{Pancakes and Pajama Party and a Little more Fall}

My granddaughter Mallory will be celebrating her 9th birthday on November 23rd but we celebrated her special day with a Pancake and Pajama party over the weekend. 





My daughter Melissa had a sweet lady make her the cutest cookies ever. Pj's and pancake cookies! The kids loved them. (And some of of us older kids did too!) 

My niece Stephanie made her cute cake!  



The kids had a great variety of breakfast goodies. Pancakes, Sausage, Cereal, Strawberries, Blueberries, Blackberries, three different kinds of Donuts, Cake, Cookies, Milk and Orange Juice. Us big kids had COFFEE!   


Of course everyone came in their PJ's in which I loved!!!

 And Nana just had to be a little different with a bow in her hair....(that silly Nana)


 Here's a few collages of our Pancake and PJ party.






Mallory's Nana and her Grammy enjoyed every minute of this sweet girl's special day!
 


I shared a little Fall in my kitchen last week so this week I'd like to share just a little more Fall to finish out the season. 
If you missed last week's post you can see it here... http://creationsbycindyphotography.blogspot.com/2016/11/fall-tablescape.html

 




I can't believe that Thanksgiving is right around the corner can you? I surely do know that our Lord knew what He was doing but if I could have had any input I think I would have told Him to maybe spread out Thanksgiving and Christmas just a tad! LOL! 

I am looking forward to our Thanksgiving with our family. It just seems that it's that time of the year when no one expects anything from you and no one is in a hurry. Time is taken to stop and reflect on the many blessings that we have in our life and fellowship seems to be more important than the turkey and pumpkin pie. As the holiday is approaching fast I am all the more prayerful and mindful of those around me that are less fortunate. Sometimes others truly do need our help and oftentimes it's more of just being willing to simply encourage another person or family. My challenge to you all over this Thanksgiving season is to truly count your blessings....and then GO and be a BLESSING to someone else. 
 

I will be making my rounds to visit with you all over the next few days because #1, I am nosy and I want to see what you all are up too (LOL)  and #2, I love visiting with you all. So many talented blogger's that displays so much creativity, talent, gifts and love to others! I will take a bloggy break for a few weeks. As of this Thursday I will be off of work until the end of November! Of course my list is full of things to do. Deer hunting, Thanksgiving prep, Christmas shopping (which I am almost through) but plan to do some wrapping, baking, family, grands, friends and well I am never BORED I can assure you. I hope that you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and remember, 
Psalm 100:4  Enter His gates with thanksgiving, And His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him; bless His name.

Happy Thanksgiving!  

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  5. You and your family have such fun...love those owlie pajamas! I have that same Give Thanks sign, but I took some white paint and went over the wooden part (with my finger) so it would show up better! So glad you're going to get so much time off work. Enjoy, sweet Friend.

  9. Yes, You are never bored! That's the cutest party idea ever. A pajama party with extra trimmings! Those cookies are amazing and look delicious too. Perfect party for this age. My grandmother never got to attend any of my birthday parties so I think your grands are extra blessed to have you in all the fun.
    Have a great Thanksgiving sweet friend. Yes, it is a busy busy time. You are well ahead of me.

    1. LOL Bonnie. My daughters are always saying that when I retire (which I only work 3 days a week now) that I will never long for something to do and that's a fact. Thanks for stopping by Bonnie.

  15. A PJ and pancake party is so fun!! I would love to have one of those....maybe when my granddaughters get older. Happy Thanksgiving to you! I know you will be blessed over the holiday and you will surely be a blessing to everyone around you. I am not ready for any of the holidays but I will get through one day at a time!

  16. What fun! I'd love to join one of my granddaughters for such a fun celebration. I think I'll suggest it to my daughter and daughter-in-law! Yes, Thanksgiving does come a bit close to Christmas. We're having a very small, quiet Thanksgiving this year - just my dear, little mama, my sweetheart and me. She can't handle the big family gatherings anymore so we are going to keep it short and sweet and tailored to her needs and tastes. My sweetheart and I may be able to slip away to one of our kids' homes later in the day after my sweet mom has gone home to rest but not sure if that will work out. Whatever happens, we will have much to be thankful for.
