We originally planned the Big Breakfast Bash to be on November 11th, but we had just had Baby Flint on the 7th! So...we changed it to December 2nd. Which was actually just about a week after their birthdays instead of before.
We made the cakes. Pella wanted pancakes and Tuff got eggs and bacon!
Dada was ready with the Omelet Bar and the make your own pancake creation griddles with three different batters was hot. (Wait! I'm just now realizing that Dada didn't wear pajamas! - What?)
Nonnie had come a little early to help us get everything prepped and the kids ate a first breakfast before everyone started arriving. Before their big day, Dada took Pella and Tuff to go buy them some brand new jammies. Tuff picked out truck jammies and Pella found Pikachu ones to match her biggest brother!
Pella's great breakfast idea - Donut cake balls. Which was actually so much easier than regular cake balls because you just use already made donut holes! Mama made Tuff three whale pancakes during the course of the party! You could make whatever shape you wanted with the batter in squeeze bottles, but Tuff just wanted the whales.
Grandparent corner. Grandma had recently had surgery, but they were able to come and so did Mimi. And Flint is fast asleep.
Breakfast time! This part actually took up most of the party- eating, making fun pancakes and omelets and more eating! That might be Tuff and Pella's favorite thing to do anyway.
We played a flip the pancake onto the target game which we called "Pancake Flop". It was actually a pretty hard game! We even had an adult round.

Singing to our 6 and 3 year olds!
Then it was present time and everyone went home, because our church's Christmas Women's Tea was that afternoon and Nonnie had decorated a table for us!
Pella, you are such a bright light to our family! You are a caring, loving, joyful girl who is helpful and sweet and cuddly. I love to see you taking care of your little brothers and helping around the house. You love to be a servant, you clean and paint and play with babies. This is your first year officially doing school - with your own list and you are amazing! You are already a great reader. You are in Sparks at Awana and are flying through your book memorizing God's Word. You have so many friends and are a pleasure to be around. We love you so much! We pray that you will always live life to the fullest for Jesus, Chuggy Lu! Happy 6th Birthday!
Tuff our Man of the Hour - every hour, every minute! You are a live, full energy, ball of fire, non-stop show! You make us roll on the floor laugh out loud all the time! You have some amazing dance moves, faces, phrases, poses and ways you do just about everything. Sometimes you're a handful, but you make life exciting indeed. You are always performing! You love to play guitar, dance, watch shows (maybe you like that a little too much) play with your brothers and sisters and "help" them. You love to do whatever the big kids do, but you like to call yourself one of the babies. You are a great big brother to Coaly and kiss him all the time. You are still learning how to sit still - one day! You did amazing this year at potty training and were determined to master it so you could go to Cubbies even though you were only two! We are so excited to see how you are going to use your bigger than life personality to glorify God! We love you, Tuffy! Happy 3rd Birthday!
