Slumber Party

Since I know tomorrow is going to be a super busy day and I have much to post seeing as it's Kaitlyn's 8th birthday I figured I'd get started tonight and post a few pictures from Kaitlyn's party tonight. Her first slumber party. It was me, 7 girls and Caleb going to see Space Chimps at the theater. Decent enough movie but everyone else was there to see Batman. I thought about sneaking over but I was the only adult so I had to stay...

I have nothing against large families but right now I'm glad these aren't all mine. Kaitlyn said that when I entered the theater with a trail of kids she heard someone ask, "Why does that lady have so many kids?" Good question :)



The cake - can you tell it's a safari theme? We're ALL about animals this year. I found out yesterday the cupcakes I wanted were not available (some safari kit game thing) so this morning was a mad scramble to come up with something but I have to say that Harris Teeter came through and did a great job! (yes, I know Target has good cakes but their animal one was lame - very much for a 3-year-old)



Completely posed picture. She smiled till I took the picture.



Presents! Isn't that why we have parties anyway? For the gifts! Seriously she liked what she got. It's nice that she's still easy to please.



All those girls and then Caleb. Someday this boy will have some more boys around...



Goody bags!



Two girls couldn't stay the night but for those that could we had chocolate covered strawberries! Let's see dinner, popcorn at the theater, cake for dessert followed by smoothies and strawberries with chocolate. I'd say they had plenty to eat!



So much more tomorrow including a trip to the zoo and hopefully the reveal of the new bedroom. And, oh yea, Kaitlyn turns 8!!
