Birthday Preparation

'Twas the night before the birthday and all through the kitchen


there was chocolate


and icing


and hot wheels a sittin'.


Tricycle wheels pieces were snapped into place.


Sugar and candles added just the right way.


Pieces were lost and cake designs were drawn.


Everything put into place in the wee hours before dawn.

(Because it's impossible for the Porras Family to do birthday
 planning with time and organization.  Wait, where was I?)


Why all the hustle and bustle and care?

For a little boy sleeping, about to turn two, just upstairs.
