birthday party fun

Yesterday was one of our staff members' birthdays. The girls organized an evening of togetherness, game-playing, and cookie-decorating (although all I participated in was cookie-eating). Some highlights of the evening:

  • Playing Cranium Turbo with the staff gang
  • Successfully spelling "Alabama" backwards, each team member taking a turn saying a letter
  • Eating cookies shaped like hippos
  • Dancing with Kelly to the timer music
  • Not knowing who sang "Islands in the Stream"
  • Discovered that "Volvo" is Latin for "I roll"
  • Enjoying my only bit of alone time all day by crashing on the couch and watching the Tuesday Night Line-Up
