Claire has been asking, wait, begging for a limo for her 7th birthday since before Christmas. Being the softy parents that we are, we gave in and for her birthday party with friends had a limo. The afternoon started off with 11 (one girly got sick) girls arriving at our home for painted nails and makeup. They also made glamorous bracelets. Miss Beth and Miss Sara helped with the corralling and makeovers, much to Claire's excitement (Thanks Beth and Sara!). The white Hummer limo arrived during these makeovers. One of the little girls spotted the limo out front, unexpectedly. She yelled "The limo's here!". All the girls started screaming and ran to the front door. It was hilarious!!!! After calming the riot, the girls were outfitted in hot pink feather boas and sunglasses for their debut in Bentonville. I heard several times, "We're divas!" and "We're famous!". It was too cute! After pictures, everyone climbed in the limo and we headed to a local pizza place for pizza and cupcakes. Afterwards, we drove through the Promenade (our open-air mall) with the windows down and the girls hanging out waving! Then the drop-offs began. Each girl was dropped at their respective homes, with pictures by the parents as they got out. Claire opened presents in the limo while this happened, and they also sang and played games to pass the time. I must say, it was a HUGE success and lots of fun!
PS: Everyplace the girls went, it looked like some terrible flamingo accident had occurred!
