Boo's Nine! She's grown up a lot this year. She LOOKS older, don't you think?
It was Boo's year for a friend party, but on the day it was planned, the handful of friends invited were either sick, out of town, or had a prior commitment. It turned out perfectly though, that her favorite friend L was able to come, and it ended up being a glorified playdate, which the girls really enjoyed!
I baked cupcakes and we had these oodles of sprinkles from a pack I bought on clearance at Michael's. Goody bags, streamers and polka-dot balloons rounded out the decorations. The girls ate pizza, decorated cupcakes, painted fingernails and worked on some crafts. I stayed out of the way and just let them do their thing. No games, no tight schedule. It was just right.
L is the youngest in her family, so she didn't even mind having Diddles tag along, and even made her feel special by painting her toenails! I was grateful for her willingness, as Boo wasn't too thrilled with the idea of little sister around.
Hooray for being nine!
