|Mr F, waiting for his first day of kindergarten this morning.|
But here is how we have celebrated their birthday so far:
Saturday: They each got to go to Barnes & Noble and pick out a book of their choice, which is where Mr Bunches got his Solar System book that we've been reading all week*
*Special note to PT Dilloway: The book says Pluto's not a planet, but I choose to teach the controversy and recognize it as a planet.
and Mr F got himself an Elmo "I Can Find It Book," because Mr F likes Elmo. Sometimes. He also likes finding things.
From there, they got to go to Toys "R" Us and pick out the toy of their choice. Mr F opted for "nothing," and Mr Bunches opted for "A Stupendously Expensive Hot Wheels' Set That Cost So Much That We Cancelled Phase Three Of Shopping," which was to have been letting them go pick out a DVD for themselves.
Tuesday: Middle Daughter stopped by with "S'mores Pie" and we ordered pizza and made chicken nuggets, the latter being one of Mr F's favorite things, in that he will eat about 1/2 of each nugget before discarding the leftover half. (Everyone knows only the first half of a nugget is okay to eat, right?)
Middle also bought Mr Bunches and Mr F a Spongebob activity book and some clothes, because Middle forgot what it was like to be a kid who got clothes for a birthday.

And we're having a party sub (which is really for us, as they won't eat it) and cake (ditto, although that's mostly for Sweetie) and they each have a secret present that I picked out for them waiting: Mr Bunches is getting a set of Dr. Seuss books and Mr F is getting a couple of windup bath toys.
So to celebrate, here are some of my favorite pictures of Mr F and Mr Bunches I've put on the blog over the past year or so:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MR BUNCHES AND MR F!
