A Very Guillory Birthday Party

The first full weekend in September we had a full schedule of birthday parties.  Stella had parties for friends on Saturday and Sunday, and the Guillory girls were hosting a joint birthday bash and campout at their house Saturday night.  Luckily their Aunt Dara was there and so was our camera, so Damon decided to pick her brain and see if she could figure out why the majority of the pictures we take with our camera have focus problems.  Professional that she is, she found the issue in about five minutes, and then put on an absolute photography clinic while taking pictures at the party.  Since she fixed it, the camera has worked beautifully.  It really peeves me that we took it to the store where we purchased it several times and were told there was nothing wrong with the camera, that it was operator error and we needed to take a photography class.  At least it is fixed now, thanks to Dara.  Here are a few of my favorites that she took that night...
Watts loves biscuits...
John gives sleepover parties one thumb up...or maybe that was for the football game he was watching...
How crafty is this campfire cake that Kelly made?  She did a great job with all her themed party items and really made me feel like a slacker...
Birthday girl #1...
#2...
And #3...
The girls had a blast painting their own birdhouses...

This is Stella showing off her handiwork and obscuring her face in the process...

Watts was content to just play with the boxes and leave the toys for the girls...


We all slept over and had a great time.  Stella enjoyed it so much, in fact, that after we got home the next day she used the dining room chairs and a blanket to make this tent in the living room.  She planned for her and Cille to spend the night in it, but she settled for napping there alone...

Smooth out...guess she partied too hard last night...
