As all of you know my oldest turned 13 last week. We had 15 girls spend the night Saturday night. While everyone was being dropped off we were under a Tornado Warning and it was a bit hectic. Thank goodness we have a basement! Finally the sun came out and the party began.
Katherine loves doing crafts so I had all the girls make their own personalized clipboards. This was a neat idea since it was a several step process of painting the boards with Modge Podge and then letting it dry then doing the same with the back and letting it dry. In between steps we cooked out hot dogs, opened gifts, played guitar hero and ate cookie cake.
(I only burned myself once with the glue gun!)
(All the girls with their clipboards)
(I had Rebecca and Abigale test out the photo
booth before the party started)When Katherine wrote her thank you notes she included the pictures of each girl that had been taken and we put in a group shot that I had taken. I went to Walmart at their self service photo kiosk and put "Katherine's 13th Birthday" at the bottom of the picture. It turned out cute.
The girls watched 13 going on 30 before they all fell asleep. I kind of warned them that they were not going to stay up to all hours since the next day was Mother's Day. I think it helped that all but three girls were on Katherine's soccer team and they had played two games in Arkansas that day.
So the girls took home a clipboard and had some fun photo's for their party favor.
My Aloha Questions are these....
