I had a horror movie night and watched "Shaun of the Dead" scary stuff. We had a major feast and then had a slumber with mocktails. I invited 4 to 5 people, one didn't stay the night.

So much fun

We rented out a gym in our park district, and we did many sports such as, scooter racing, volleyball, running race, and much more.

Just at home!

Well, I got a laptop early for my birthday (I got it early cuz it was on a really good sale) so I just am going to have my 13th at my house! We have a great bakery called Icing Fever downtown, so I am going to get a cake that is rainbow inside from there, have 6 friends over, set up in my backyard and put out tons of snacks, hopefully if it's warm get tubs of ice cream and have an ice cream fight with the hose (to spray it off) in our bathing suits, I will have my camera set up and have a mini photo shoot, then we are thinking of buying tshirts from GT and some paint and putting our handprints all over them then rent a movie of netflix and they can sleepover ! :)

Best Birthday EVER!!!

We rented out this old train station room from 6:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m and we had a glow stick party. We had a whole bunch of black lights and we had a DJ and it was a blast!
