Birthday Girl

The birthday girl had a great day (and weekend)!

We started off her day with cinnamon rolls for breakfast and let her open a present. She got just what she wanted. How exactly does one get the wrapping paper off, but not the ribbon. She's got some skillz! Now if she could just get the top off!

Here she is modeling her new, big feet.

That night after dance we had dinner and cake.Her choice for dinner: crepes

I spent an hour at the stove making these bad boys, 23 of them to be exact!

Here's the recipe, if your interested, they are DELISH!

1 3/4 c. flour

1/2 t. baking powder

1 T sugar

1/2 t. salt

2 c. milk

3 eggs

2 T butter, melted

1/2 t. vanilla

Mix dry ingred., stir in remaining, beating with hand mixer till smooth. Pour scant 1/4 c. of batter into heated, non-stick skillet (6-8") immediately rotating until thin film covers entire bottom. Cook till lightly brown then turn and cook other side. (i spray Pam occasionally on the pan).

Butter, cover in sugar or jam or syrup and roll. The syrup will just fall out, so...maybe cut like a pancake!

Kristens favorite is granulated sugar and butter.

I cringe when my kids ask for crepes. I'm at the stove forever. By the time I give the last child their crepe, the first child needs another one. They are a family fav, though. I'm glad Kristen had a great birthday! She looks really cute in those pics! :)
