Eight is great!

We Adelyn had a sleepover birthday party Friday, May 5th. She invited 4 girls from class and 2 of her other friends (one couldn't make it). Six girls was a gracious plenty to host for this mama! 
 How is she turning 8 in just a couple of days?

 These cuties dined on individual pizzas, grapes, goldfish, and pretzels. 

 Have to show off James and his handsome haircut

 After eating, they did a little craft. They painted these small wooden trays and selected craft paper. I used mod podge to glue to the bottom of the tray. They turned out so cute!

 After that, it was ice cream time! The girls made sundaes
 Make a wish, Adelyn!
 Fay, Mae, Adelyn, Ava, Chandler, and Addy

 Present time!
 I planned some Minute to Win It games. In this one, they put tights with golf balls on their heads and had to knock over water bottles. 

After this, they watched Moana and didn't go to sleep until 12:30 a.m! I slept in James's room to keep an ear/eye out for them. I woke up a million times, always worried someone would be scared. The girls woke up at 6:20 a.m. Who needs sleep?

 Breakfast was waffles, muffins, donut holes, and fruit

 Then we played more games! They played Telestrations. OMG, they LOVED this game. (and I do too!)
 Another Minute to Win It game was sucking Sixlets from one cupcake liner to the other with a straw
 The final game was clipping each other with clothespins. The team to do the most in a minute won. 

 Then they just played until the parents came at 9:30 to get their girls (and hopefully nap later on!)
SUCH a sweet, well mannered group of friends! I think we all had a great time!

Her actual birthday was Thursday, May 11th. She woke up to a birthday breakfast
And of course, we squeezed in gift opening before 7:20 a.m school departure. She begged for a Lego table (to keep hers separate from James's). Sweet girl got her wish! (and we didn't break the bank, as the table is used and we just bought new base plates) 

I picked Adelyn up from school a little early and treated the kids to ice cream at Culvers. YUM!
 After tumbling class, we met Seth's parents at Rice for birthday dinner. Grandma and Grandpa got her the Lego Friends hotel. It has 2,783,783 pieces and she couldn't be more excited
  Make a wish, Adelyn! 

Grandma stopped by after dinner with the rest of her gift- a tumbling mat! Life is good. 
Cousin sleepover on a SCHOOL NIGHT! Friday was field day and these two were off to school together!
Adelyn received one more special gift. My parents got her a "smart" watch for kids. It has a pedometer, games, calendar, camera, and is pretty much the coolest thing ever for an 8 year old!
