Sunshine cake for number 9. (Halfway to adulthood, HOLD ME!) She planned her own party. This birthday girl is seriously amazing! She and her friends had a blast. (Our family celebration today paled in comparison)
A party game she crafted herself. Pin the Hat on the Birthday Girl. Her friends loved it! Complete with Justice scarf used as a blindfold.
What's a PJ party without manicures??
Have you heard of Silly Bandz? The newest craze. Seriously, I heard about them 3 days ago and frantically tried to find some for my birthday cutie, with no luck. Fortunately, her friends had her covered! These are like jelly bracelets, but they have a memory and snap back into shape when you remove them. They come in themed packs of 24. So far I've seen alphabet shapes, animal, princess, sun/moon/stars. The kids collect and trade them with each other.

She also got a pink lava lamp (cool, right?), a board game, some cool Justice scarves, a scrap-booking kit, message board, and a sand art kit. Seems like her friends know her VERY well already!!
Here they are on, with the candy bracelets they also made while watching Wizards of Waverly Place, The Movie.

I thought I would be able to maybe balance my accounts or fold some laundry while the girls were watching the movie. Alas, the whole time was spent cleaning up wrapping, frosting, ice cream, pizza crusts, nail polish and various paper goods from one room to the next! Silly Mommy, I know! But it was worth it to see the smile on my girl's face and get to know her sweet friends better. They are at such a wonderful age.

Happy Birthday to Savannah...and many more!
