Ah. Family trads. Many and strange. But to be treasured without fail.

Karate chops with the knife? Or hand? What fun!

Stephen Hayes said...

Like Brian, I want to see that after shot. I bet it wasn't pretty.

So do I!!

At first, I thought he was going to use his hand. Then, I saw the knife. Then, I saw that the blade was facing the right way. If not, then, well, that'd be a birthday worth remembering.
Would make a mess of the frosting, too.
Ice cream looked safe, though.

Brian: He only used the Karate chop with the knife on the first cut!

Yamini: His grandpa started this tradition when they were little; this was Austin's first attempt to do it himself.

Pat: The knife...and yes, fun!

Stephen: as I told Brian...He only Karateed the first cut...no he didn't massacre the cake! lol

Fishducky: See above.

Al: He did a great job!
