We started the day opening presents with Lucy. The other kids were all so very eager to watch her get to it. She’s very meticulous though and hates to rip the paper. So Bella, impatient, stepped in to help out. Everyone crowded in to watch.

Her books didn’t make it on time, so they became Epiphany presents. The Saint Rose wooden doll and embroidered pillow are courtesy of my friend Charlotte of Waltzing Matilda. Lucy loves them already.

We went to Target on Friday and Bella brought her wallet and got Lucy a Lightning McQueen car with her own money. it was a big hit.

I made some wheat-free, dairy-free fluffy chocolate cupcakes that were super easy and except for the coconut flour used no special ingredients. They were really quite good, baked up fluffy and had a rich chocolate flavor. Lucy was thrilled to get to lick the batter. She’s usually so left out.

Everyone enjoyed the cupcakes thoroughly. You really couldn’t tell they were wheat free. (I did make chocolate cream cheese frosting for everyone but Lucy.)

I was a little concerned about the candles, but I needn’t have been. Lucy blew them both out like a pro and was thrilled to do so.

Yummy cupcake!

We went out to dinner, to a local cafe that’s a family favorite. Lucy ate a big plate of fries and nothing else, which is par for the course. She adores potatoes and when they’re on the menu refuses anything else. I’ve tried ordering her chicken and such but have learned not to waste the money. I make sure she has enough protein at her other meals and then let her gorge on fries. She loved it.

When we were done eating snow was falling and everything was gorgeous. We came home and had our dessert and then went to bed. A busy day for a little girl, who is now two. And more presents the next day, because we celebrated Epiphany!
