The morning started off with Thomas and Jamie playing with balloons while I prepared a special birthday breakfast. We had breakfast sandwiches with bacon, eggs, and cheese, plus blackberries and melon.
|aw, cuties :)|
For dinner, Thomas chose pot roast, mashed potatoes, and green beans. You pretty much can't find a meal our whole family likes better. Yum. I think Jamie had fourths of everything.
And he chose a carrot cake for dessert. I made this recipe (the only change I made was using coconut oil instead of vegetable oil--and it easily fit in 2 9-inch round pans for me. No idea why it would call for 3). It turned out SO yummy. I don't even normally like carrot cake that much, but this recipe is definitely a keeper.
On the Friday following his actual birthday, we went out for dinner and a movie. We ate at an Ethiopian restaurant Thomas has been wanting to try forever and then saw 12 Years a Slave. It's always fun when we get to go out just the two of us.
We had a wonderful time celebrating. Happy birthday Thomas! We love you.
