Madeleine turned 8 on the 4th, and she decided it was high time to host her first slumber party. I agreed, reluctantly, since I was pretty sure there wouldn't be much slumbering that night.
We started the evening with a snack - cookies and milk, in a sprinkle crusted rim. They ate the sprinkles and left the milk.
I surprised them with a special kind of night-light...glow sticks in balloons!
I had to laugh because at the very late hour of 9 pm, the girls were begging for some shut eye! I guess I wore the out with all those stories of the good ol' days when I was a little girl.
In the morning, the official party started. They made decorations for the party.
I painted their nails.
They made hair barrettes an lip gloss.
Of course there were presents and cupcakes.
Here are the gals (and Graedon).
It's fun to be eight!
