Emma's Party Pics...

We couldn't have asked for better weather for Emma's birthday slumber party. We spent Saturday morning setting up the dining tables and decorations.

Chris helped with duties that required climbing and moving furniture.

We also kept him busy with grilling duties (amazing how much food 12 girls can go through in one evening). 

Emma wanted an ice cream sundae bar with lots of topping choices.

The girls also enjoyed playing volleyball and having a marshmallow roast around our fire pit.





There are lots of thank you notes to be written.




Happy 14th Birthday, Emma!  You have lovely girlfriends and we certainly had fun celebrating your birthday.

Looks like a good time was had by all! Ice cream Sundaes and roasting marshmallows sound like the perfect thing for this age!
When my daughter was in 8th grade, we had a make up party. We invited a MK lady (she was also a favorite art teacher from their elementary school) to come and share basic skin care and a few natural looking makeup techniques. I have a picture of about 7-8 girls sitting in our dining room with a facial mask on and big grins on their faces. Girls parties are so much fun!
