DD Clara turned 12 last week, and she had so much fun!!!
Here's how it went down:
3:00 girls show up at our house, and we head to the shopping mall for a scavenger hunt (they had certain things to buy and certain things to find/photograph with their cell phones).
6:30 Scavenger hunt declared a huge success. Although mom had to waive the rule "you're disqualified if you get into trouble with mall security." Because both teams got in trouble with mall security. Several times. Apparently you're not supposed to run in the mall . . . we laugh on the way home remembering Paul Blart, Mall Cop.
9:00 - 10:00 After pizza at Round Table, time for makeovers and really loud music. Mom and dad hide downstairs and pledge to be "cool" and not ask them to turn it down until 10:00 p.m. We just make it.
10:00 pm - ??? Clara loves the idea of having birthday cake at 10 pm!!! Then it's presents and movies (a scary movie, a funny move and a romance).
9:00 am the next morning I guess they stayed up late, since they were still completely sacked out the next day well into mid-morning.
Oh, to be 12 and have good friends and be so full of girl power that you feel like you're going to burst! I love it!
