Here is the mud cake! We even sang "Rotten birthday to you, Grouchy Elle" just like Big Bird!
Luckily we had a real cake too! :)
She did get some real gifts too.
Then...drum roll please...we told the kids that the next gift was actually for both of their birthdays and they should open it together. It was... A Wii!!!! I loved their faces!!
I had taken it all out and set it up earlier in the week so that night we could get it running without difficulty. We went to eat lunch at school with Elle on her birthday and Reese said, "Hey Elle, we have a Wii at home!" Luckily Elle just said, "No we don't Reese." Whew! Luckily no one believes a 3 year old! I don't even know how she knew what it was. I didn't even play anything. I made sure everything was hooked up and running and then put it back in the box. Why do kids these days have to be so technological! I should have made her set it up and save myself some time!
