Number Nine

My little girl turned 9 on Janaury 29th - can you believe it? 9, that is the last number until 10. Wow. She's not so little anymore - I told her back in November if she kept her room up and was responsible until Christmas she could get a hamster. And she did! She picked out a Teddy Bear hamster and named her Buttercup, and is still acclimating to us humans. I hope she will realize soon that we are not out to hurt her.
We had a slumber party last weekend of 9 girls including Savannah, 8 stayed the night and of course they did not sleep much. I guess I was so preoccupied that I failed to get as many pictures as I wanted. The girls played hide and seek, pin the tail on the donkey, Bingo, and Start the Party. It was a lot of fun!

Savannah formed a #9 in candles on her birthday cake. As I was lighting them the girls made sure to tell me there were more than 9 candles, and then I explained to them why.

We blew up 20 balloons and filled the front room with them. They were popping on and off throughout the night and scaring us and the dog. Not sure if there was just a lot of static electricity or what but the girls also got them to stick to the ceiling.
