yesterday my little J dude turned 15 years old.... 15!!! which means he gets his learners permit, and is one year away from 'legally dating.' our morning started bright and early with present opening.
after dinner we had chocolate pancakes for dessert (an old family fave) they're eaten with a sweet butter - not syrup - and they may sound nasty but they're actually quite scrumptious. jackson opted out of cake, because his birthday is the 4th of 5 birthdays within one month. as a result we're all a little burnt out on cake.
see his last birthday here.
