Normally Scout brings an assortment of pint sized breakfast treats on his first day back, but since we had a guest of honor celebrating a milestone birthday, the little elf treated us to our favorite Krispy Kreme donuts!!
All of the birthday boy’s favorites were on hand – glazed, chocolate with sprinkles and creme filled.
Inside the cupcake was a little note with a BIG announcement! We are going to DISNEYLAND!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s a few months away yet, but it was his birthday wish and we want him to be able to help us plan the itinerary. Flights have been purchased and the Disneyland Hotel has been reserved!!!!!!!!!!! He was BEYOND thrilled.
Now, if you’ve been around this blog for a little while, you will know that we normally give the littles “forever gifts” on their birthdays. With them both happening so close to the holidays, we give them something nice that we hope they will have for a long, long time.
This year’s gift was a NICE set of LL Bean rolling luggage. Mother and Daddy-O gave me my set of LL Bean luggage when I was in high school and 25 years later it’s still kicking. That’s got to be pretty close to forever. :-)
I went ahead and decked it out with Disney bag tags for our impending celebratory trip.
And, tucked inside, was his Duffy Bear decked out in a brand spanking new outfit for the Disneyland 60th Diamond Celebration. I mean SO cute, right? John was super excited – even at 10 he loves his Duffy :-) (shhh… don’t tell)
It was a wonderful breakfast and we are ALL so excited for an amazing year to come!!
Happy Birthday John and welcome Scout!!
