...to my oldest "baby" girl! She turned 8 over the weekend and I can't believe it. My girls are growing up before my very eyes... way too fast. I'm sure you mothers know what I'm talking about. It's like one day, they are your baby...and the next, they are all "grown up." It's fun to watch but also sad to think how fast the time flies.
On to the fun stuff...we got a room at the Marriott and had a couple of her girlfriends join us for a slumber party...what fun! We stopped off at a fun pizza joint to celebrate with pizza & cake first, then the girls swam, got mani/pedi's, made jewelry, had a neon light show with glow in the dark sticks, and watched a little tv before crashing around 11pm. Thanks to cousin DH & Fam in California for giving us this idea! And thanks to LA for helping me out so much, I couldn't have done it without you!
I loved it because my house didn't get messed up and the girls had so much fun. The best part I think was the wonderful breakfast buffet the next morning. The girls totally felt like princesses with all three of their drinks (smoothie, OJ, & water) in front of them, hehe. And suprisingly the room didn't look like a tornado hit it when we left.
So don't know if anyone else has done this for a birthday party but I'd love to hear your stories...I'm always up for good party ideas (and I'll need a lot since I've got three girls and now this to live up to :-)
I'm in the b-day mood, so I'm off the make some more cards for my Etsy shop. Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their day!
