It's # 13 for Emily!

Today Emily spent most of her day studying even though it was her 13th birthday, but it was yesterday afternoon at a very unusual "cocktail party" that the fun began...

The magic hour was 5:30, after all guests had arrived, that everyone took on the personality of the assigned character given to them in a special birthday invitation.  There was a preppy cheerleader who was always trying to cheer everybody on and jack them up with excitement, the queen of an unknown country that thought everyone was her subject, a crazy homeless lady who conveniently introduced a pillow as her baby, a French girl who spoke very little English and was an emotional wreck, somebody with a food obsession and a beauty queen has been; just to name a few.  Our birthday guest of honor was a gracious southern belle who talked of little but her dear, darling kittens.

Guests were greeted by the butlers (Daddy, Tom and brother, William), taken to the ballroom and served endless glasses of Shirley Temples.  Everyone got to know each other and then was escorted to a lovely sit down spaghetti dinner (still in character). 

After dinner everyone had to guess each person’s character and idiosyncrasies.  Prizes were given for the best portrayal, best costume and many other bests.  Dessert was served (Emily's favorite...PIE!), then a movie, ending with snacks and a sleepover.

A big shout out to party planners-coordinators; Mom and Dad who worked hard and did a terrific job!

What a special, fun way to mark #13!   HAPPY BIRTHDAY MISS EMILY!!!

You are most welcome Miss Em. Thank you for always including me whenever you have a special event in your life and for thinking that I will make it better by being there. You always make me feel so special.

It was quite the party. So much fun to see all those girls stay completely in character for the better part of two hours--through a cocktail party and dinner. Emily was a lovely Southern Belle and took the prize for best overall portrayal. A 13th to remember. Thanks, Mimi, for your part and your recap! Happy 13, Em!

It is likely to help the organizers set up an event for a low or no start up cost. When my Sheik in Istanbul told me to teach, he said the one most important thing that I must do to be a good teacher is to always admit when I do not know the answer. You can use such designs for bridal showers, anniversary parties, dinner rehearsals, etc. [URL= ]idolater[/URL] Many love diet programs like this because they allow the individual to eat what ever he/she wants to eat as long as they do not go over their daily points requirement. It will squeeze out any excess water, leaving you with a perfectly shaped log.
