and enter the birthday boy

it just so happens that on this day in the years 1986 and 1988, my very best friend and my very best younger brother, respectively, were brought into this world.  last week, i couldn't wait to post images of lk's little birthday bundle, and now i've got just a few sneaks of the card/envelope i'm sending home to massachusetts.

 

alexander, happy happy twenty-third - now you're almost as old as me!  oh wait, i suppose that's how it is every year.
