C. doesn't turn twelve until the end of the month, but with construction potentially starting this week, we squeezed in her party this weekend.
The local High School will be performing "Grease--the Musical" the next two weekends, and C is not only a musical fan, but a HUGE "Grease" fan (she takes after her mom). So we did a Grease Party.
G hung decorations in the living room:
And we turned C's recently-emptied bedroom into a "diner":
The girls arrived:
They feasted on burgers (including veggie burgers), fries, onion rings, shakes, root beer floats, and cherry cokes.
Then they watched the first half of the movie Grease:
Then we did cake:
(you see here the evidence that C. has SEVEN boyfriends!)
C opened presents. Here's the group hug thank-you:
Then they watched the end of the movie:and did some sock-hoppin' upstairs.
I think it was a great success and it was wonderful to have eleven girls all dressed up in 50's attire!
