Today, my "baby" turned 6!
(I guess I have to face the fact that
my baby isn't a baby anymore!)
For a few years now, on their "real" birthdays (their parties are often several days later), my kids have enjoyed a special Birthday Pancake to start their day. Made in the shape of the number of their new age decorated with a bit of whipped cream and sprinkles, it's a simple little tradition that they just love.
This year, I decided to add a new little activity to our birthday traditions ~ a Birthday Balloon Pop! I came across the idea a few months ago at Increasingly Domestic and knew my kids would love it. Well, boy, was it a hit today!!
It looks like a fairly ordinary bunch of balloons,
but they're hiding a special surprise!
In each of the six balloons, is a dollar bill!
Armed with a pin, my daughter had a BLAST
popping her balloons and watching the dollar bills
float down to the ground.
Without a doubt, we'll be doing this for every birthday from now on! (Her big sister is looking forward to her chance in a few weeks when she turns 9!)
Check out this smile
as she gathered up her birthday loot!
Thanks so much, Amy at Increasingly Domestic, for this awesome idea!
