I am so tired. I could handle this much better 40 years ago, haha! But the girls had a great time, though they did not finally go to sleep until 1:20 a.m. AND one wanted mommy to pick her up at midnight, but she was satisfied if I would stay in the living room with all the girls for the night...so I "slept" in my rocking chair. I got up once around 3:00 a.m. to go to the bathroom, and the child who'd wanted to go home was standing outside of the bathroom door when I came out!
I have to say, I better have lost some weight, because I didn't have time to eat anything, we were busy with (doll) crafts, setting tables for meals for both girls AND dolls, doing the dance party thing (LOUD LOUD LOUD), refereeing on occasion, and fixing meals. The payoff? Hannah coming to me 6 or 7 times just to give me a hug and say "thank you, Grandma, this is the BEST American Girl party EVER!"
Here are my six little friends. They LOOK quiet, don't they?
Here are the dolls at their table. Some chose pizza like their "mommies", while others chose spaghetti. They all have icy cold drinks.
These are the breakfast and lunch food choices. We made these out of polymer clay. We have pancakes, waffles, donut, bacon and fried eggs. Then we have spaghetti, pizzas, hot dogs, sandwich, cheese squares w/toothpicks, and grapes (red and purple). (for perspective, the pancakes are quarter size, the drinks about 1.5" high).
Finally, we had beverages and desserts! (No calories, no fats). A fancy rainbow cake, variety of cookies, and pie slices: apple, blueberry, lemon meringue, chocolate cream. (There was also cherry, but my granddaughter "borrowed" it to take home). Pictured are the "icy" drinks which were a favorite (clear glue, food coloring and clear beads).
This party took weeks of planning and making the foods. I'm glad they had a good time, but it's time to get my (Spark) life back!
