My son and I share a birthday, along with Bridget's son. It is definitely a busy day!
I picked up some Sonic meals and ate lunch with him in the cafeteria. Then me and my two girls (ages 3 and 1) rushed to Wal-mart to pick up some M&M's to make some cookies to take to his class at the end of the day. (The schools here are very picky about birthday treats. You are not allowed to bring anything with frosting. However, they allowed homemade M&M cookies.) They were a big hit! I should have made more because the kids kept asking for seconds. :)
I asked my son what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday celebration with the family. He didn't want a cake, but homemade Oreo cookies with Oreo ice cream. So that's what he got! And they were so good! My sister-in-law gave me this recipe years ago and they are yummy and easy!
