This is birthday week in our house! My baby boy turns 4! Wow. And my love, J, and twin turn 28. Happy Birthday, J, Twin and O! I planned a party at a local bowling alley for J and twin on Saturday with some friends and family.
However, I also wanted something special for J, O and twin tonight on their actual birthdays. We're going to go to a local restaurant in town that specializes in birthdays for dinner and then when we get home we have a homemade fortune cookie tower/cake that J and I made last night! It looks so beautiful and I broke one so I got to eat it and it was delicious.
And, since gifts will be opened Saturday at the party, I asked family and friends to get me a "fortune" for the guys and I would put them in handmade paper fortunes to open as gifts on Friday night. J and twin each have 17. (I wanted 28 but the idea of coming up with 11 for each guy on my own seemed a wee bit daunting.)
I hope they enjoy themselves tonight. I think this weekend will be fun filled celebrations! Check back next week for tutorials on the handmade paper fortune cookies and the chocolate dipped fortune cookies and pretzels.
