My Mom and Dad referred to my older brothers as 'the boys' and my younger brother and me, who are two years apart, as 'the little ones'. Mom often baked Chocolate Chip Cookies which we all loved, and she baked these Brownie Fudge Cookies for my little brother, his favorite. I recently surprised him by baking these fudgy goodies. It had been years since he had these cookies and he nearly forgot these were his favorite.

Growing up we spent lots of time together and most early pictures were of the two of us. We were out of bed before the rest of the family on Saturday mornings watching cartoons as we waited for the house to come to life. The two of us would quietly scurry downstairs on Christmas morning to find toys, bicycles and gifts beneath the tree. Oh, heaven! As little kids we even shared a room for several years. After Mom & Dad tucked us into bed we would talk about whatever little kids talk about. Then when we tired we would end our conversation with this: “Say your last goodnight… goodnight.”

Those happy childhood days are long gone but the memories remain. Even though we annoyed each other at times, without knowing we forged a sibling bond and eternal friendship that has stood the test of time.
