Yesterday I became the parent of a teenager! Yikes!
He didn't want a cake - just his own, huge blizzard. At DQ my husband mentioned that it was his birthday, so she topped it with a pile of whipped cream. She asked if he was 13. My husband replied, 'Yep, did you see the rebellion in his eyes?'
He got roller blades and had fun testing them out inside the house. It's winter here again.
I made a huge lasagna, with double the ricotta and noodles, per Caleb's birthday request. Also managed to get in one, huge shoo fly block - it's 34" square!
