T is her own woman. She is very independent. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to do something that others might not do. Most of her friends have parties at places, but that is NOT what T wanted. We were fine with that as home is a much cheaper option haha. Once she decided she wanted the party at home, I got on pinterest and found many fun games for us to play. She was interested in NONE of them! She already had a plan. She knew what she wanted to have happen. She wanted a free flowing afternoon of fun with lots of time in her room. I tried hard to go along with it, but also had an activity back up plan! The party was scheduled from 2-4pm. I was nervous about how I would fill the time if her great ideas bombed. Thankfully, the party was a success. She has the sweetest friends. They gave her thoughtful gifts and she loved them all. They were all eager to play along with her unique ideas. In many ways the party was easier than an afternoon at home with just M and T! Here are the highlights from the afternoon!
We decided to set up two tables. We had a cake table and a craft table. This actually ended up working great!

|They all enjoyed coloring.|
|M's Basketball game was a hit and everyone tried it!|
|It is just the right size for them!|
After the crafts T wanted to have the kids slide down the stairs. I thought this was a crazy idea, but again she proved me wrong. Every kid was laughing like crazy and doing it over and over again!
After sliding down the stairs T wanted everyone to spend time in her room doing their nails and hair and make up etc. L and M were not excited about this option. They stayed downstairs and played an animal charades game I created and ate a bonus cupcake snack!

|T: I LOVED LOVED LOVED having these girls in my room!!! I even changed my clothes!|
|L: It was hard for them to guess I was a cow!|
|I can't believe she is SIX!!!|
|T: Everyone was looking at me!|
|T: My friends loved the cake!!!|
|T: I loved being the star!|
|T: I am so thankful for my friends!|
|They all were trying to get it!|
|These two were not as into the ball game and preferred to look at the cards.|
