Pancakes, PJ’s & the Polar Express

‘Twas the Wednesday before Christmas and all through the house…. many children were stirring and they were all covered in syrup!!!!

OK, so that is a terrible poem, but it is factual. I decided to host a little soiree for some of Ben, Grace & Noah’s friends one evening. Everyone showed up in their coziest pajamas. We served pancakes (lots and lots and lots of pancakes). After all the bellies were full, we made ourselves comfortable in the living room and watched the Polar Express. It was such a fun night. The kids were so good and really kept the stickiness to a minimum. Towards the end of the night we brought out the last “p”… POPCORN! Who doesn’t love popcorn, right? Grace could live on the stuff. I think she may have eaten two whole bags by herself.

Pancake central. This is where all the magic happens, people.

Ben was so excited that his best friend came all the way from Corpus to attend the party!

Four boy babies. There’s something in the water, apparently. We had Luke (14 months), Rylan (6 months), Noah & Cole (both 9 months).

Grace & Grant. I’m praying that these two will get married one day. No joke.

The entire crew. I think the final count was 8 mommies and 17 kids! I lost track of the number of pancakes and bags of popcorn.

Such concentration.

Thank you to all of my sweet mommy friends who joined in the chaos. We’ll have to think about making it an annual tradition!
