Jane and Sydney's birthday fell on the same weekend as the local Rudolph Run. We decided to invite a small group of friends, run the race together, and then have a big pancake breakfast.
Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate with us, and the race go cancelled. We opted for plan B which was a pancake breakfast and a some Rudolph painting!
The girls arrived and we started with Fruit Loop necklaces.
Then it was time for pancakes and sausage. Casey was our expert chef!
Finally, we painted our Rudolphs. I was so impressed with how well the kids did. They were so creative!
After the initial stress of changing plans, the party turned out to be a success. The kids were well-behaved, and Jane and Sydney had fun!
The next day was Jane and Syd's actual birthday, and Clare's piano recital. Clare played Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree, and she did great. She amazes me with her calmness and ability to rise to the occasion when performing in front of people.
Following the piano recital, we headed back to our house for the family party!
It was the busiest weekend we've had in a long time, but it was full of fun things to celebrate!
