first sleepover!

Our friends the Snellings are visitng this weekend and we've had a blast despite the chaos of 5 children. Jack and Libby both hit a milestone this weekend...their first sleepover! Jack was excited to share his room with Libby and they both slept on the floor in sleeping bags. Like any good sleepover, there was not much sleeping going on! Both children are extreme talkers and a little on the bossy side (oldest child syndrome, you know) so they took turns coming to tattle on the other. After about an hour and a half they finally fell asleep and we were able to get this really cute picture. Libby, being the Florida girl she is, is wearing some of Jack's winter jammies over her own measly excuse for jammies.


About halfway through the night, Jack got up to potty and when I walked him back into his room, he crawled into his bed. After a second, he sat up and said, "What am I doing up here?" and got back down in his sleeping bag. As I was getting him settled, I looked around for Libby, as her sleeping bag was empty, and noticed her curled up in a ball smack in the middle of the floor! It wasn't over then, at 5:30 Libby got up to look for her mommy and Alex found her halfway down the stairs! In her half-asleep state, she was terrified by Alex and her mommy quickly came running at her screams!

Poor Libby? More like poor Mommy! Libby got to sleep in a really cool princess sleeping bag and I got to sleep with Emma Jane!
