Late-Overs', Birthdays' and Pizza

We celebrated a wonderful birthday for Drama Queen - she turned 11. She is growing up so fast but tells me all the time that she is the smallest kid in her class. She is very petite and I tell her that she will love that she is so dainty but I can tell that right now she wants to be a big girl and have buttons. That is fodder for another blog. At school they have the birthday lunch table and what would that be without lunch from somewhere other than school with your friends.Sweet-boy won a free pizza for reading so much, so he took Dad for pizza and some guy time.
Drama Queen got to have a late over.
She invited Miss M to come and hang out for the night. They got pizza, watched silly movies, I even laughed at the one Miss M brought and then what would a night be without sliding down the basement stairs on the mattress.
All I heard all evening was silence and then loud cackling. It was fun and something that Drama Queen wants to do every Friday night.
Ah, the silliness of girls........

Ah, eleven. I remember that age. I don't think there is one picture of me smiling that whole year. Hormones...

Those pictures are great! I love hearing the giggles of girls. Until you're still hearing them at 3 in the morning. Then, not so much.

Ah, the simple joys of girlhood. Makes me want to go back just for a little bit. Instead I guess I'll go to lunch with some girlfriends. Funny how we never grow out of it, huh?

I didn't know she and I shared our b-day's so close together. Happy Birthday to her! And I want to jump in the screen and eat those pizzas. I LOVE personal pan pizzas!

Loved those pictures! My own girl was 11 just yesterday; this December she turned 15! Where does the time go?

I love how you capture your family's moments so well. Your kids will love going back and looking through these chapters of their lives.

What a cute room she has too, love the paint color!

I especially likeLATE overs rather than SlEEP overs. That way I can still walk around the next morning in my skivies. haha

Rhondalue- I too love her room color, everytime I come out I am hungry for a lime popsicle, but it matches her bedspread and like I tell everyone, it is a can of paint,easy to change.♥

Sounds like fun grade school memories. Glad Sweet boy got some father-son time over pizza, what could be better?
I think it's great that you let your kids slide down the stairs, I remember doing that as a kid and absolutely loving it!
