Claire had her first sleepover friend a few Friday nights ago. It was our niece Evie. I felt pretty confident that it would go well ... and it did.
Will picked Evie up on his way home from work and brought her to our house. We made Smores cookies and I even let these two girls crack the eggs. Can you tell they were excited about the eggs?
We ate dinner at our favorite chicken finger place and then the girls came home and watched a Barbie movie. I thought we had decided on watching "Tangled" but Evie saw the Barbie movie and wanted to watch that instead since she had not seen it before. The funniest line of the night was when Evie was starting to get a little scared at one part of the movie, and I heard Claire say something like "you're the one who picked this movie." Oh girls! There was lots of popcorn, milk and smores cookies with the movie.
After the movie, it was time for a mani/pedi. I painted 20 fingernails and 20 toenails 40 different colors. (Not really, but every nail was a different color on each hand/foot.)
Evie slept on Claire's trundle bed in Claire & David's room. The kids had fun jumping on the trundle.
Time for bed! Finally! Mommy was pooped!
We were worried we might have a middle of the night drive home, but once we got everyone to sleep, we didn't hear a peep out of them until 8AM the next morning.
After a breakfast of Claire's favorite chocolate chip pancakes, we headed out to take Evie home.
Overall, I think the first sleepover went really well. I'll have to rest up for the next one!
