Thankfully, his little friend's mama is a good friend of mine, and totally understands my situation. There were a lot of times when I sat in comfort with the boys, monitoring a game, while she cooked or put things away or washed dishes. Thank you Sarah, for being so awesome!
Here are some fun things we did to
1. Trail Mix Station:
2. Supervised games:
3. Fun dinner idea the boys could make: pigs in a blanket:
5. Things got serious when we broke out our fort building skills. I have learned the key to making a good fort is rope. We tied the rope in 4 places, making a weird quadrilateral shape, and covered with a HUGE sheet. (another key: blankets pull things down, sheets are easier, save the blankets to make excellent floors). And one last thing all complete forts need: a string of holiday lights. Okay, a fort is just fine without, but we were honestly working towards a Ph.D in fort building. Or at least a badge of some sort:
|Brycen would like me to say the lantern is also needed for staying in a fort.|
6. Once the fort is completed it is time for:
7. Then we wound down for bedtime:
8. They actually did sleep in the fort!
10. We totally forgot to make special drinks last night. Not wanting the ingredients to go to waste, we decided 10am is a great time for Shirley Temples:
11. We had some time to kill this morning, and since the weather was not favorable for going outside, we used the energy we had left to paint with the boys. I will probably do a separate post about making homemade Valentine's this week. It ALWAYS helps to have all art supplies ready before even mentioning painting or an art project!

Overall: Sleepover success!!
