Amanda's 7th Birthday Party

Amanda is so camera shy!

Hey hey...the gang's all here

I'm not sure why my daughter is the one with the fewest clothes on

Movie time

Everyone say "Good Morning"!

So this was Amanda's 7th birthday party. There are some things Daddy is good at and some things Mommy is good at. We found out last night that Mommy is the Birthday Party Queen and Daddy is the Birthday Party Wimp!

Brooke asked Amanda what three friends she would like to have over for a spend the night party for her birthday...actually, let me backtrack. Brooke asked Amanda who ALL she would like to have over for a spend the night birthday party and I (wisely) suggested the number "3". Anyway, Amanda chose her friends and they came over for a girls night at the Hurts. It didn't take long for me to figure out I did not have the nerve for four screaming, giggling girls spending the night. Brooke's friend Meagan came over for a while, so I headed over to their house and spent time with my friend (Meagan's husband), Daniel. Brooke, Meagan and the girls did their girl thing here (movies, dress up, make up, hair do's, etc) while Daniel and I watched Hotel Rwanda.

When I came home around 11:30pm, two of the girls were asleep in the living room while Amanda and one other were trying to see who could stay awake the longest. Brooke spent most of the night sleeping on the couch to keep an eye on the girls (who finally went to sleep) while the doggies and I got the bed.

Brooke came to bed a couple hours before the girls got up. They had cinnamon rolls for breakfast, played a little more and then their parents came. Amanda told Brooke it was the best party ever...Mommy is Birthday Party Queen.
