The girls arrived at 5 pm and went into Cameron's room to look through her stuff and just giggle (at least that's what it sounded like ;) After they finished that activity, they got into the pool and started having a funniest jump contest, relay races, chicken fights, and other water contests. I think they had a good time.
Then it was pizza, cake, and present time...We had no idea how many pizzas to get...we figured, it's a sleep over, they'll eat so we ordered 7 pizzas...Needless to say, I have 4 pizzas left over!! The sugar kicked in and the girls got a little crazy with the cake...the little darlings started smearing each other with icing...this was quickly stopped before things became airborne!!! The girls continued to be goofy with the gift opening...tissue paper and confetti all.over.the.place!!!
It was time for a quite activity...so they began to make party t-shirts. I set them loose with permanent fabric markers and white t-shirts...the creations were cute and the girls calmed down (a little!)
The girls then took FOREVER to decide what movie to watch; it finally took a democratic vote and the winner was: Hair Spray. A couple of the girls had seen the movie before so all of a sudden song and dance would break out in the living room. The girls decided their goal was to stay up until at least 12:13 am as this was the time Cameron was born (in all actuality, they fell asleep at 2:00...but that's another story). At 12:13, the girls proceeded to have a pillow fight and start screeching Happy Birthday. Cute, but way too loud at midnight with a baby and Daddy already sleeping. I called it a night about 12:30; there was about 15 minutes left in the movie and the girls had instructions to turn off the t.v. and get to sleep after it was over.
I was woken up at 1:15 by Cameron telling me one of the girls was upset and crying. I got up and one of the girls just wanted her Mom; she wouldn't tell me what was wrong so I told her she could call her Mom and speak with her. She tried her Mom, but there was no answer. Her Mom calls back about 10 minutes later and the girl got on the phone and left the room. She brought the phone back to me and told me that her Mom wanted to talk to me. The Mom asked me what was going on and I explained to her what I knew. She said, "I thought they wouldn't be up past midnight!" I kinda stuttered and explained how the night ended. In a tight voice, the Mom asked to speak with her daughter again; the little girl decided she did want to go home. So her Mom shows up 10 minutes later and I told her that I had told her daughter that if it was just that she wanted to be with her Mom and be in her own bed, she could come back in the morning to play until the party was over. The Mom curtly answered, "Well I think she'll be sleeping in tomorrow!" Yikes!! Okay, as a Mom, if I send my kid over to a sleep over, it's kinda expected that they will not be falling asleep at a decent hour...This same Mom called and left a curt message on my answering machine that her daughter had left a shirt and towel at our house and she would appreciate it if I could return those items to her daughter tomorrow. I wanted to call her back and say, "oh you mean the shirt that got smeared with icing after your daughter started an icing fight in my house?!" But I just ignored the message and her kid will get her stuff back tomorrow - stupid Wenchbag!
I think Cameron had a good time...at least that's what she and the pictures tell me.
