We started Natalie's birthday off with some M&M pancakes. I'm sure Buddy the Elf would have loved to join us. "We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup."
When Natalie can choose a treat she usually picks M&Ms, so I made a trail of them leading to her room where her presents were waiting.
Goldmine! She has loved her kitchen. Last night as we were putting her to bed she kept reminding me to not take anything. To make sure everything would be there in the morning. To not move anything.
Her birthday was on a Sunday morning, and all the new stuff made for a fairly peaceful/children-occupied few hours before church for me and Nate.
It was cooler this weekend in Vegas, so I actually agreed to eat outside and we enjoyed chocolate cake and ice cream.
