The girls looked so cute in their sports uniforms - everything from basketball to soccer to dance and cheer. They started out the night coloring placemats I had made with their names on them. Then they decorated a coozie for a waterbottle and made a bead "necklace" for it. After that, they made mini-pizzas out of biscuit dough, sauce and toppings. After eating their yummy creations, we played a few games, opened presents and ate delicious cupcakes that my girl's grandmother (a.k.a. "Nanny") made.
After the "party" was over, the girls changed into their pj's then spread out their sleeping bags in our living room. They ate popcorn and watched Disney's Mulan. After that, I gave them about 30-45 minutes to play until lights out. Can you imagine 14 little giggly girls laughing, dancing, screaming and being so silly?!?!
Poor Steve locked himself in our bedroom and was probably re-thinking why he ever married me! The girls must have wore themselves out, though, because miraculously, most of the girls fell asleep by 11:00! That has to be a world record! The next morning, the girls were up by about 7 and wanted to watch Mulan II before going home. So they got to eat a pancake breakfast while watching the movie in their sleeping bags.
This was "M's" first slumber party and I have to admit I've been putting off having slumber parties just because of some concerns I have with them but I thought back to slumber parties I have had in the past and they bring back such good memories - so I caved. The girls seemed to have a fun time and it was all worth it to see the smiles on "M's" face.
