When exactly half birthdays got to be such a novelty is unknown, but I guess it's what we do. Luke's barely made it in time for bed--by 8:45pm the kids were begging for the cake they'd seen sitting on the counter for the past three hours. It may or may not have been licked, poked and picked at for those three hours.
Oh well. Who cares? Licked or not-who can't love a piece of chocolate cake!
