Since we don't do parties every year and 13 is a big deal, Alyssa had an all night birthday bash. She really did a lot of the work, including turning the play room into a teen sleeping area. My toughest job was feeding them all and washing the six loads of towels that 15 girls used for three rounds of swimming and showering. Honestly, I didn't even realize that we owned that many towels!
I wish I had taken a good picture of the decorating - Alyssa, Moriah, and their friend, Emily, did an awesome job.
I didn't pull out my camera until this morning, however, when these two sweet girls were reading to my little guys.
I then got brave and headed down the stairs with my camera. Yeah, it was a mess and it extended far beyond just this room.
Look at the girls on the couch - I thought only puppies, or piglets, could sleep like that!
The party ended at 11:00 a.m. and Moriah was sound asleep on the living room couch around 9:00. She didn't move while the girls said good-bye and slept until after 2:00 this afternoon.
