I also found some paper stars that I had made for my mom a while ago so I hung those in the kitchen.
No birthday would be complete without the wooden birthday cake. My great-grandma gave it to me when I turned two and my mom has put it out for every birthday since then. It wouldn't be a birthday without it.
It's a tradition in my family to kick off a birthday with birthday breakfast. I made Cream of Wheat and cinnamon sugar toast. My grandma was doubly impressed because she knows I rarely do any cooking. (I know it's a stretch to call Cream of Wheat and toast cooking, but you get the idea.)
It was so fun to have a birthday breakfast with my family. Happy Birthday Grandma. I love you lots!
