She invited street friends, school friends, and old neighborhood friends. We had pizza for dinner, played Minute to Win It games, played night games, and made s'mores in the fire pit.
She was happy.
I was exhausted. (Shhh. Don't tell her.) (Well, I guess she knows, since I told her the next day how totally exhausted I was. And maybe I told her the day after that, too.)
I'm so glad she has such nice, fun, sweet friends, and I'm glad that I was able to make up her disappointing tenth birthday (a week before our move...let's just say the promised party never materialized.)
