My baby is 4!
Bitsy turned 4 today!
and so it was a busy, busy, day.
Per Eitelbach tradition we had homemade (yes from scratch- no bisquik in this house!) waffles with ice cream and we did frozen blueberries instead of strawberries (mymother AWLAYS did strawberries)
and presents- we open presents at breakfast. It is the ABSOLUTE best way to start your birthday- and my mother always comes over.
and then we went to preschool- and participated in the Halloween parade. There is a little shopping center near our pre-school and they give out candy to the kids. So cute!
AND THEN! We made a spaghetti casserole and potatoes to take to Great Grandma's house. Great Grandma, and also Grandma & Papa, want to be a part of birthdays too but this week has been too busy to have them here- so I said we'd go there. Bitsy wanted orange cake, so I made a basic white cake with orange peel and a bit of orange juice and then 1/2 butter cream 1/2 cream cheese chocolate icing. Lucious.
And when we got there- with dinner and cake in hand- we found out that great grandpa was in the hospital. No one told us! They decided it would be better for grandma to have the distraction- it was a bit of a circus.
