A Birthday and a TWD Two-fer!

Today that little peanut turns five!  When I called his parents to ask what he wanted for his birthday, they said he was quite enamored with the Wii Fit at their local Science Center so that's what I took him.  Are kids today coming out of the womb pre-programmed to know how to operate every electronic device you put in front of them.  This kid knew how to do more things on my iPhone at the age of 2 than I did at 45.  Needless to say he had almost every game on the Wii Fit mastered in well under 36 hours!  He was especially good at hula hooping!!!  

At least until his little sister tried to help!!

Happy Birthday, Reece!  I hope you have a great day, but if I had my way I'd keep you at five forever!!!

Since I've been travelling the past couple of weekends, I've gotten behind in my TWD postings!  I made these Chocolate Oatmeal Drops a few weeks ago and they were a big hit with Mr. B.  They were chocolately and cakey and the oatmeal fooled him into thinking they were "healthy"!

He actually watched me make these Toasted Almond (and Cinnamon Chip) Scones this morning, so he knew these were anything BUT healthy (cream, whole milk, egg.....) but boy were they good.  He likes anything with almond extract but the addition of some mini-cinnamon chips really put these over the top.
