Eleven seems so big

3 Jan

So my baby girl turns 11 in two days, and to celebrate, we had a New Year’s Eve slumber party with Gracie, Vivi’s best friend from Tulsa, and her new friends here in Stillwater.

Gracie and Vivian got things started earlier in the week with a dress-up party at my mom’s while the grown-ups watched OSU win in the Alamo Bowl.

The party itself started with a pasta dinner followed by ice skating at Stillwater’s temporary holiday rink. This town, I must admit, does have some cute traditions.

However, the night of the party, it was LITERALLY 8 degrees with the wind chill. I sadly suspected this adventure would last all of a few minutes. But no. They lasted almost an hour and a half.

Here they are before:

They had a great time,


Especially these two, who’d never been skating before:

WordPress ate the rest of this post … I’ll try to re-update later.
