Fulfilled Fridays 12 Link-up

Birthday Candy

The Inventor’s birthday is this weekend! The planning is complete, and I’ve got nearly all the supplies.

All she asked for was a small meal with the family and Ice Cream Sundays.

That I can easily accommodate.

The fun part was looking for candy for her ice cream.

She is on a very restricted diet so it is always an adventure. I can’t buy anything chocolate because it almost always has milk in it. That limits a lot of things you’d have on your typical Ice Cream Sunday.

So instead I hit the bulk bins at our local grocery store and searched for interesting and fun candy.

I found the perfect stuff!

She loves Legos and building all kinds of things with them. They make Lego candy. You can even build with it. When I showed her the bag she started giggling like a girl.

It is close to Halloween so that means all the gross candy is in the store. While looking at the bins with my sister, she found something labeled “Missing Body Parts”. Oh my, gummy fingers, feet, brains, and bones.

As a bonus Miss Crafty was grossed out by the candy. The Inventor will get the whole bag to herself and not have to share.

This weekend is going to be a nice relaxing weekend with family time, a special meal picked by The Inventor and homemade Ice Cream Sundays. I’m excited to celebrate life with her.

What kind of fun things do you do on birthdays?

    Yesterday, our 1st grader had her birthday.since my husband worked, we chose to go to the Zoo with Grandma (we have annual passes)..she asked for homemade mac & cheese for dinner..with vanilla cake and ice cream..she helped make the cake..after we got back from the Zoo. We were treated by Grandma to both breakfast and lunch! (Zoo passes are for family +1) 😀
    She received a Kindle for her birthday as she loved reading on her brother’s as well as mine. We tend not to have a “party”..but just keep it family and the birthday child picks meal, cake, etc, and we try to make it more special. Oh..I forgot..my husband brought home a balloon , as well as flowers for the birthday girl!

      Isn’t that the way it goes sometimes Katrina? Once one gets a shiny new toy it seems like suddenly another wants it too. Hope you survived your birthday week and your kids enjoyed them thoroughly.

    Oh how times change as they grow, I remember zoos and candy.
    Happens be Monday is my Sunshine’s birthday (don’t listen ladies cause it’s coming but somehow 18 )
    What does she want besides a 4 ” lift for her truck, Miss Leather and Lace needs her roots touched and an eyebrow wax.
    Perhaps (cover ears again ) the boyfriend ,who just happened to turn 18 today, can handle truck parts, mama hair and eyebrows.
    A very Happy Birthday Miss Inventor.
    PS Miss Crafty Halloween candy sorta grosses me out too.
