Happy Birthday Julie!

I can't believe that my little girl turned 8 today... crazy! She was so excited all week that I thought she'd burst before she had a chance to make it to her birthday party tonight!

Ian and I ran some errands this morning and spent the afternoon cleaning and setting up for her party. I baked her a two layer cake and had the first layer in the oven before they even left for school. [Oh yes. I am an awesome mother. And I even have a blister on my thumb from when I pulled the first cake out of the oven. Battle scars!] Ian decorated it with a High School Musical 3 theme and it looked awesome!

Her party went from 5:30-9:00 pm and she had five girlfriends over. They watched HSM3 and sang karaoke. So cute! Sam's friend came over and they played video games and watched movies downstairs.

Fifteen minutes into the party and there was a kid standing on my couch.


One would think that little girls are polite and sweet and demure. Not this bunch. They were rambunctious to say the least.

Julie had a wonderful time and everyone had gone home by 9:10pm.

I'd love a glass of wine to relax but I'm not sure I can stay awake for it!
