Happy Birthday to you!

Toothsome number 2 finally had her 9th birthday party.  She wanted a late over and that is all the inspiration she gave me.  So, this is what I came up with:    

Here she is with the party favors.

The party favor:  bowl, spatula, whisk, hot pad, chocolate candy bars and recipe for Chocolate/Almond Pie.  All cooking items from Ikea.  I love Ikea.  

Pizza for dinner

The left over pizza (four and 1/2 boxes) because I have no ability to figure out how many pizzas to order for 8 little girls.  FYI:  Little girls don't eat much food.

Playing charades.  Toothsome #1 was a great sport and actually did this with them because these cute girls wanted him too.  

Painting aprons.

One of the finished products

Opening presents.  Notice Toothsome #4, she insisted on wearing her sparkly, feathered dance leotard over her PJ's.  She was very fancy.  

Decorating mini cakes

Watching The Princess Bride.  FYI:  Little girls will eat a ton (six bags worth) of microwave popcorn and lemonade Capri Suns.

Showing their final (dry) aprons.

8 girls (plus a very eager almost 4 year old) and four hours in my house means Dentist husband and the boys went and played video games at a local arcade.  There was also some occasional spying on us done by the boys with me getting phone calls on my cell phone from the home phone from them.   All in all a successful party.

Wow!!!! Now I think I can do the Halloween Party my 10-year-old wants! (My "sorry, we're not trick-or-treating on Sunday this year, do you want to have a party another day instead?" option.)

Also, I love the leftover pizzas. Our last church party had about 40 pizzas, with about 25 leftover. They had the same problem. :)
