Let the Sleepovers Begin

Last night we had the opportunity of watching Cole Drysdale, Devin's friend from birth. He brought a bag full of stuff and thus commenced Devin's first sleepover! The night started out with lots of growling, running, climbing, a whole lot of giggling, and of course eating.

What better dinner than pizza at a sleepover?!

After a ton more giggling and running from room to room (which Jamin was thrilled about because it's usually him that has to run with Devin) we popped some popcorn and watched a movie in mom's room.

Not such a good idea.

Then bedtime came. At 8:30 I put them the same bed...and prayed for a miracle.

They pretty much growled and giggled (I know right?...what a bunch of little girls) regardless of my repeated attempts to get them to go to sleep (I even used my mean voice) until 10:00 pm. Not too bad. So I go to sleep expecting a long night...and rightly so because at 1:30 am I hear Devin...giggling of course. Then as I leave the room to tell him to go to bed I hear him say... "wake up...WAKE UP!" And now Cole's awake too! They fall right back to sleep though and don't wake up until 7:30 am. It is now 8:15 and they haven't stopped giggling. Cute, huh?

Oh my gosh...How fun! The boys are adorable together. Sleepovers as a kid were always the best. I'm glad it went so well! Super fun pics.

You are so brave and oh so nice- I definitely owe you one.... or 2 or 3 really. You got some great pics, and I love that they are best friends! Did I tell you he thinks Devin is his cousin? I'm ok with that. :)
