We spent the night at a friends house on Jamie's cousin, McKalah's Birthday, October 2nd. We brought both McKalah and Dynisha along. McKalah was so excited. We got there pretty late, but the kids were happy just to have a sleepover.
McKalah's mom called to wish her Happy Birthday at the hour of her birth, 10:23pm. It took forever to get the kids settled down and to sleep. It was after midnight when the last one, McKalah, finally drifted off to dream land. It's tough to get five wound up kids to sleep.
The next day for dinner we set up a bit of a party with leftover party supplies from previous birthday parties my friend had for her daughter. We had matching plates, napkins, blowers, and cups, but we had to use Dora party hats. The kids loved them anyway.
I was surprised that Jamie was willing to wear a hat. He usually won't tolerate them for even a moment. Even Dynisha wanted one.
Decorating the cupcakes was even more fun than eating the. Each child was allowed two cupcakes. Jamie didn't want to ice his. He prefers his cupcakes plain. The other kids delighted in decorating their cupcakes but McKalah and another child only managed to eat one. Dynisha was so full she took hers home with her.
