Birthday Waffles

Life is a miracle. Life is precious. Life is important. Life is to be celebrated. And that is exactly what we do! In our home, we LOVE birthdays! And we celebrate birthdays...BIG! In fact we take a whole week to celebrate the occasion!

One of the ways we celebrate is with breakfast in bed. We have done this since the kids were tiny. It makes the kids feel special and they love it!

So today we celebrate my little Princess. A wonderful year of memories, growing, preschool graduation, riding a bike without training wheels, learning to tie shoes, kindness, goodness, gentleness, cuddles, kisses, silliness, vacations, gymnastics, learning to ski on her own, learning to swim, writing words and sounding them out too. We celebrate a little girl learning about Jesus and loving God and how to treat others. We celebrate an amazing young lady.

Here's how we did breakfast in bed for a special little girl!

2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 3/4 cups milk
2 large eggs,
3/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons rainbow sprinkles, plus some for topping
Whipped Cream

Combine the flour, sugar, and baking powder in a mixing bowl. In another bowl, beat the milk, eggs,  melted butter and vanilla. Pour the milk mixture over the dry mixture and mix until just combined. Stir in sprinkles. Heat your waffle iron and let the batter sit for a few minutes and get fluffy!

When the iron is ready, measure and pour batter and cook according to the waffle iron instructions.

Top hot waffle with butter, maple syrup, whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles!

Blow out a candle, Make a wish, and Enjoy!
