Paige turned 11 this year. Wow! Time has flown.
In our house turning 11 means a birthday party with friends. Paige invited a really nice group of kids from school, church and the neighborhood. It was a loud and happy crowd!
Paige wanted party games and we found some fun ones...
Don't Eat Pete
Lots of screaming and candy eating involved in this game. Perfect for 11 yr. olds.
Complete My Story
One person writes a line in a story. The paper gets passed onto someone else. The next person illustrates that line. It gets passed onto someone else. The next person then writes a line in a story for the illustration (without seeing the original story line). It continues that way until you fill up the paper. Kind of like telephone, but on paper.
Who knew pulling tissues out of the box as fast as you can could be so fun?
And finally, opening gifts. Paige had a great birthday and it was fun to have a house full of running, screaming, laughing, happy 11 year olds (for a few hours anyway).
