Elizabeth really wanted a birthday party this year. Well, she really wants one every year. In our family you had a friend birthday party ever other year until you turned 12 years old. Well, Elizabeth has always had bad luck when she would have her friend party since her birthday always fell around Labor Day. So this year when she asked once again if she can have a birthday party, we decided to go ahead and let her and cross our fingers that this one will be a successful one for her. The only thing was she was in charge of the whole thing. Happy to say, she did a great job, she wanted a Japanese themed slumber party, she did all the decorations, dinner menu planning, games and even made cupcakes.
