Although this was supposed to be a no presents party, each of the girls insisted on getting her a little something. They sat on the floor and played spin the horn to see who's present she would open first. She was ecstatic to receive a grey Webkins kitty to replace the one she lost on top of the school. She also received a lovely bracelet and necklace set in her favorite color - purple!, and an adorable tin full of special goodies and trinkets.
These girls are so goofy! I couldn't get a group shot with all of them smiling, as they were determined to wear their party hats on their faces. They look like a group of Dodo birds.
Each of the girls had a different bead kit from which they created necklaces or whatever else they could come up with. It was fun to see thier individual creativity as no one copied the pattern that was included in each kit.
With more stickers and embellishments than any girl could want, they had a blast decorating and personalizing the mini albums Felicity and I made for them. I took pictures throughout the party and printed up pictures on my little printer for them so they would have photos for their albums. Some of the girls used the albums for a diary, using stickers to put the name of a cute boy they like on the page. Lots of giggling and whispering at the kitchen table.
After the parents collected these party goers, Isabelle passed out for a much needed afternoon nap, and I sat back to survey the damage. Cake crumbs everywhere, and packaging and paper all over the kitchen table. But over all there was little cleanup, and most important, the afternoon had been a success!
