First Sleepover

Last Friday, Ella had her first sleepover at her house. She has slept over at the grandparents house many time, but we have never had anyone sleep over at our house before.

We kept my nephews, Jack and Everett so that my sister in law and her husband could go to the hospital early Saturday morning and get induced. We had pizza for dinner, played legos and watched movies. Jack and Ella even slept in a tent in her room. They were so excited. When we put them to bed around 8:45pm, they whispered to each other for the next hour and half. It was so cute to hear it on the monitor. When we would go in and tell them to go to sleep, they said they were just telling each other stories. The funny thing is, they stayed in the tent the whole time. I totally thought they would get out, turn the light on and play in her room. We finally gave up and figured they would fall asleep eventually. They did.

Everett is a human garbage disposal and so damn cute. If he hears a bag of something opening, its like his ears perk up and he follows the sound. Need him to follow you to go do something....give the boy food. While he was eating his pizza, I said to him, "Is Everett hungry?" He throws his head back and rolls it (think Stevie Wonder) and in this little tiny voice with his mouth open wide and smiling says, "Yessssssss!" I wish I could have gotten that on video. It was soooo cute.

Jack and Ella got to pick a movie to watch before bed. They both agreed on Shrek 2. Ella kept trying to cuddle up to Jack. She's such a girl. Jack inched away so many times that within 15 minutes he was sitting on the arm of the couch. He's such a boy.

Precious! Sounds like a wonderful evening. That smile of the little guy is too cute and the cuddle photo w/ Ella's feet sticking out from the blanket is just too cute.

Have I mentioned, "THANK YOU!!!!"? I know the boys loved their time there, and it made me feel better knowing that was the case! The pictures are, of course, phenomenal! Thanks for capturing moments I missed!

Oh that is so cute! Yes, boys aren't that into snuggling. ;)

Our kids have had a sleepover with a friend once before (and will again on Friday). They have such fun with them and they will catch up on their sleep the next day anyways. :)

Oh, how incredibly cute. Look at her all snugglin' up to him. I bet that is one of many sleepovers to come.

Aww, how cute! That sounds like a sweet time. Nadia has NEVER spent the night anywhere but home, and she's never had anyone here!
