Girly Fun!

Fingers, toes, face and hair
bring a brush and comfortable wear
You can relax and soak your toes
chat with friends and eat Rolos!

Julia's 10th birthday we will celebrate
it starts at two so don't be late
Come on January 24th
where we will proceed henceforth!

This was Julia's birthday invitation message. One of the best party's I've ever thrown. Thanks to a friend on Facebook for providing the idea, we had a Spa day for Julia and her 6 girlfriends.

These were my helpers for the afternoon and we couldn't have pulled off facials, pedicures and hair-do's for all without them!

Hope and Grace are sisters. They are friends with Olivia from our church. I'm not sure who had more fun, Julia and her friends or my helpers and I!

A few of the guests, Harmony, Makayla, and Alia waiting for the party to begin. Actually they were being entertained by the dancing in the picture below!

No one really needs to entertain 10 year old girls. They are the perfect party guests because you don't have to worry about a lull in conversation or providing activities for every moment they are there. They'll come up with their own! We had some beautiful classical music playing and so it was just natural to start dancing, right!

So the party progressed with facials . . .

Hair-do's. . .

Soaking feet and sipping smoothies together.

Julia had to go first since she was the birthday girl. They were all a little apprehensive about the facial part and putting cucumbers on their eyes. Julia just giggled and everyone laughed with her. At one point she said, "Do I look good with green eyes?" Ha Ha!

Doesn't she look relaxed!

These pictures still make me laugh!

Ahhhh . . . Don't you want to make an appointment at the Lodi Spa?

Makayla would not sit back and relax. First of all she was too short to reach the bucket of suds and her cucumbers kept falling off. She wasn't my best client but was a good sport anyway. She talked the whole time and really cracked me up!

The snack table makes me hungry!

Notice Julia's and Lauren's hair-do's. Very nice!

Gift time!
Julia has been waiting to take ballet lessons for a few months now. For her gift this year, I registered her for lessons. One of her friends gave her a necklace with a ballerina slipper charm and some pretty hair scarves.

Beautiful, pampered feet!

All of Julia's girlfriends together. They all got along wonderfully even though some had never met.
I couldn't have wished for a better party with a more pleasant group of girls. I love this age with all their excitement and happiness. Parties for 10 year olds are much more enjoyable than parties for 2 yr olds!

Happy Birthday Julia! We love you!
