Yes, I got into the sleepover madness for two weekends in a row….. Firstly for Pearls birthday and then the following weekend to Ruby’s book club girls. I must say that all the girls that came over were lovely and all had great attitudes! Mine was not so good at 11:45pm when it was time for the girls to play (scream) hide and seek. But the girls had fun and hopefully this coming weekend we can just stay in our jammies till mid-morning on Saturday and be our old grumpy selves for a while.
We actually started the Birthday midweek with a family celebration. Then at the the weekend it was time for friends to join in!
And so Pearl wanted to go to "Build a Bear" and so when it is your birthday you get to do what you want, within reason.
We picked bears and gave them hearts and a bath. Filled them with love and stuffing and then back home to continue the marathon of activities and games. Jade had a great time hanging out with friends and sisters.And Ruby was a great big sister, helping to move along the party and include all of the guests.
I love seeing my girls around other kids, how they act how they resolve things and especially how they laugh and giggle. Seeing that they pick friends who have a moral compass makes me feel very proud.
Not to say that we don't have are moments of sassy and making the wrong choices because we do. But hopefully we are always trying to learn from mistakes..... I try but sometime I just keep making the same ones over and over.
Pearl was Princess for the day!
And Ruby loaded up the water balloons for fun and games outside.
We even tried our hands at homemade pizza.
All in all, we had a great time. I survived and will be ready for next year. Way to go sleepovers.
