Sleepover, Bean and 'G' style

Friday night, the night that will forever go down in history as "the first sleepover, ever" had Bean and G giddy all filpping week!

G's mom was able to get near perfect behavior all week, for the mention of 'Friday night' brought instantaneous improvement.

Bean's mom...not so much 'near perfect' but it sure made Bean straighten up!


G arrived after dinner, which was perfect because it gave Bug just enough time to play with her before going to bed that she felt included.  Bean was ever so grateful for Bug's early bedtime because she was already getting annoyed...or continued to be annoyed because I don't know if her annoyance with her sister has a beginning and end at these days!!

I then swept the girls away to the wonderfulest thing in the world...the drive-thru at McDonald's for chocolate dipped ice cream cones!
uh, YEA, she can have ICE CREAM!

They hung out, watched the Phineas and Ferb movie, and then got ready for bed.

some art work was attempted, as well

love the little 'hip stuck out' pose from Bean!


I gave them a good twenty minutes to 'whisper' after getting settled into bed.  And then I went up to remind them that "sleep" was a big part of a 'sleep over' and if the "sleep" didn't happen then the "over" was going to be over and G was going to be taken home. (Yeah, I'm mean like that! ;) )

The quite lasted for about 5 minutes, then Bean came down with her pod hanging by a thread.  Lovely!  She was due for a change the next morning, but it should have held on until then.  Whatever!  So, quick pod change; settled them back down, and thankfully they were both sound asleep in about 15 minutes.



Ubergeek took them to Bouncin Bears the next morning (along with Bug) so they all wouldn't kill  be annoyed with each other...and so I could sleep because that late night pod change had me up chasing BGs pretty much every hour!  (Yep, he's awesome like that!)

what goes up...

must come down...really fast!!

and with TONS of high speed giggles!!
no, I didn't blur Bean's face...she's just laughing that hard!


All in all, it was a fabulous 'first' and Bean is super excited to do it again.

I can't say I'm 'super' excited, but I'm open to the possibility! ;)

  9. How cool - though it sounds like you were awake for much of the sleepover. Nighttime set changes - no fun, but great that the Bean didn't have to slow down because of it!
