We are still recovering from Sarah's Friday night slumber 8th birthday party.
This was her first ever sleep over at our place and it all went well except for not much sleep. Yawn!
We chose Friday night as I thought maybe, just maybe, they might be tired after a week of school as well as her friends could be there in the morning for her birthday on the Saturday.
We ate and played games in the park, then on dusk went home for cake, then snuggled in the lounge for a movie, before bed.
I also invited one of Ava's friends, so that she wouldn't be left out. I must say the girls all played well together and were a dream to look after. Yes, we had lots of giggles, screaming and chatter and finally around 11.30pm all was silent, only to be awoken at 6am for it all to start again.
We let out a sigh of relief when pick up came at 10am. I had heard later that most of the girls had naps later in the morning, however my poor tired Ava had to go to another party later that day. Sleep glorious sleep, couldn't come soon enough, even on Sunday we still felt tired, however that didn't stop me hunting for goodies at some local garage sales and markets, more on that another time.
We were thankful it was successful and it's over for now till Ava's birthday in a few weeks. AAHHH!!!
