My son is 24 today!

My oldest son is 24 years old today. Hard to believe that 7 lb. 11 oz. kid is about 6 feet tall, LOL! He's a great kid. So smart it's scary. And the first one to offer help before you ask him. Mom-and-son activities these days are either watching Alton Brown, of "Good Eats," or playing Scrabble. I'm happy to say the win-win ratio on the game is about even. His taste in music is closer to his father's--heavy metal, dark and brooding stuff. (Me, I'm into just about anything that sounds good, but Ella and Nat top my list.) I have two books on order for him, both of which are funny. Michael has a great sense of humor, a little on the edgy side but not mean-spirited. We are going to his favorite restaurant for dinner--Catfish Annie's. And everyone is off from either school or work so all 7 of us get to go! Oh...and I made him a popcorn cake. That's basically a popcorn ball recipe pressed into a buttered cake pan, then turned out onto a tray. I haven't had one in years. My mother used to make them. Boy, did the smell bring back memories of my own childhood! I hope Michael likes his cake!

Thanks! We had a great day. It was wonderful to all go out together.
The day ended in a lovely way, though...with a flood in our downstairs. What fun...

Glad the birthday was nice, up until the end part. . .

How do you cut the popcorn cake? Does it slice or crumble?
