The Sleepover

Saturday night I had a sleepover. I invited my niece Lindsay, my neighbors 2 little girls and my friend Jill. The girls brought bags full of costumes....so did Jill. Actually, Jill brought 2 dresses that her mom made (they are awesome) and brought some hats and tiara's.....again, she is the girliest girl I know.

We started the night off with dress up hour. Then, we took pictures of the girls with my photography backdrop, they modeled beautifully! After pictures, the girls played office with all of my old work papers, old keyboards and pens.....the office was a MESS!!!! Time for cotton candy!! I start the little cotton candy machine that I got from Walmart and waited...and waited...and waited! Finally, some sugary webs formed and I was able to accumulate about 4 bites of candy in 10 minutes.....not alot of fun! I slaved on and managed to get 4 bites on 3 cones for each girl. I do believe I will be retiring the cotton candy maker to the garage. Next, it was pajama time...they all came downstairs in some sort of pink sleeping ensemble, of course! They cuddled on the couch and watched Ratatouille while I made sugar cookies and Jill and I had some grown up talk time...we decided watching 3 girls is a little tiring, how do moms do it!? Finally, it was bed time....they read books and got back scratches then it was lights out. After several times of hearing my name called I decided it was time to pull out the big guns. "If you don't go to bed, your mommy will be mad at me and you will never be able to come over again!"...it worked!

Over all, it was a fun night. I learned that kids can not be trusted to not spill milk while laying on the floor, that 3 girls will tell on each other, that 3 girls will love on each other, that the things I liked as a kid are still fun, I miss taking pictures, I will need alot of help if I have triplets, Jill will be the best mommy and....you can not sleep past 6 am (I learned this after being lightly tapped on the shoulder for a while, thought it was a dream, opened my eyes and saw 2 little eyes staring at me...it scared the crap out of me!).
