Last night was Kayci's friend party. We decided not to have a huge friend party like we did last year - it was just too overwhelming. Kayci invited a few friends over for a Pop Star Slumber Party.
There was pizza and games and plenty of Hannah Montana. In fact, the whole idea started out very simply as just a do-it-yourself pop star party, but somehow morphed into a very Hannah Montana affair. But that's okay. The girls loved every minute of it.
One of the major events of the evening was the making of a music video. Kayci picked "The Climb" by Hannah Montana to make the video to. Originally, it was supposed to be "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun," but that changed at the last minute, also. But the girls had a great time singing and dancing while making the video. There was even a fog machine...
Here's the result of the video shoot (click on the video to play it):
The girls painted their nails and generally had a great time. And to my surprise, no one went home. I just knew that at least one of the girls would melt down in the middle of the night and I'd have to drive them home. But they all did just fine.
The girls all slept in the living room - most of them on a big air mattress and a couple in sleeping bags on the floor. In the morning they played and had a cereal buffet for breakfast.
And one of the best parts is that Noble made himself a part of all the fun. He was right in the middle of everything being a big kid and doing a lot of flirting with the big girls. As one of the girls' fathers said, he's going to love it when Kayci is a teenager and has a constant stream of teenager girlfriends over.
I'd say things went better than we expected and that everyone - including Kristi and I - had a great time! But most importantly, Kayci is really excited about turning six and feels like a rock star starting out her year.
