Big, Big Little, Little

Max’s very first nickname was “Little, Little Sweets;” (Nat was “Little Sweets.”). Then it was shortened to Little, Little. And then, well, of course, he was never really little at all, and so he became…Big, Big Little, Little.

Now he’s the Biggest Little Little there ever was. He will be turning 17 on Monday.

Last night was the party, with a “Watchmen” theme.

Tabblo: They Watched the Watchmen

Max and his friends celebrated his upcoming 17th birthday (March 9) last night by ditching the Junior Prom and instead dressing up and going out to a sushi dinner — all eleven of them — and then going to see “The Watchmen” on opening night. Everyone came back here for the birthday cake (baked by Nat, Ned, and me, as usual) and champagne glasses full of orange soda. … See my Tabblo>


Happy Birthday Max! 17 is the best age in life.

Happy 17th birthday, Max! You're in the home-stretch to adulthood!
Susan — I love your Watchmen cake! Aren't you glad that the basic shape for it was a circle? I'm sure that made the baking/decorating a little easier this time!
xxxs, ooos & a virtual pinch to grow on!

Happy birthday Max! Cake looks great. I love those that feel secure enough to ditch the prom. I had to see what it was all about, and I think I would have much preferred sushi, movie and some cake. Lisa
