This year, my older brother turned 60 years old and my younger brother turned 50. We were blessed to get all the siblings together and had an Oktoberfest themed party today. My brothers knew we were having a party, but they didn’t know everything we were preparing. My brother-in-law made wienerschnitzel, my sister made spaetzle, my other sister made braised red cabbage and lebkuchen, and I made a homemade black forest cake. When we lived in Germany, my parents collected a few beer steins, so we got those out. My younger brother bought my older brother a beer stein as a gift and was right in line with the theme of the day without even knowing it. My older brother made a special batch of home brew that he brought to share. Everything just worked out. It was a great day of fun with the family.
