party on!

Emmalie finally had her birthday party over the weekend, only 2 months late, LOL. (With me having problems with my neck, and her various friends going out of town, this was the first weekend since her birthday that worked for everyone!) It was our first time hosting a slumber party. We've had plenty of sleepovers with just one friend, but this time there were five 13-year-old girls running around the house. I think they all had a good time!

We started the party at our town's indoor pool, and we all swam/played there for 2 hours:
The girls... Em, Jamie, Carly, Tori, and Julia:
Ben had a blast! : Nick did, too:
Then we came back to the house. Em handed out the goody bags ~ they were filled with nail polish, Lip Smackers, body lotion, fun socks, nail files, toe "separators" (for painting toenails), candy, mini notebooks, and cool pencils:
The girls spent a lot of time hanging out in Em's room, listening to their iPods, texting, and giggling! (Em didn't do any texting, though... she has MEAN parents who don't think 13-year-olds need their own cell phones, heheh.)
We ordered some pizza for supper:
And then Em opened her gifts:

She chose to have an angel food cake with Cool Whip and strawberries, yum!

Apparently the kids still hadn't had enough sugar after that because they talked George into going to the store to buy s'more fixins and building a fire for them:
Then it was "spa" time. While they watched the movie Twilight, the girls soaked their feet in warm water, used a sugar scrub and other lotions, and then painted their toenails:

I made an avocado face mask that Emmalie found a recipe for (basically avocados and olive oil). Everyone watched her apply it:
as well as cucumber slices for her eyes:
Tori was the only other one brave enough to try the avocado mask:
but Jamie and Julia did try the cucumbers:
Nick had to get in on the act, too, LOL! The girls were nice, and let him watch the movie with them:
After that, it was time to get out *more* snacks... M&M's, pretzels, popcorn.... The movie ended around midnight, and the girls retreated into Emmalie's room. I finally went to bed around 2am, but the girls were still going strong! In the end, they were up until almost 5 am, yikes!
The next morning, I made overnight french toast and bacon for everyone. The girls stayed until noon or so. I'm guessing they all took a nap when they got back home, LOL!
