Pajama Party

Today Eli had his birthday party with all of his "peeps." It was a pajama party and all the kids had a total blast. Everyone came in their jammies, of course (me too!), and brought a stuffed animal along. Ben made yummy belgian waffles and we had story time, a sleeping bag race, played musical stuffed animals, freeze dance, and made little picture frames. My sister made the most adorable cupcakes that looked like little sleeping children and the kids took home a little box of cereal in their goodie bags. We had fifteen kids there, plus our own, and I was amazed at how well behaved and polite the kids all were! Eli is so blessed to have great friends! He really enjoyed the party and was very appreciative.

You are a brave woman Danelle to tackle that many kids at once! Looks like a really fun party. Eli's lucky to have such a fun Mom!

What a fun birthday party! That was a ton of kids and the cupcakes were really cute!! I loved your new crafting, too! You do good work! I've been knitting for a few years, but have not done a hat yet, although I've been wanting to. Those umbrellas are really cute, too, I saw them in a magazine recently and was just thinking about how cute they are!
