Pancakes & Pajamas

Catherine Ellis celebrated her third birthday with a pancakes and pajamas birthday party this past weekend - it was great fun for all!  We have been talking for weeks about her birthday party and how much fun it was going to be.  I'm sure like most 3-year-olds, Catherine Ellis loves to stay in her pajamas - that's the best thing about Saturday mornings- wearing pj's for a long time.  So, the day finally arrived for her long-awaited birthday party (her birthday was the 9th, but with Easter we had to postpone the party a few weeks) she was up much earlier than normal for her (6:30 a.m).  And once her feet hit the floor she never looked back!

I didn't do a great job of capturing all the food, activities and fun, but I assure you all - she had a blast and so did every other child that came. We had a bouncy house, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, a sand box and coloring activities - there was something for everyone!

I'll let the pictures tell you the story - thank yo to all of our friends and family that traveled near and far to celebrate Catherine Ellis's third year of life!

because I am fearfully
and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well."
Psalm 139: 14


  1. Great recap of a wonderful party! The boys had a blast. Everything was too cute! Thanks for including Team Brown! (PS would love those balloon pictures when you have a chance . . . so no rush, ha!).

  2. We had a blast!!!!! Thanks again!

  3. This party looks like so much fun. I'm so happy that the weather cooperated. I think my favorite part is that CE had a wardrobe change at some point - like a true hostess!!

    We are certainly ready for a Facetime date!
