The middle daughter had her friends over last night for her annual sleepover for her birthday–five girls that love her best as friends. Two have been her friends since preschool, while others she’s collected along the way. The played Taboo and SmashUp last night at our kitchen table, ate pizza and cake and ice cream, watched “Into the woods” and went to bed at a decent hour, and now are playing Apples to Apples waiting for their parents to show up. We enjoy having them over all the time to play games or just to hang out. We’re glad to be a party-friendly house (not in the derogatory sense). We’re blessed as well to have these girls in our lives as well as in our daughter’s life. I’m about to go and listen in and see how they are doing. Hope everyone has a great weekend like we have!
