On the 5th, Gracen's family came over for dinner and then Gracen stayed overnight for her first sleepover at our house! I had lots of fun stuff planned for the girls!
After dinner dress-up time. The three princesses needed their king!
I painted the faces of peg dolls for the girls. They each got a Kenley and a Gracen doll!
I purchased this little doll house cutting file and April cut them with her Silhouette Cameo. The girls got to decorate houses for their dolls.
Gracen's on the left, Kenley's on the right, Claire's in the trash because she decided to do marker all over herself instead and got sent away.... :)
While they were decorating their houses, I taped off the heads of the dolls so that the girls could paint the dolls dresses on with acrylic paint. They were very serious and focused while they painted!

After craft time we had bonfire time!
We roasted marshmallows but the girls weren't crazy about the sticky mess on their hands so they switched over to unroasted marshmallows.... I stuck with the roasted variety!
After campfire time we watched a show and had popcorn (movie time is a sleepover must). Then each girl got to pick a book and we had story time. Kenley of course chose the Spirit the Stallion of Cimarron book which is SO LONG (and she knows the story well so I can't skip pages). Finally around 10:30 we put the girls to bed! Super late, but we wanted them to be super worn out so that they would all sleep really well!
Have you been wondering where Gracen slept in our tiny house? On a crib mattress in between the girls beds of course!
When they woke up we had Cream Cheese Pancakes with Chocolate Sauce and did stickers! Then we headed outside to play! It was a gorgeous day!
Our sleepover ended with some super fun sidewalk chalk painting!
It was a super fun sleepover and they all did great! I am already planning fun activities for Gracen's next sleepover at our house!
One of the projects on my to-do list is to put together a yearbook from our PrePreSchool year. On one of the pages I plan to have comparison pictures of the kiddos from their first day of school and the last day of school. In my head I knew that each of the kiddos really grew up this year but seeing this comparison picture is so shocking! I can't believe how much each of them has changed!
I got my computer back yesterday! I am so thankful to have a working computer back but now I am totally overwhelmed with catching up on pictures! Rather than split them all up into different posts I am just going to dump all of them here in this post! Forgive me for this super long post and for the random order that these pictures have ended up in!
It seems like each time we go to the zoo there is a different "animal highlight" this day was the lion cubs!
Kenley made me a bracelet :)
I had a great girls day with these ladies! Amanda's Momma was super brave and wonderful and watched all of our crazy kiddos all by herself!
