Blondie turns 9
Blondie had a birthday and since I am so behind with my blogging, I haven't posted about it yet. She decided to have her friends come over for swimming, a movie, and sleep-over. Our neighbors were kind enough to let us use their pool with all these crazy (but cute) girls. Then we came home and ate tostadas for dinner. For her cake, we decided to give each girl a mini cake to decorate. I bought cans of decorator frosting (making it super easy on my part!) and let them go at it! Add sprinkles of all kinds (cool flavored ones) and mini gummi bears and-voila! They had a BLAST with this!! They hardly ate any cake, but had all the fun decorating it.
That was fine by me! We had ice cream with it, of course. Then we watched Aquamarine (Blondie's choice). Then we opened presents (she got some great stuff!) and some of the girls had to go home at this point. The ones that were staying the night bedded down and they told each other stories. I even made up a story for the occassion, entitled, "The Princess and the Cheese". Maybe I'll post it one of these days. Or maybe I'll publish it and you'll just have to buy it at my booksigning... Anyway, they stayed up way too late, as slumber parties are notorious for, right? In the morning I took the easy route again and had a selection of those cute little cereal boxes that are reserved for special occassions and the kids played until their moms picked them up. I love you Blondie!! Hope you had a SUPER birthday!
