Tweens are fun!

Tonight we hosted a birthday party with just a few friends for our tween daughter, Nadine. We have a family party planned this weekend, but she's a diva and thinks she deserves 2 parties ;)

The kids, just hanging out before dinner.
Pizza time! Always a hit with the teen sector!
Nadine wanted the giant cupcake, as seen on TV. Since I knew this would not be enough cake for our family party I made it for the friend event. It was super cute, fun and easy to make, and the kids loved it!
The kids singing Happy Birthday
Nadine making her wish!

We get the kids each 4 gifts. Something you want, something you need, something to wear, and something to read. It works well for us, and makes gifting so much easier and more reasonable.
Here is the "Something she wanted" a skateboard! 
"Something she needs" New socks, and she was actually happy about it. She'd been bickering about her lack of socks lately. Haha!
Something to wear" a really cute OP tank, jean skirt, and flip flops. I scored this cute outfit at Wal-Mart for $3 total. Major end of season clearance makes me super happy!
The "Something to read" was a big hit this year. In years past we've given magazine subscriptions or a new Twilight series book. This year we opted for every magazine on the stands during her birthday month with Justin Beiber on the cover. The girls were swooning over the articles on him, and his posters for hours.

It was a fun night for the girls, and when the tween daughter is happy momma is very happy!
