The second night we were in the hospital after having Anna, McKenna got to go to her first grand-daughter sleepover with Dan's parents.
I got all of these pictures and text from Dan's mom's blog. (Hope that's ok. :))
"Oh how I love these girls! It was their turn for their sleepover with Grandma and Grandpa! What sweet girls they are, too! We had a blast! I had 12 things for us to do over the next 24 hours... all numbered. The numbers were in a jar, and they got to take turns picking those numbers out of the jar. Here's the run down... hold on to your hats. It was a great and marvelous time! :D
First of all, we started out with princess cupcakes! Ya have to have "tea" and cakes at 4 in the afternoon, right??
Then we made these awesome foam frames
We also got 5 different flavors of hand sanitizer! YUMMY!!! And these darling mouse sanitizer holders!!
For dinner we made our own pizzas and bread sticks out of bread dough. We had grapes, too! Delish!
The next pick was Hoola Hoops! We tried our hand at hoola hooping! Emma was a pro!
The other girls will get lots of practice now that they have their own!
After we hoola and/or hooped, we decided to make a game out of them, leap frogging... but don't jump outside of the hoop, or the sharks will eat you. They all did really well.
That day we also made foam door hangers, got stamps and pads of paper!
Then it was time for our movie! I really wanted to show Princess Bride, but I think it's at Mantua! DARN!! So, we found another movie... Princess Protection Program... kinda cute, but kind of a random movie. Anyway, the girls got a wand that glowed in the dark, popcorn and their movie! It was all good!
Then prayers and bed time at 10:00! Can you believe it! Even Emma! All were quiet by 10:30! Whew! We wore them out! Love you girls!
Next morning the little Princesses didn't come upstairs till 8:30! I was shocked and just a little bit
happy about that --- that they slept so well!
This was the royal table that they came upstairs to! Crowns at each of their plates!
See the king in the back, slaving away making french toast and eggies... isn't he the best?
After breakfast we did some puzzles... not just any puzzles, but 3D puzzles.
Painted some ceramic princess pieces. they did such a darling job!!
Then, it was time for the outside/get wet/kind of fun!
I had cut up three different colors of foam sponges into thirds and put them together with a rubber band.
We started out with just tossing them back and forth into our buckets of water... three of us on each team. But then, Grandpa got a little careless, and hit Grandma in the lower section on her body... and you know... one thing led to another and well... you get a foam bomb water fight!!
I think the girls really liked throwing their bombs mostly at grandpa... and they were alright getting hit... so long as it was below the waist.
They ran races up and down the lawn to dry off... such endless energy, I tell you what!
The girls also got pinwheels to twirl in the wind while they ran.
Then, inside for water to drink and more number picking.
Next up... Nails and Lips... they got nail polish and lip gloss stuff.
They also got princess bracelets, a pink water weenie, a patriotic rubber duckie, we played Bingo.
And last but not least, they got a princess pencil and pad of paper to use while they read their scriptures. Those are to use with scriptures so that they can write down their favorite scripture or thoughts about a scripture to help them remember how they felt about what they were reading
because they are a princess, and a daughter of a Heavenly King!
We love these girls so much! Thank you for coming you sweet little things!
You are each so precious to us and we love you so very dearly!!
Never forget that!! We had a great time being with you!!!"
