The J-Bird. 27 years old now. His birthday landed on Mother's Day this year so...hmm. What do you do? We went out to eat the night before and made sure to have plenty of leftovers so neither of us had to cook :)
We had friends over for cake and ice cream that night. (A german chocolate cake with a coconut and pecan filling on top of a chocolate torte layer covered in a dark chocolate ganache. Mmmhmmm. Recipe here.) And yes, I only had 16 candles. One candle for every 1 year, 251 days. Standard birthday candle ratio if memory serves.
