Happy Birthday Gillian and Clare!

Clare and Gilly turned 9 on Sunday. More than anything else, Clare wanted a sleepover birthday party. More than anything else, Gillian did NOT want a houseful of screechy little girls disturbing her sleep, so when the respite care had a cancellation on Saturday...a sleepover was born!

Three of Clare's "bestest" friends (and one for Ellery) enjoying pizza, cake and a nauseating assortment of BBQ/Nacho cheese flavor fried snax.

This was the cake...a horrifying "Cotton Candy" ice cream cake provided by Dairy Queen. The purple layer was crunchy...just like granulated sugar! yum...

I mistakenly thought that the term "Sleepover" suggested that at some point during the night the invitees would sleep. I was wrong. Despite the fact that they appear to be lounging in makeshift beds late at night...sleep was HOURS away from coming.

One of Clare's guests brought a party favour...

N was dogsitting Stella (as a pre-requisite to future dog ownership herself) and was tickled when I suggested that instead of choosing between the party and the dog-sitting that she combine the two activities. Look at that little face! Stella is a not-quite one year old Wheaton Terrier and is cute as a button. Haley was definitely feeling displaced!

So, waffles with fruit and whipped cream for breakfast...and we were done for another year!
