR (44)) or if the glass is half empty (eg FOURTY FOUR (44)) it’s as simple as there is more room for wine in this glass, even at FOURTY FOUR (44).¬† happy birthday to my FOURTY FOUR (44) year old sister.¬† happpy FOURTY FOURth (44)th birthday angie. ‚ô• from your younger brother (eg 37) andrew

From sister to brother: Thank you ever so much for your well thought out Birthday Wish!¬† Can’t wait to see you on Sunday my dear young punk brother, remember the fun we had on the monkey bars??¬† Oh how about the fun ride we took down the stairs which resulted in two black eyes. ūüôā

From brother to sister: yes who could forget, imagine me falling asleep while climbing on monkey bars resulting in a horrable fall and breaking both of my wrists.  who could forget the Heroics of my sisters rushing me to the safety of my mothers loving arms, and the joy of being with granny every day for 6 weeks at four years old.  thank you for being such a good sister to me.  and the stairs weeeeeeeeeee walkers go so fast as they thumble with the fun down slick uncarpeted stairs.  thanks for the good times sis. love ya ♥

From sister to brother: LMAO till Sunday Brother…….

The love between a brother and sister is something so special. ūüôā

The Yellow Castle and My Birthday Wish

untitled cake

I have a birthday coming up, each birthday is a milestone for me seriously,¬† and I¬† don’t usually have a birthday wish list, but this year I do.

Ok Ok here it is:

I would like to go camping with my  younger brother and  sister.

I’m sure they’ll be thrilled.

Unfortunately Thanksgiving this year¬†falls on my birthday weekend which is when I wanted to drag them out to spend time with me, so¬†I’m hoping¬†if they are agreeable which I’m confident they will I’d like to go the following weekend and if¬†that doesn’t¬†pan out¬†maybe after Christmas, sometime in¬†mid January?!¬†

I am after all hosting the family Thanksgiving meal again for the 6th consecutive year! Gosh all the cooking for all those people, the planning, the preparations,¬†ugggh, I’m tired just thinking about it, and all on my birthday…..maybe I’ll bake a birthday¬†cake¬†for dessert.

I really want to spend time with the two of them, freezing our butts off,  drinking cocoa,  somewhere in beautiful Ontario.

Crazy? Well heck ya!¬† That’s the only way we know how to do things in¬†my family.

I was married when my brother was 10 and¬†I’m sure he was pleased when he became an uncle at the age of 11 and was¬†renamed “Uncle¬†Fru¬†Fru” at 13!¬† Your welcome.¬†

My sister and I are¬†very close in¬†age and are pretty good friends at the moment ūüôā

All  I really would like is for the three of us to spend time together.

I’m sure they’ll make my wish come true since¬†they love me¬†dearly and know that I never ask for anything.¬† I am after all their¬†older sister and have guided them well through their youth ūüôā

Come to think of it …I think I showed them how to build the famous¬†“Yellow Castle” .¬† Good times. ūüôā

I loved that castle!
