Happy 17th to the kid who made me a mom

Oldest son (Greyson) is celebrating his 17th birthday today. He's an honorary Irishman, though I'm not sure where that'll actually get him in life. We're out for Chinese tonight (his favorite) and then home to watch old videos of the birthday boy (we do this for each kid on their special day and they never stop laughing their butts off at how they sounded back then) on the day he became our first child and the first grandchild for both sides of the family. Then...we'll feast on the homemade yeast-rising cinnamon rolls (with icing) that Greyson requested instead of a birthday cake. I made five pans yesterday exactly half were totally gone by noon today. I'm posting these for your enjoyment. Regular blogging returns in a day or so. In the meantime,
Happy St. Patrick's Day to you1

Oh my! Those look DELICIOUS!

For some reason, I'm hungry now. I wonder why?

I know what we are having for breakfast/brunch this weekend. :-)

I love the tradition of playing the old videos. Fortunately for my kid, we didn't have the camcorder aimed at my crotch for her birth because I would definitely haul that out of the archives.

Did that make you all hurl, Half Sky Readers? I apologize, but that's the sort of stuff we do in New Ageville Santa Cruz. I won't get started on what we do with placentas.

Ahem, anyway, happy birthday to your kiddo and to your 17 years of badass mommyhood.

OK .. I had a foodgasm just LOOKING at those. I may make your sticky buns my wallpaper. (For that is what we call them - "sticky buns". It is descriptive, of course, but it is also marvellously adaptable to double entendre, which makes it amusing for those of us who admit to being arrested adolescents.)

I sooo want to eat your sticky buns!

did you just try some different color on your blog by any chance? When I first clicked on your blog, I saw alot of blue, but then it disappeared.

I dug out my Fanny Farmer just the other day to find a cinnamon roll recipe; I've been in the mood. Would you post (or email) yours? They look scrumptiuos!

Happy birthday, Greyson!

Oh man those look wicked good. My grandmother has an amazing recipe for them but I'm afraid to get it... cause I know I'd make them and eventually need to widen the door to be able to get out of the house.

I just want you to know that i would eat those buns until violently ill. And then I'd probably eat another one. Hope it was a great birthday for Greyson.

And good god, do those cinnamon rolls look good. You do know cinnamon rolls are my weakness, right? When are you coming over?

For Gawd's sake, Wordgirl, you're putting those mouthwatering pics out without the recipe?!

If you're gonna tempt us like this and not ask us over to help eat 'em, then at least give us the recipe.

Oh yeah, happy bd. But I want those rolls.

Mmmmmm... cinnamon rolls! Oh, and my son's name is Grayson, but he's only 10. I'm not aware of many others, so it's cool to see your son's name and spelling. Hope he had a great birthday!
