Happy Birthday Jordon

Eleven candles. Two on one side and nine on the other, it's supposed to represent 29 years. Wow, is our youngest really that old now? Seems like just yesterday I was celebrating my own 29th birthday!

Along with the candles and the sparkler I like to decorate birthday cakes with a thick layer of loose chocolate shavings ---- which of course fly all over the place and make a big mess when the candles are blown out.

Luckily there is no shortage of people willing to scoop up their fair share of the "mess" ---

--- and gobble up the bounty. It's all part of the birthday party fun.

Sometimes a long standing tradition starts out unintentionally.

Your son is a very handsome young man. I know how you feel. I can't believe my son is 33. Of course one can't let chocolate go to waste. LOL
