Story told by: Lainey
I had my third birthday party today! (It was also Mommy’s 30th birthday. I told her that it could be her birthday after my party was done.) I invited all of my friends my age to celebrate in the fun with me.
The theme of the party was “Pancakes and Pajamas.” We had lots of breakfast food (including wonderful pancakes made by Daddy).
Mommy made eggs and bacon out of white chocolate, m&ms, and pretzels. Yum!
Cinnamon roll cupcakes!
Before the party started, I admired the gifts that had already accumulated from my family.
Daddy started on the pancakes!
While I waited for Daddy, I stayed busy with my American Girl catalog.
I also tested out the coloring sheet placemats for the party.
I also modeled my party pajamas. All of my guests were also coming in their PJs. So exciting!
Grandma came to visit a couple of days ago, so I’m thrilled she could be here for my party! She wasn’t going to wear her PJs for the party, but after some work, I convinced her to do it!
Debbie also came out for the week with Grandma! They were champs at helping prepare for my party.
Hazel and her mommy were the first guests to arrive. They had matching PJs, so they won the award for cuteness!
When everyone else arrived, they started enjoying the delicious food.
Hailey had some whipped cream with a pancake buried under there somewhere.
Daisy and Kylie brought their new little brothers (Wiley and Kasen).
As people finished their food, there were some activities for everyone. They could make fruit loop necklaces.
Kylie’s necklace was the perfect accessory to her Elsa PJs.
Daisy made a necklace, but wanted her mommy to wear it. Looks great!
There was also lots of coloring!
We had a doughnut-eating game where you were supposed to try to get a doughnut to fall off of the string without using your hands. Troy modeled for us. It turned out to be tricky for him to get it off of the string, so we decided to let all of the younger kids use their hands.
I took one bite of my doughnut, and then simply pulled it right through the string. Voila!
Kylie and Nora did great with this game, but Joseph didn’t want to participate…he simply wanted to eat a doughnut without all of the fuss.
We got a group picture with the party crew! It was fun to see everyone’s PJs.
Then it was time to open presents. I sure felt loved with all of these wonderful gifts!
After presents, everyone sang “Happy Birthday” to me.
It was tough to blow out three candles, but I made it happen! Everyone got to enjoy these delicious cinnamon roll cupcakes!
After cupcakes, it was time for my guests to leave. I had special treats for them to bring home.
I’m so grateful to all of my friends that attended my party. Thanks for kicking off my third year with me!
