a birthday breakfast for rainer

Rainer turns four today! My sweet baby is four. Four! Can hardly believe how grown up he has become. I think I have to stop referring to him as "the baby!" I put together a little birthday breakfast for him with his crown, his birthday ring, and a morning present. So fun! I love the fall colors of his birthday.

I made the German Pancake with Apples from Teens Cook. I had always wanted to try this, and it was just so perfect for a birthday breakfast--sweet, fruity, but not too sweet (I halved the sugar) and not too much. I loved how pretty and puffy it turned out.
We sang him happy birthday and he blew out the candles. He did great. He's been sick all week (Ken stayed home with him since Tuesday) but he is much much better today. Hooray!
More fun is to come tonight at his family party. Happy birthday little one!

The picture might be better, but I am sure you will recognize it... :-)))
Our birthday ring is more than 40 years old (from my childhood) and I love it so much!
