This is what 13 looks like first thing in the morning.
Too old for birthday spankings -- but we did end up in a wrestle time with Dad.
The requested Cranberry Cheesecake.
Little more smoke from the candles this year!
Braydon already received his gift from us when we took him to the 3D Imax movie and simulator ride in DC, but he received some wonderful cards.
And... a check from Grandma!
It was a great birthday.
The drama playing out in the background, was all about blueberry pie. My brother gave me a DVD set and cookbook from America's Test Kitchen. One of the recipes was the Best Blueberry Pie. Jerome has been craving this pie. Wouldn't you know Walmart had blueberries on sale? Then I hemmed and hawed about buying the Vodka required for the crust. Wouldn't you know Walmart sells that too? This non-drinker actually bought a 5th for the sake of the pie. It took me until midnight to get it done.....
And this is just a good picture.
