I love a themed party! Given that, you can imagine how excited I was to receive a 5th birthday party invitation with a theme…Pancakes & Pajamas! I responded to the mom telling her I would be there – sporting Christmas pajamas, of course! It wasn’t until the night before that I gave consideration to how ridiculous I would look walking up the street sporting gingerbread men sledding on peppermint sticks.
On the way up, I had a brightly wrapped present to balance out the pajamas. I can only imagine what the Swiss were thinking when I walked home at 1:30pm without a present to justify my outfit!
[So many sweet little ones excited about pancakes…and so. much. PINK!]
My boss’ wife is an undercover master baker! She made the most incredible birthday cake! It was made to look like a stack of pancakes, and I am STILL amazed! The best part? The cake hidden under that fondant was delicious!
[This family is awesome! Happy to be part of their extended expat family!]
We sang the “Happy Birthday” song in three languages – English, Spanish, and French, because yes, this five year old is trilingual.
Excited for all of the incredible adventures that await her this year! How fun to turn five in Switzerland!
