|My sweet babies are 14!|
Kiley and August turned 14-years-old last week. This past weekend we celebrated with some of their friends, and friend's mom's at a Japanese Teppanyaki restaurant, followed by a sleepover at our house. The dinner was a blast. Many of the girls had never experienced the teppanyaki-grill entertainment before. The food was absolutely delicious.
My husband and two little girls got out of dodge for the evening and packed up to go to Oma and Opa's.
The sleep-over was very low-key to my amazement. All of the friends' mom's were invited to sleepover, but only one decided to party with us. The girls made a craft, got their sleeping mask party favors, sang Happy Birthday, and played some Apples to Apples. A few of their friends even got to have their hair done by a professional hair stylist (my mom).
Around 2:00am, I walked around the entire house to check on the girls and found 3 already asleep. This is unheard of for any sleep-over I had ever been to. August and a friend were in her room knitting scarves and the other two girls were in the kitchen having a conversation with the other mom. I sat on the couch and fell asleep.
I awoke in the morning to a clean kitchen (what fantastic girls), and 8 sleeping girls.

|Their craft was making dry-erase memo boards from picture frames with pretty|
scrapbook paper inside. I found mini dry-erase markers and magnetic mini erasers.
