Birthday Slumber Party!

The girls had their combined birthday slumber party last weekend! They had invited eight friends but only six could make it, and believe me six was plenty!

We made homemade personal pizzas for dinner, everyone got to put whatever toppings they wanted on their pizza. A trick I learned from my mom, having nine kids that all liked different things she's got tons of little tricks like that! Thanks mom!

While they were eating they watched Cinderella III: A Twist In Time.

We rented Disney Princesses for Wii, and the girls had a blast playing that all evening. They all did a really good job of sharing and taking turns. It also helped that we let them get on the Internet and play on

After the girls blew out the candles they opened up their presents. They got some really cool toys and things.

The girls picked just a plain white cake in a heart shape with flowers, but it had to be decorated with yellow and pink icing. Because pink is Mia's favorite color and yellow is Emma's. Well, I cheated I had leftover icing from their cake for the family party on Monday so I used the leftover to ice this cake. We also had cookies and cream ice cream to go with the cake.

Three of the girls had to leave early the next morning because they had soccer games so they actually went to bed at a decent time. We took the TV/VCR into their room and let them vote on a movie to watch while they were "falling asleep." They chose Pochantas.

They were actually all asleep by the time I went to bed. I had to stay up making the rest of the bread into cinnamon rolls for the next morning.

I had to get up early to cook the cinnamon rolls, most of the girls were already awake whispering and playing in the girls' bedroom.

After breakfast they played more Wii and Computer games. Until it was late enough that we could go outside and break open the pinata.

Then it was more playing until moms came to get them. All in all I think everyone had a good time!

Mia and Emma chose a Unicorn pinata!

And of course the silly picture! It cracks me up every time I look at it!
