Third Annual Back-To-School Slumber Party

Well, it's that time again...Yep! Another school year is just around the corner. That means it's also time for the annual Henderson Hosted Grand Prairie Back-To-School Slumber Party.
Last year we added Gwen to the tradition.  This year...three new members: 2 more neighbors-Reese (going into 1st grade) and Avery (going into Kindergarten), and Cassie, Katie's Bestie.
We started the fun outside sometime shortly after 4.  It was beautiful out but not hot enough for swimming.  Instead the girls started with a dance party on the back deck.

Then it was inside for some video games...

And Barbie playing...

Oooh, and don't forget make-up

And general goofy-ness

Time for some dinner (yeah, totally slacked this year and didn't do homemade pizzas)

Poor Rowe barely made it past dinner

But the kids liked having popsicles for dessert

And playing outside more

They were starting to get a little snippy about the rules of some made-up game, so I decided to switch gears:  CHALK art!

They had fun!

And then, the high school cheerleader in me came out...
They were SO patient with me to get the pyramid to work!
As it started to get dark, the kids were quick to clean up and get in their pj's to start the movie and have some popcorn.
And, it took a while for them to fall asleep.  Cassie was out around 9:30 or so.  The took a while. I think the ultimate winners: Spencer and Avery--our youngest for the evening.

The morning was full of waking up, playing, and DONUTS!!!
