I like this picture because it's a lot like what the girls' room looks like right now - two sleeping bags and a girl on the bed. We're having our very first sleepover ever! Vicki and her friend Shelbie cooked up the plans on the phone all day long yesterday (seriously, all. day. long.) They spent a good part of their phone calls trying to keep me in the dark as to what they were talking about, but Vicki kept coming to me with questions like, "What time do you go to bed, usually?" (after you're asleep) and "Are you a light sleeper?" (heck, yeah) Hmmmmm... We had pizza for dinner, they watched The Princess Diaries 2 while eating chocolate, and they danced to the last half of the finale of So You Think You Can Dance. Shelbie was disappointed by the winner, Vicki was not. After that they were so wound up that I had to yell, "Girls!" in my mommy-warning-voice (the one that used to drive me nuts when my mother used it at my sleepovers!) several times before they finally settled down. I can still hear quiet talking, but my bet is that Lexi is asleep (thrilled to have been included), Ellie having crashed during the dancing, and the other two are probably pretty close. I'm not going to sleep before it's totally silent, though. They stopped talking too many times as soon as I entered the room for me to give them that opportunity! They also wanted to know if I slept with my bedroom door open or closed when Chris is gone (yep, he managed to be out of town for the girls' night). I don't know what they're planning, but I will be on my guard all night long. I don't think they're old enough to know about bras in the freezer or fingers in warm water, but they have vivid imaginations, so I'm sleeping with one eye open tonight!
