Today is Chickadee’s 10th birthday! For the first time in over 19 years, we have no children in single digits, age-wise, which is weird, but Chickadee is very excited to hit double digits!
Chickadee decided on a two-day birthday celebration like Turkey had, so we started yesterday morning with homemade cinnamon rolls:
And then we went to Laumeier Sculpture Park to enjoy the beautiful weather:
We were up bright (or not) and early to open presents before her siblings went to school:
Since the weather today was pretty gross, we spent the day watching movies, including Frozen and Encanto. And I made potato-parsnip soup for dinner…I was kind of surprised that she requested this particular meal, but I appreciate that she always keeps me guessing!
I visited her Animal Crossing: New Horizons island…she has a whole birthday room in her house!
For dessert, she picked another new recipe from the My Little Pony Baking Book…piñata cupcakes, which I filled with m&ms and sprinkles. It was a really fun recipe (except for when the butter I was melting exploded and made a huge mess, which I didn’t even know was possible!), and they looked really cool!
It’s kind of unbelievable to me that Chickadee is so big…I’m feeling a little old this week!
