Birthday Surprise (part 4, the end!)

When the girls came out after they had changed, it was a flurry of activity as they got their sleeping bags and blankets all set up.

Then Alya and Rebecca set up all the food, talk about a spread!

Hot dogs, chicken, corn on the cob, pizza, bananas (of course!), cupcakes and candy bars.  Plus a nice assortment of smoothies, sodas and lemonade.  The girls did a terrific job in getting everything ready, I was impressed.

Everyone who wanted something to eat made up a plate–there were some interesting combinations:

In case you are wondering where Cassandra’s glasses are–she recently got some contacts to wear for cheerleading and decided that this would be an excellent way to test out the ability to sleep in them.  She still prefers her glasses though, she said that contacts are a lot of work, but she doesn’t have to worry about them flying off when doing a flip!

Once everyone was situated, it was time to start the movie.  Any ideas as to what was showing?

Of course!!!

When the movie was over, they all asked if they could watch Despicable Me 2.  It was still early enough, so we went ahead and watched it.  By the time the second movie was over with, there wasn’t much food left!

And the garbage can was full.

After the movies were done, the girls talked and laughed until they all fell asleep.  This is what the living room looked like around midnight:

I think the girls all had a great time.  Happy Birthday Cassandra!!  Now to figure out where to put all of her presents…

Special thanks to Evil Twin for bringing her girls to the party and helping out with everything!  In case you were wondering, the bananas are banana flavored candy, the cupcakes are Trader Joe’s Mini Peanut Butter cups that I “iced” using yellow candy melts and the eyes are Wilton’s Minion Royal Icing Decorations.  The candy bars are Hershey Miniatures wrapped with a free printable that I found here

  1. Thanks! We had a lot of fun with it. This is what happens when a little idea gets completely out of hand! 😉 It all started with a sleeping bag…

    • See, I said the cart would come in handy. I already have two more things to use it for fairly soon too, so I would say it was a good investment!

  2. Just a thank you for inviting us to Cassandra’s party. The girls all had a good time, and the photo shoot was a hoot. After you posted that Cassandra was wearing contacts Zoee told me that she would like to get them also. This is a big step for Zoee as she is the one who said “No Way to Ear Piercing”. Since she recently lost her raspberry glasses, can she be trusted to be responsible for keeping her contacts safe? Should we give her a second chance?

    • We’re glad you all could come. As for the contacts–they aren’t hard to take care of, but Cassandra said she still prefers her glasses. She had an incident at practice though where they went flying across the gym and she thought they were smashed. She decided contacts might be a good idea for activities after that.

  3. This is so cute. Who can resist a sleepover with movies and candy! Brings me back to the good old days when we used to stay up all night and giggle about which boys we liked. 🙂 Cassandra will absolutely love her new contacts, for sure. Fabulous photo storr! I love all the effort you put into the details. 🙂 They girls all look so cute and cozy tucked in their sleeping bags. 🙂

    • I remember those parties well, we had them starting in jr. high and all the way through high school. We had an annual one called the “homecoming pity party”–anyone in our group who didn’t get asked to homecoming was invited. Fun times!

      Thanks! I had a lot of fun coming up with ideas of different things to do. I finally had to draw the line somewhere though, I was getting out of hand! 😉
