Seriously … I LOVE my blog readers!! Some of you said "re-stage" — which is a nice idea, but not likely to happen. The majority of you said photo #1 (and after reading your comments, I agree.) A few of you left me additional links to photos, like this one ….
and several told me to just photoshop sixteen pancakes into stack #1. Nancy, did the photoshop thing for me (she must know that I have not yet read The Idiot's Guide to PSE) Check this out …
From this, to this …

Ryan, turned 16 today also! I had him at 2:22 am so who's older? So
funny that you and I had our firsts on the very same day. I just came
back from his high school where I surprise delivered Little Caesar's
pizza to him and his friends and now I'm going to make a new fave of
his Blue Angel Cake. My baby is growing up! Happy Birthday, Clark!
For the record, Ryan is older than Clark. Clark's birth set a precedent for the other three boys in that my body does not go into labor by itself. I was four days overdue, starting to measure smaller due to a reduction in amniotic fluid and still took 32 hours of very slow labor (on pitocin) I pushed for almost two hours with Clark and he showed up at 9:30 pm. Someday I'll have to tell you the other stories — each is follows the same basic theme, but is as unique as the child it's produced. Happy Belated Birthday Ryan!
Today has been a total SICK Day, with four of my five at home, and now I'm sick too (but not the throw up kind yet, knock on wood) was able to make all three of my scheduled meetings in a bit of a fog and then took an hour nap and am feeling quite a bit better. Even poor Clark got the flu last night before getting his 16 balloons. I told him, "At least you'll always remember your 16th birthday"
And I sat him down just now and snapped this pic of the car he got. Hmmm?
