Slumber Party with 5 year olds
My baby turned five this week. We had a birthday week celebration. Last Sunday we celebrated with family. Wednesday (her actual birthday) we went to american adventures and came home for cupcakes and presents. Friday, the grand finale, we had a houseful of five year olds. Claire's one and only wish was for all of her friends to come for a slumber party. While we couldn't host "all her friends" I was stoked to include these fabulous girls. (local addresses playing some small part in the invitee list...unexperienced in five year old slumber parties, I was hoping to shorten the distance of our midnight trips home...) But we passed with flying colors. We only lost one and she went home well before midnight. And she wasn't scared, just too cool.
How dang cute are these kids???!!! they were all giggles all night long... Madeline... our oldest. and coolest. she was the only 6 year old. her baby sister, Katie Madison, Claire's long time BFF. Isabelle. New BFF. Partners in Crime on the school bus. baby sister to the birthday queen, Charlotte. and there she is. Miss Claire. Thinking to slide down the slide backwards. she did it! one more time! Madeline. Katie. Madison. Isabelle. Recap. They played. Made sticker foam crafts. Ate birthday cookie cake. Watched a movie. Fell asleep by 10:30. Woke up at 7:30 for donuts and chocolate milk. And I think I had as much fun as they did.
