It was my 1st Time!


(The birthday girl is in the zebra pants)

This was my 1st slumber party this weekend...awwww ...
Ok it was actually my 9yr old daughter's first slumber party...the theme was Black/Pink/White Zebra!

Here are a few photos....
The Tablescape

Some extras...


After the dancing to some country music videos we did a really cool craft. About a year or so ago I saw this in the Family Fun magazine....I'm soooo glad I remembered it. i headed to Hobby Lobby and bought a bag full of cut up panty hose and got the girls started! They had a blast and better yet...the craft took about 30mins + woohoo

Panty Hose Jump Rope

Then it was time to cut the cake.....I had obsessed and procrastinated about making it. I have zero talent or creativity and wanted to get zebra stripes on the cake to match the party!....Luckily my friend and neighbor Tara came to my rescue!

Here is the break down of the cake...Mini Me helped spread the icing and decorate the nilla wafer heads...

First bake the cake and put a thin layer of icing on
Then cut Twinkies in half and lay them on the cake....spread a layer of icing above the Twinkies for a sheet
Add smashed marshmellows for pillows

Decorate Nilla wafers for the faces...lay them against the pillows and then add icing to the rest of the cake for a comforter

Lastly..have your friend come over and rescue you since you were too scared to attempt the Zebra print! Then thank her over and over "TARA THANK YOU"
Typical girls to smash their face in the cake...I had to have a picture! I think those will make terrific Thank You cards!
We put a DVD on and around midnight I was getting a bit drowsy! Off to bed...or so I was hoping....I could hear them chatting until about 2am this morning...needless to say I'm exhausted. My daughter woke up w/her hair matted together! I guess the girls were hoping to get toothpaste on her face while she slept, but instead it ended up in her hair! ha ha!

OHHH it was so much fun, but I have to admit I'm glad this only happens once a year! ;o)

I supervised my baby sister's slumber party one night...I woke up to peanut butter everywhere the next morning. I'm still not sure what they did with it, but it was all over them and in the carpet too! That was the last time I was left in charge :)

What you did with the table, turning it into a bed, was adorable!
