in the pink. a very rockin' par-tay...


Shaye's big day was finally here.

Brielle "worked the door"-


making sure all persons attending were in possesion of their VIP invites...







As soon as all of the guests arrived, the girls got to work creating their own I SPY bottles...




I was able to purchase a collection of the itty bitty things - enough for all 11 bottles! - for under $13 from Crackalackin.  (How fun it that Etsy shop name?!) 


 FYI: I chose to super glue the tops on, I'm guessing all of the moms were super thankful. ;)






Next, Shaye opened her gifts...





EDITED TO ADD:

Gianna wanted it noted that she styled Shaye's hair...




very cool.






and then we played a game:




a fun way to distribute party favors...




FYI: the new iPod nanos do not play music very loud
with the headphones unplugged, still more just for personal listening.



it did take a turn or two,
but once everyone caught on-
the game went very smoothly...









After that, it was time for cupcakes...













They were pretty fabulous!




Afterwards, the girls played (what else?) "Just Dance" on the Wii

and with some of Shaye 's presents.




It was a great day.




The other girls have already begun planning their (summer!)birthday parties...

Cool game. When we lived in England they played "pass the parcel"
They would wrap a "big" present and then wrap it over and over in newspaper every now and then adding a small unwrapped gift. You could add them at known intervals there by allowing each child a gift if you kept track of the layer count. A lucky child [not the birthday girl] would get the big gift.

That is a very cool birthday! I also loved seeing how cooperative the girls were to each other! Oh, and that the older sister was able to participate (always an issue between me and little sis) Thanks for sharing!
