Jocelyn gave Morgan a Hershey Syrup Cook Book, Necklaces and Silly String.
Jocelyn, Talynn and Morgan. Cute girls! :)
Lindey has taken to this old worn out camera we have. Every time I get out my camera, she runs to grab hers. She decided she wanted to take pictures of Morgan opening presents too!
After presents, I let the kids decorate cupcakes with different colors/flavors of frosting, sprinkles, and a few types of candy. I didn't take any pictures of them, but they turned out great! The kids were all excited to eat them. After the little kids went to bed, the girls decided to play a few games. Morgan had seen the idea to play this game in a book she has. It is called Flour Tower. The basic idea is to make a tower out of flour and put a piece of candy on top (M&Ms). You have to take a small spoon and take turns scooping away the sides. Whoever makes the tower collapse has to pick up the candy with their mouth--no hands can be used. They got quite silly with it. :) I was having a great time watching them!
I love this picture of Talynn. :) Lol
John has started the tradition of making the kids names in pancakes for breakfast on their birthdays. Since Morgan's birthday was on Sunday this year, and he wouldn't be home (church meetings) we decided to do it with her friends Saturday instead. John spelled her name, and wrote BFF (best friends forever), squiggles, hearts, peace signs, unicorns--everything 10 year old girls love. It was perfect. We always pull out the fruit and whipped cream for this breakfast to make it extra special. It was a hit! A fun little tradition John has started. He says it is only for this year, but I don't know if the kids will let him end it there. :) (He started with Eli's birthday last summer) Eli and Micah are already planning what they want their pancakes to look like for their birthdays in July! lol
Happy birthday, Sister Sue! Glad you had such a fun time with your two BFFs! (Mom is glad you have some pretty great friends to hang around with.) Love you!
