  • My birthday is one week from today. My little brother's birthday is the next day. Since he is 12 years younger from the time he was born he had the decorated birthday cake, and I've had Marie Calendar banana cream pie or strawberry pie...since I met my husband he has special ordered strawberry banana cream pies for my birthday!
