A 5th Birthday and a Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

This guy is 5! We had birthday ice cream (baking cakes is not my specialty) and stuck a few candles in it.

We started our Christmas morning with a nice breakfast of French toast and blueberry syrup, then finished reading our advent devotional book together. Here’s a picture of the tree before the gift opening begins!
