Taylor's 11th Birthday Party

This year since Matt was going to be gone for Taylor's birthday I wanted to do something low key. Also Taylor had a couple of big ticket items on her wish list so we made her choose between a big party and the things on her wish list. She opted to have a slumber party (don't know why they are called this as there wasn't much slumbering going on)!

Friday night 6 of her friends arrived. They proceeded to spend the next few hours laughing and doing a few crafts. After a gourmet dinner of pizza and birthday cookie cake we moved on to opening presents and doing more crafts. I didn't get many pictures and I am sorry that I didn't I just was busy trying to get everything else done.

Finally at 1 AM I was able to get all 7 girls to sleep so that I could go to sleep as well.

Here are a few of the pictures I did manage to get

Sounds like a fun time. I have fond memories of slumber parties when I was around Taylor's age. I'm actually looking forward to sleepovers with my girls!
I can't believe Taylor is 11. Seems like just yesterday she was just hitting double digits and you brought her a cake to H2H.
She's a beautiful young lady, inside and out!:)

That does look like fun! I don't think my mom and dad ever let me have more than one or two girls spend the night. She'll always remember this birthday! And 1 a.m. isn't so bad...good for you!
