Slumber Party!

It had been a few months since our last girls sleep-over and the girls were diligent in reminding me that we needed to do another one. For the first few weeks after doing a sleep-over, Libbi asks me every time she sees me, "when are we going to do another sleep-over?" And, since Pike is now due anytime, I figured I'd better do a "girls sleepover" because once he's here, can I really call it a "girls" sleepover? I guess the for the next one, we'll need to include Racer and Jia Tai so that Pike doesn't feel outnumbered.

So, we started out Monday afternoon by going to Starbucks where we each got our own treat. We sat at Starbucks and enjoyed each other's company while sipping our Strawberries & Creme Frappuccino, Double Chocolaty Chip Frappuccino and the simple Milk and Chocolate Chip Cookie option. After our coffee break (or un-coffee break) we went to the park and got a bunch of energy out! The girls weren't ready to leave until I told them that when we got home we'd do our craft. Then their feet went straight for the car.Jovie, playing like a big girl at the park.

Best Friends.
Libbi Lu.

Aspen and Pear.

Poor Jovie, she tried so hard to be big but just couldn't quite make the cut! She helped by stringing ribbon across the kitchen, spilling buttons on the floor and throwing pom-poms on the table while we used our creativity to make our fabric scrap pictures in frames I picked up from Goodwill. I think they turned out super cute and I think the girls were pleased as well.
The lovely artists with their crafts. (Pear wouldn't get in the picture.)

Pear's craft.

Stephen made us dinner and then it was time to dip our strawberries in chocolate, do make-overs on each other (Pear had fun putting eye-shadow on her cheeks,) and then it was time for pedicures! I wish I had more pictures but I was a little busy. After everyone got their toes all dolled up, we settled in for the night and wound down by watching The Princess and the Frog while eating popcorn, our strawberries, and drinking milkshakes. What a day!
Wiped out!

Did I mention that Pear was the last one awake and the first one up the next morning? On top of the fact that she was awake for a good hour or two in the middle of the night, keeping Libbi awake by her chattering! She dozed off by 9:30pm and was awake at 6:00am ready to go and get donuts! Ah, the energy of a three year old, (and the schedule that allows for a nap.)
