HAPPY BIRTHDAY!


Today is the big day! Not for me...but for Son16. Today he officially becomes Son17. No party or presents from friends. His social skill deficits really never make that possible. But plenty of attention from the rest of our family. A nice dinner out at the restaurant of his choosing. An ice cream cake. He was very specific about wanting an ice cream cake! LOL And hopefully, he'll enjoy his day.

Happy Birthday, kiddo!!

Happy Bday to him.
If he wants dinner out and an Ice cream cake, more power to him.
At least he know what he wants.

Most of us don't have that clarity in our lives.

Make sure it is chocolate and have a piece for me.

How is it possible that I have never had an ice cream cake? I see them in the store all the time and I think, "boy, that looks good" and then I buy a bag of salad.

This deprivation is starting to get to me. I am buying one tonight. I blame you. And your son.

Happy birthday to your son. We practically share a birthday. I hope he loves his cake and has a great day!!!! I know he'll be wanting to go to a sit down restaurant :-)

Mmm. Ice cream cake! He has discerning taste!

Happy birthday to Son17, and to his parents for 17 years of parenting him...

Happy birthday to your boy, and if you've inspired Mist1 to try ice cream cake, then your post has served double purpose.

What's your son's favorite restaurant?

Happy Birthday for Son17!! And ice cream cake?? YUM...I hope there is enough left to send over this way...

Dorky Dad said...

Happy Birthday son16, no 17! I remember when I was 17. Not very well. But I remember that I was 17 once.

Mmmm ... cake. Maybe we'll make a cake here in honor of your son. I could use any excuse to make cake.

Oh, I'm a day late, but better than never.

I hope his day was wonderful and that he has a fabulous year.

Give him a big squeeze for me, will ya Em? Tell him your redneck buddy sends him her best.

Happy Birthday to Son17!!!!! I hope that the supper out with family, and his icecream cake all meet his expectations & hopes!!! Nothing wrong with not being a party person. I've never liked birthday parties either, and my favorite birthday was my 13th when Dad took the family out to my favorite resteraunt for seafood, and made me a raspberry-topped cheesecake instead of birthday cake. Sometimes (oftentimes) simple really IS best!

Wishing your son many blessings in the coming year, may it be filled with fun learning experiences and love, light, and laughter.

ramblingwoman said...

Happy Birthday to Son17! Hope he enjoyed his birthday and his cake! Great choice!


I once asked for an icecream cake for one of my birthday's from my mum - she made it herself - it was a baked Alaska (is that the same thing?). I think that is the one and only time I've had baked Alaska - maybe I should try baking one for myself!

Attila The Mom said...

That's so funny! Our son is turning 17 as well next week, and the first thing he said he wanted was an ice cream cake!

You think Dairy Queen puts heroin or something in them?
