It is now 11:45 and they are still awake. Calm. Watching a movie...but still awake. I keep asking if they are tired and only just now did Grace say, "A little bit". Seriously? They ran around inside, outside, upstairs, downstairs, in the basement, on the deck....and they are NOT tired??? Oh, to be nine...
Before the girls arrived, Grace humored me with a few photos.
The girls arrived within a few minutes of each other and it didn't take long for them to get WILD. I thought there was a herd of elephants in Grace's room.

I think they were dancing and doing cartwheels! They calmed down long enough to eat hamburgers and hot dogs.

They loved making S'mores. Kyle got them all set up and they loved making their own. It was about this point that I started to think some of them were going to have tummy aches later.
The craft was a candle holder made with glue and glitter. We used red, white, and blue for Memorial Day coming up next week.
The "Minute to Win It" games were a hit! They wanted to play them over and over so we used a point system and everyone got a prize in the end. This one was called "Defy Gravity". Each girl had to keep two balloons in the air. Their strategies were very interesting to watch.
It seemed like a fun party. I will have to see tomorrow what my almost-9-year old has to say about it. Hopefully, she felt like we celebrated her life! We love you, Grace. And, we are so happy you were born!
