Kamryn has turned 9!

We celebrated Kamryn's 9th birthday this weekend with a costume party at our home. It was fun to come up with a simple, but enjoyable party for several 9 year old girls. Each girl came dressed up. We had everything from a S.W.A.T team member, to a bunny. Chris even got in on it (at my urging!) and was Venom from Spiderman and I found a Spartan cheerleader uniform. We had a lot of fun!

We started out with a scavenger hunt around our community. I took about 15 pictures of objects along our main path that they had to identify. This was a lot more fun (and a lot more difficult) than I had anticipated. It kept the girls busy and was a real highlight for some of them. Silly-bands were the grand prize!

Then we headed in for mask-making. We had each girl decorate her own mask with various stickers, jewels, feathers and glitter glue. They really got into it!

Next up, cake and presents! Kamryn was so thrilled with all her gifts and then we devoured the "mask" cake that my mom so graciously made for Kam. Yummy!

I can't believe my little girl is 9! I mean, I can remember MY 9th birthday. Am I old enough to have a 9 year old (yes, I am, but REALLY?). I'm so proud of her!

It was a great party, and probably one of our funnest at our home. We had simple an inexpensive decorations and made the activity and craft the main event. Lots of fun!
