RockStar Slumber Party

This past Friday I hosted a "RockStar" Slumber party at my house for 10 eight year old girls! These are my Sunday school girls that I've had since they were in 1st grade. Last year we started a slumber party tradition and we had a princess slumber party and it was a hit. To celebrate the end of 3rd grade, we had another slumber party but this time it was the Rockstar theme. I gotta say, this may have been the BEST "themed" party I have ever thrown. I gotta a little out of hand with the idea. When you need 8 adult helpers to help- then you probably went a little overboard but it was such a AWESOME ROCKIN' time!

I took Friday off so that we could transfer our garage into a "Rockstar transformation center" with 6 "Diva Stations". We had Tattoos, Accessories, Make-up, Craft, Nails & Hair. Plus a disco ball!

Each girl transformed from a normal person to a Rockstar in about 2 hours!

The girls had a ton of fun. It was a free show for our neighbors- they watched from their first porch and even came over to check it out. One of our neighbors, Tom (whom we love) even showed up later in the night when the girls started playing Rockband. Last year's most popular song was "Eye of the Tiger" so we had a real life Rock Tiger surprise us at the door when the girls started playing that song. (oh yea, we go ALL out here at the Craig household).

My new fabulous friend, Melanie, was the photographer for the evening. I take no credit for all these pictures. There was NO way I could do hair, manage the party and take pictures. She got some AWESOME shots! Cannot thank Mel enough for capturing all this fun.

These were ALL our fabulous helpers for the night- Nicole, Laura,Heidi,Kelly, Kaleena, Kirk & Melanie. Each of these ladies gave up their Friday night in order to help me and I cannot say THANK YOU ENOUGH. There is absolutely NO way I could have done it without their help.

My biggest helper was this man.

A GOOD man would agree to have 10 eight year olds at our house and then make plans with a dude for the evening & peace out. A GREAT man would help me for 3 hours with 10ft purple signs and transform our garage into a Rockstar Transformation Center. But a GODLY man- a Godly man understands how important it is to pour into kids at a young age and teach them that God loves them. A Godly man sticks around with 10 eight year olds, 9 women, participates in the party and even lets the girls paint all over his face.

A Godly man or a man who really is just a 8 year old himself deep down. I'm pretty sure my husband is both!

Thanks everybody for helping me make this year's party such a HUGE success!

And if that wasn't enough excitement for 1 weekend- we also had a baptism. Kaley got baptized this morning at church!
