Hailey's 7th Birthday!

Wow, it's been a month, and as I was writing that title I was thinking, "I can't believe I have a seven year old!" I guess it still hasn't set in.
Hailey's birthday fell on the last day of school for the second year in a row, and we decided to have another slumber party. When the kids all got here, they played outside for a little while and had lots of fun.
Then we had pizza and I gave them each a water bottle so they had something to drink from all night long. The girls who came to her party were Brooklyn, Kate, Hailey, Afton, Alexis and Katie. Hailey's other good friend Maddie couldn't make it because she went to England for a month!
Hailey wanted cupcakes with pink flowers for her cake, so that was easy enough. We also took some to her class that morning, and she told me that some of the boys didn't want flowers, so we also made some "H" ones. The boys just had to deal with pink frosting.
It took her about seven breaths to blow out the candles, and she even had a little breeze to help her out!
Then we opened up presents. She got lots of fun things from her friends like a purse, a diary, a jewelry making kit, makeup, and water balloons! She also got a new watch and a couple other presents from us.
After presents we played freeze dance which was a big hit with these girls!
Can you tell Alexis loves to be the center of attention? These girls are all so cute and funny!
After dancing we of course had to do makeup and nail polish!
Here are the girls all dolled up and getting ready to watch Tinkerbell. They all did awesome, we put the movie on at about 9 and when it was over most of them were still not asleep so we watched underdog and that did the trick!
In the morning we had doughnuts and they played until everyone's parents came to pick them up. It was a really fun and memorable night for Hailey!

The kids were really cute and they seemed really enjoyed the party. Little girls really love to play dance freeze, and they love watching kids movies.
