She started the morning by climbing in with us, then going and getting her presents to open in bed. Did not really care about the books or the sequined skirt (which if I could fit into it, I would wear!) but she was THRILLED with her spatulas and sugar sequins from the Nerdy Nummies baking line, and while Adam was napping, she helped me frost her cupcake cake.
Despite sobbing in the morning about it not being his birthday and him not having any presents, Adam was a much better sport about the evening present opening, mostly because he had a confetti fight with himself.
For her birthday menu, Ellie originally asked for pigs in a blanket, which I'm fine with because you can still get nice sausage and crescent rolls and fancy them up for those who aren't super into tubed meat. Then she said she wanted corn dogs, which I am less all about (and not prepared to make myself!) So, we did half pigs and half pre-made frozen corn dogs and everyone was happy. Even used her little onions from the field trip in the salad! And cake, pumpkin pie ice cream and whipped cream.
We ended the evening with a wonderful dance party, as usual. Including an epic dance battle between Ellie and I. And Jake was a wonderful dance partner to all small children, making them levitate!
