The Sleepover

On Monday, August 8, 2011, Katherine invited several of her friends from our homeschool group over for her first ever birthday sleepover.  Katherine decided she wanted a big city shopping themed party, so with that we were off.  I brought part of the skyline decorations (paper covered boxes) used during this years New York themed vacation bible school to help transform the dinning room into a city full of places to shop!  Wes took care of decorating the table complete with a personalized mug for each attendee with their first initial and a party chandelier above.  Katherine was ready for her guest to arrive and the party began about 6:15pm that evening.

Katherine and her friends enjoyed a variety of activities over the next eighteen hours.  The girls ate, laughed, swam, watched movies, danced,  giggled, gave manicures & pedicures, made gift bags, played games including bible drill, and slept very little! They stayed awake until 2:30 AM, which was Katherine's time of birth nine years ago!  All but one of the girls was awake and up by 8 AM.  Sleep wasn't a high priority that night.

The first ever birthday party sleepover was a success!

Our family ended the day with Katherine's birthday dinner.  Her favorite meal is steak especially steak grilled by her dad!
