The problem with summer birthdays.

We have always encouraged our identical twins to be individuals and to pursue their own interests and friends.  It has worked out quite well – until now.  I promised the girls they could have a slumber party for their 8th birthday and told them they could each invite two people.  The problem?  Both of A’s friends said “yes” but neither of K’s friends can come because they will be out of town (such is the nature of an early summer birthday party).  Now I’m not sure what to do.  Should I:

a)      Postpone both parties and try again after school starts in a couple of weeks?

b)      Have A’s party as scheduled and have K’s party at another time?

c)      Cancel both parties and take just the two of them out for an extra special event?

d)      Go with some other option?
