Well, we have finished all of Ava’s birthday celebrations.
We had a wonderful time sharing her special day (well, days…) with family, friends & schoolmates!
Her slumber party was a blast! Unfortunately, two of Ava’s friends ended up getting sick that day, so they couldn’t join us (we missed you Hannah & Anicka!). We ended up having 11 girls over for pizza & fun. We decorated tiaras, frosted & “sprinkled” cupcakes & danced to “High School Musical 1 & 2.” Those girls can really move!
We had 7 girls spend the night. Adam covered the family room floor with mattresses, where the girls set up their sleeping bags & pillows. We made hot cocoa with marshmellows & whipped cream & then settled down to watch “Enchanted.” I kinda figured they would all fall asleep during the movie.
I think the majority of the group fell asleep by 12:30. Ava & another friend though, stayed up until 2:30! I slept in the family room with the girls in case they woke up in the middle of the night scared or needing something. Thankfully, once they did fall asleep, they stayed asleep. So, we did didn’t have to make any middle-of-the night phone calls to parents.
The girls were up at 6 the next morning & were starving by 7. We made pancakes, cinnamon rolls & bacon. Then, they colored, painted & played throughout the morning until all the parents arrived.
The girls were really good. They were polite & respectful & such a sweet group. It took Adam & I all of Saturday to recover…
Garrett is already asking when his birthday is!
