7th Birthday Slumber Party

The girls wanted nothing more then to have a slumber party for their birthday party. I was all about that idea. I loved the idea of inviting just a few friends over for an intimate evening of "camping out" and having fun. Lola and Ellie decided they wanted to have a camp out slumber party complete with a tent, sleeping bag, smores, yarn crafts, bamboo trees, and glow-in-the-dark ring toss. One word described this evening... FUN! It was so fun- pure, seven year-old fun! It was a JOY to watch Lola and Ellie enjoy every minute of this birthday celebration. 

All the girls received matching PJs  and a flashlights for "emergencies"
 Lola is not all excited! 
 Camp yarn and stick projects was one of Lola and Bailey's favorites things to do this evening. 

We called them "God's Eyes" at camp when I was growing up. 

Lola and Ellie opened presents with their friends. 
 Crazy Tessa! 

 Tessa and Ellie are two-peas-in-a-pod. This Card. Crazy Girls.

 Bailey gave the girls this "fort maker" too much fun! 

 It's not an official slumber party without a pillow fight!

 Dinner- classic camping menu- 

Movie, popcorn, and fun in the tent

 Glow-in-the-dark balloons and ring toss.

 SMORES! (oven baked)

These girls... wore me out... but it was SO much FUN!
All five girls will swear they stayed up all night-  To quote Lola, "I only rested my eyes a bit when my eyelashes started hurting" Though to their credit I threw in the towel at 11:45 pm, so I am really not sure how late they stayed up, but needless to say they were very tired girls come Sunday afternoon. 
Happy Birthday Lola and Ellie! 
I am so glad you had so much fun!

Happy Seventh Birthday!

Good Morning birthday girls! 

 Birthday Breakfast! 

Off to school for a filled school day full of birthday fun!
First off, the art teacher just happened to be teaching a lesson on their birthday. Mrs. Ahlstrom let the girls pick the project because it was their birthday- They were so excited!

For snack recess Lola wanted to bring the class coffee cake muffins... Yum!

 Nothing like upside birthday flips! 

I went out and brought back the girls lunch for their birthday, 
so they brought in their friends and we all had a birthday lunch together. 

Ellie's turn- she brought cupcakes for the class to eat after school! A little mishap with the homemade cupcakes as ants found their way to them before the end of school... needless to say I had to run to the store to grab cupcakes that did't have ants on them. We saved the day and Ellie too got to celebrate with her classmates. 

Back at home there was a family party waiting them. Emma, Grandma, Uncle Drew, Uncle Mark, Auntie Missi, Aiden, Liam, Sydney, and Candice all came over for pizza and cake! 

 Present time .... these girls are SOOO spoiled. 

Cake time! 
Lola wanted an ice cream pie, Ellie wanted a mini bunt cake, and I made one extra cake to actually feed our guests.  
 ... a little whip cream fun...

Happiest of birthdays to these two beautiful girls.
 I simply can't believe they are 7 and I can't wait to see what this next year will bring!
