I “moustache” you to look at this cake.

It is my son Owen’s birthday today. He turns nine. It is going too fast, this whole childhood thing. But we had a great day. He wanted a moustache theme–so we obliged. He and all his friends were wearing fake moustaches. It was a riot.

Here’s his cake:

  1. Luckily, he’s got that safe in there (smart boy), ’cause I could go for a little of that cash after hitchin’ a lift up the hill, boarding (okay, maybe just sledding) back down the hill, zippin’ this way and that, and then enjoying a sit down in the hot tub. Oh, and rope—rope always comes in handy. Just ask Kate from the Mysterious Benedict Society.
