C's Sixth Birthday!

My baby, C, turned six on Tuesday! I can't believe he is 6...
He came down for a birthday breakfast of chocolate chip pancakes. Certainly not the normal fare around here! I made this placemat for him from pieces of felt I had and some ribbon. I also sprinkled confetti over everthing (but had cleaned up most of it by photo time!)I also tied a big ribbon around his seat...

I had talked to the boys after a crazy birthday party about maybe having smaller parties and they both fully embraced that idea. (phew!)
All C wanted to do for his big day was go to Build @ Bear with his friend T and go to Uno's for dinner. Done. Easy. stress free. Fabulous birthday choice! C had a blast and we were really able to make his day special! (and I didn't have to hire a magic clown...)

And here are the boys making their wishes on the hearts. They all had a great time and it wasn't at all overwhelming. Can't wait to find out what he picks for next year!
