More Birthday Celebrations… Jex’s Day

Putting the kids days together have seemed simple this year.  It is blogging about them that has taken some time for me to get to.

Jex’s birthday was one week ago, and I think that it is high time that I shared his celebrations. 

We shared a nice mommy and son night the night before.  We shared a plate of fries and dessert at chili’s and then headed off to do some toy shopping.

He too got breakfast in bed.  He picked Skinny pancakes.  They are my kids favorite.  They are actually just crepes rolled up with syrup and powdered sugar.  Heck! Let’s just share the recipe.

Skinnies(what my kids call them)

1. Cup flour

1/2 C. milk

1/2 C. water

1 egg

1 t. salt

1/4 C. melted butter

Add all the ingredients together and whisk.  Dump 1/4 C. on a hot skillet and roll the skillet around to spread the batter thin.   Cook on each side for 1-2 minutes.  Add syrup and powdered sugar and roll them up.  Your kids will go crazy.  It is one of my favs too.

Okay …. I got sidetracked.  This is Jex’s day.  After the breakfast he spent time doing things he loves; watching tv and playing the computer.  I try to limit both activities, but I did not on his day.  Then we went to….


Coldstone once again.  I think this is our new tradition.  The kidslove trying what every one else got.

After that it was more of his favorites.  He watched a movie, and Stella and I made cookies.  Jex requested Ginger Snaps.

Stella helped me set his special table scape.  It looked like this….table

The kids love when I light the candles.

Jex picked Homemade french fries, and bratwursts for dinner.  I know I know… brats.  It’s a boy food.  After dinner we sang and while we sang he…

The night ended for me with a huge smile as I watched him…

Reading his own Birthday cards.

One last surprise was when he immediately left and went fishing with his dad.  He had a great night.
