Since Jake & Mallory's birthday was in the middle of the week & a few days before their party, I wanted to do a few things on the actual day to make it special for them. We started our day with their favorite breakfast - sprinkled donuts!
They each got to open one present Wednesday morning. Mal opened a Mother Gothel doll from the movie Tangled. Jake opened an Ironman toy that shoots missiles & makes cool sounds. We chose well for their one present for that day. They were both thrilled!
Daddy then had to head off to work, but the kids & I went to Studio Movie Grill to see the new Ice Age. Who wouldn't love getting to eat popcorn for lunch?! I actually packed some PB&Js to take with us as well, but they mostly ate popcorn. I figured it's a day to celebrate, so who cares about nutrition? I was a bit worried about taking Beau to a movie, but he did great & probably ate more popcorn than anyone else. We finished the day with sugar cookies at small group shaped as letters "J" and "M" and the number "4." What a great day with my kids!
