time, it flies

Gotta be quick today: it’s a birthday in these parts. Y’all, my baby is 14. That’s bananas.

In lieu of a new post, here’s something delicious: my father’s family recipe for biscuits with chocolate gravy. When I was growing up, this was the star of the meal whenever we had breakfast for dinner (eggs, bacon, fruit, and biscuits with chocolate gravy—heaven on a plate). After Scott and I had kids, it gradually became our special birthday breakfast. Maybe that’s why we wound up with such a big family—more birthdays!

Okay, I thought this was going to be a quickie. Turns out that old post 2007 had an image hosted on my original Typepad blog. I didn’t know that was even still around! I had to update a bunch of old links and images and now it’s about time to go make dinner—Huck has requested paninis. We’re all about the food today!

    Happy birthday Huck! Isn’t it wild having all teens and above? I mean, I really love it, but…*sniff*

    My goodness, no WAY.

    That means my nephew is also fourteen this year.
    Sheesh – they’re so old. (Not us. NEVER US.)

    I remember when Tom and I used to buy him Matchbox cars. 🙂 Or little tool sets. Remember the periscope? It goes too fast.
