My 13th B-Day


Sunday – October 5th 2014

I have been experiencing mixed feelings about my upcoming b-day: I am sad that my childhood is drawing to a close, excited to become a teenager, scared what the future holds, etc. On Friday I am having a party, my first party for that matter. I’ve grown up celebrating birthdays with my family and having cake with the neighbors, so this will be a new experience for me. All in all I am excited to see what this week will bring.

Monday – October 6th 2014

After co-op Mom and I went shopping for birthday supplies at Target. We knocked out a lot of items, including items for the gift bags, dinner, and spa. I am thrilled by how cute the gift bags turned out. I can’t wait to give them to my guests!

I did some homework today, but it was not torture since my reward shall be a party at the end of the week. (!)

Thursday – October 9th 2014

I did lots of school and went shopping with Mom to get Ankle Boots and exchanged the checkered tights and Tom’s flats. We ended getting more than we planned.

Friday – October 10th 2014

  • I slept in, wrote a paper for IEW, and then cleaned for my party.
  • Julia and Ellie arrived early so we stayed in my room and watched trailers that I made in iMovie.
  • As the other guests arrived we went outside and played 4 Square.
  • When the bugs became annoying we went in and talked for about 20 minutes.
  • We began the craft, which was a sketch book, journal, whatever.
  • Dinner arrived 30 minutes late, thanks to traffic. Just as we were finishing Hannah arrived.



  • We did the craft and spent a little bit too much time on it, which caused us to start the spa late.
  • We did the spa, which was lots of fun. Washing her face mask off, Ellie created the funniest moment of the night when she fell into the bathtub.




  • After the spa we played the Newly Buds Game (the kid version of the Newlywed Game, FYI) Hannah was picked up during the game and Priscilla soon after.


  • Julia, Abby, Ellie, and I changed into our PJs and then tried to get to sleep (we really did, Dad).


  • We stayed up ’til about 3:00 a.m. singing Frozen songs.
  • Everyone but I was asleep by 5:00 a.m.

Saturday – October 11th 

  • We woke at about 8:00 a.m.
  • Mom made us a delicious Crepe breakfast.
  • We played Truth or Dare Balloon Bop (very fun, highly recommend).

Dare – Apply Lipstick to another player without using your hands

  • We walked down to the creek.
  • Abby was picked up.
  • Julia, Ellie, and I had lunch.
  • Julia was picked up.
  • Ellie and I hung out until her parents came and about 2:00 and left at about 3:00.

Thanks again, to my guests, for all the thoughtful gifts. Here is a list of them below:

  1. $25 Kohl’s Gift Card and Change Purse (From Hannah)
  2. A Scrapbook, Scrapbook Paper, Scrapbook Stickers, Decretive Tape, Sticky Notes, and Pandora Bracelet (From Priscilla)
  3. $15 Target Gift Card (From Abby)
  4. A Sketchbook and Markers (From Julia)
  5. 2 Cross Stitch Projects and a pack of 24 Embroidery Threads

I had a blast and hope my parents will allow me to have another party next year.
