For breakfast, we had a special birthday treat. A few months ago, Lily had tried some cream horns at co-op and loved them. She has asked me multiple times if we could buy them, and I've always answered with a resounding no. Abby had the idea of letting her have them for her birthday, and I thought it was a fun idea. She was both surprised and delighted when we set a big plate of cream horns in front of her!
A new DS game (notice that it weighs nearly nothing and has almost no volume, perfect for a carry on piece of luggage!) And yes, that is a baby shower bag, but don't tell Lily, she thought the duckies were adorable. Let's just say we're definitely living in a "use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without" lifestyle these days.
The Friday after Lily's birthday, she had two friends come over and play for a couple of hours. Then, we shared pizza and a birthday cookie. They had as much fun as they would have had with an organized party and it provided no stress for me. It was a win/win!
Lily could not believe that we could actually make a big cookie, like they make at the mall. She was thrilled. I was appalled that it had been long enough since I've made one that she couldn't even remember it. Needless to say, it was a hit!
