Our First Slumber Party
B had her 9th birthday at the end of the month, and we had a party for her last Friday. It was a slumber party for the first time. She invited 4 girls and 3 could come, so it turned out to be a great little party! B wanted to have a "Spa Slumber Party," with a foot whirpool and lotions and things. She wanted to have baked potatoes for dinner, cookie cake, pancakes for breakfast, and buttery popcorn. Her wish was my command.
This was my favorite picture from the party. I said, "Hey! Let's get a picture with the presents and the girls." So they're lining up and I joked that little L should do the splits in the front. She said, "Okay!" She had to hold there a long time while I got the rest of them lined up!
This is B with the gift bags she made for the guests. Inside was a scrubby pouf, a bottle of nail polish, a pack of gum, a chapstick, and some toe separators for polishing toenails.
B decided to give out door prizes---stuff from her room! She drew out their names and gave away little trinkets. This was just an idea she had that evening.
Here's the baked potato dinner. The girls are topping the spuds. :-)
I made the cookie cake and then they decorated their own piece with lots of frosting and icing and sprinkles.
Happy Birthday, B!
Then they did the foot whirlpool. It was very relaxing. :-)
They watched "Sky High" on the Disney Channel. They also all got out paper and drew pictures.
The pancakes came in the morning. I made special letter pancakes for the girls and J.
B and her friend A, ate some fruit the next morning, too.
