It was a super busy around my house this weekend. My daughter Claire turned nine yesterday!!! She had 8 of her friends over for her party and she had a great time. I will give you a great idea if you are hosting a bunch of 8/9 year olds. Just let them play with your old makeup, eye shadow, lip liner, lip gloss, blush, etc… and that will be half the party.
I planned for part of the party to have them decorate cupcakes, but they didn’t turn out. My mistake? I used a mix from a box, and I didn’t have oil, so I used butter instead and they were too moist and completely fell apart! So, on to plan B, I made giant chocolate chip cookies and they decorated those.
I had frosting, Mike and Ike’s, lots of sprinkles, etc… The girls pretended to have a cooking contest with that.
But, the highlight of the weekend for me? Claire got her ears pierced! We went to Claire’s boutique. I was nervous, I wasn’t sure how she was going to react, but she did awesome! She didn’t even flinch!
Here she is ready to go!
One side done!
She really listened great to the after care instructions too!
I was so proud of her!
I hope you had a great weekend, what was your highlight? I’ll get back to posting a new recipe tomorrow,
