We started out the morning with a duo of "Happy Birthday" by Logan and Mommy followed by the opening of the above present. An ironic book about how dinosaurs share their toys with their friends. Ironic, I say, because the boys spent most of the day fighting over who got to have the book.
Next, Thad (and Mommy and Logan) enjoyed delicious Chocolate Chip Pancakes with whip cream smiley faces. Scrumptious, indulgent, but also nutritious with flax seed and rolled oats. To check out the recipe, go here.
mmmm.... serious sugar intake at 9 a.m. (can this only lead to trouble?)
Later that evening we were joined by various family members to celebrate Thad's big day of the year. Mommy made Baked Spaghetti to feed an army (which we will now be eating for the next couple of weeks!) and Snickers Ice Cream Cake. Thank goodness cousin Emma is ready and willing to run interference on would-be candle blower-out-ers.
The toddler toy groupies at the present opening bonanza.
And finally, the icing on the night. Motorcycles galore. A miniature motorcycle that Thad insisted on sleeping with and the Harley Big Wheel that he can ride 'round and 'round the house all day long. Let us pray this is not insight into a future love of grown-up motorcycles!
Happy Birthday to you, Thad! You bring joy to our lives and a smile to our hearts.
