It’s been a while since I posted a Mazie Monday. Seems right to do one about her big tenth birthday party!
So let’s begin, well, at the beginning. Her banner was hung…and the cake was finished (more on the cake on the business site)Jacob and I surprised Mazie at school by showing up for lunch. There were birthday calls and texts and lots of birthday presents sent from all over. After school, we ordered pizza and waited for friends to arrive for our first slumber party! We had time to get a photo of the birthday girl on her birth minute…When all the girls arrived, we popped in Megamind and had pizza and chatted (mostly chatted!)…There was a lot of chatting the whole night. Loud chatting! Who knew, ten 10-12-year old girls could sound like 100? I have to take a second here to say that Jacob was in heaven. He was the only single boy here and loved the attention from all the girls telling him how cute he was. The girls were awesome about including him and Jamie in the fun. I can’t be sure who was more excited about having a sleepover, Jacob or Mazie!
and watched patiently as Mazie opened her gifts. Pop Pop even skyped from Pennsylvania to watch Mazie!After a lot more playing and another movie, it was time for bed. I’m pretty sure it was close to 2am when the girls finally were quiet. It was a pretty long night! But they were awake early nonetheless and went right into playing again. After the requested doughnuts for breakfast, the girls and Jacob had fun decorating their own cupcakes. I think they did a pretty good job…All the girls had left by noon and Jeremiah and I raced to bed to recuperate. Just kidding, our kids were still here! 😉 It was a good thing Jeremiah took off on Friday because he didn’t get much sleep either since he and Jacob had a little boys night in Jacob’s room. Overall, the girls were well-behaved and enjoyed themselves. However, I’m glad the next sleepover isn’t for another two years!
On Saturday, Jeremiah and Mazie went on their annual date.Mazie’s choice of restaurants was Zio’s and she had such a good time. She wanted to dress up and asked if I would curl her hair. I obliged without overly jumping up and down like a crazy woman! It took about 30 minutes to do her hair and when we were done she was happy and even let me do a little 10-year-old photo shoot.
We survived the first 10 years. It’s still hard to believe she’s ten. As much as I’m dreading her getting even older, I can’t wait to see what the next few years bring. I’m sure it’s going to be crazy and wonderful, just like the first 10!
