Jane's 4th Birthday
Jane turned four this week during our Spring Break! She requested Cheerios for breakfast (any store-bought cereal box is a special treat in our house), and Scott made the kids favorite homemade Honey Smacks as well. Jane opened her gifts before we ate breakfast. Mommy and Daddy got her a Frozen outfit and coloring/sticker book and Granny Garnica got her a Frozen magnetic set. Lot's of Frozen going on around here! :) A couple of other presents from extended family came later in the week. Thanks Aunt Pepa for the Tinkerbell movie and nail stickers, and Grandparents for money and a Frozen watercolor book and set!
After breakfast and chores, we went to the WOW children's museum for a couple of hours, Chick-Fil-A for lunch and then came home and watched Frozen while mom made the cookie cake and Nora slept. Jane doesn't love cake but she does love M and M's so that's why we went with a giant M and M cookie. I put Annabelle's Frozen dolls on top and I tried to free-hand a couple of 'Frozen' type things/writings to make it a little more special. I was so grateful that I had saved the leftover frosting from Annabelle's Disney Frozen birthday cake last month and didn't have to make anymore! All in all, with baking the cookie, decorating and cleanup it ended up taking less than 2 hours which coincided perfectly with Nora's nap. Jane loved it which is all I cared about! Hooray!
