Sunday Recap

A few months ago, Bug and I brainstormed a fun idea to have several of her and PB's friends over for a spa night. After trying to schedule this for two months, last Friday was finally determined to be it. Each girl was allowed to invite five friends, and they could have tem spend the night and get picked up in the early am, or picked up late that night. We had 4 of Bug's friends and 3 of PB's friends come, with all of PB's and 2 of Bug's friends spending the night.

The night began with some general hanging out while I started preparing the pizza crusts. Each girl made their own pizza, and once they were all ready, all 9 girls and the Monster sat down to eat. The talk was fast and furious, and while they all sat in their own age group, they did talk together. After that, I had them go and chill while I finished setting everything up. The wicker chairs went into the kitchen, to act as the pedicure station. The table was covered and one end was the manicure spot and the other was the facial. Since I had preteens, I didn't want to use any chemicals on them, so we just did yogurt facials. The big girls helped the little girls paint their nails, and there was a lot of laughing and chattering. I had the girls draw numbers and then they took turns sitting in the kitchen soaking their feet in the foot massager. After their time was up, I would paint their toenails. Headbands, hair ties, little pedicure sets, hand towels...we had a little of everything for them. Epson salts in the foot bath, and baby oil in the hand bath... soft skin for these girlies. At 10 the spa shut down, and each set of girls retired to their area of the house to watch a movie. At midnight, the lights were out.

All in all, I think everyone had a really great time. Monster even took part and he loved having all the girls to fawn over him. Here's a few photos from the night.

I am just glad I was NOT home for this event. I am just sorry I was not there to save the boy from it!
