Tackle It Tuesday: my April Fool's day baby :)

April Fool's day is a special day in my house.... not because we like jokes, but rather because it happens to be DD's birthday. :) She was quite an April Fool's gift-- born prematurely at 33 weeks, and quite a surprise to both us and the doctors! We were quite blessed, though, and she was pretty healthy and had no major problems. Now I can hardly believe that she's turning five today!

DD's birthday celebration will be low-key this year, just her grandparents & maybe one aunt coming over for supper. We'll be feasting on her chosen menu of chicken nuggets (homemade chicken fingers for the adults), our favorite macaroni & cheese with tomatoes, and a veggie tray with dip. Oh, and, of course a chocolate cake and ice cream. The cake has a giant Scooby Doo face on it and came from our favorite bakery.

My birthday-related to-do list:

  • pick up cake from bakery

  • sneak out to garage to put a big bow on her bike :)

  • wrap her other little gifts while she's otherwise occupied

  • cut up and marinate chicken for the adults

  • straighten up family room

  • empty dishwasher

  • clean guest bathroom

  • run to grocery store for ice cream cones (for DD's preschool class tomorrow)

  • bake cupcakes in ice cream cones (I've never tried that, but this recipe makes it sound easy enough!) & then attempt this rainbow frosting

Well, considering that list, I need to get moving!
