Their First Overnight with a Friend

By Twotimesthefun @slcs48n1
The girls spent the night with a friend last night.  It was the first time they spent the night any place other than Gramma's or with their cousins. 
We were nervous that they wouldn't really spent the night.  Their friend is just far enough away that it isn't a quick trip if they decide not to really spend the night.  We dropped off the girls and their stuff after talking to them (again) about spending the night. They were resolute. 
We enjoyed our child-free time with a movie and a little shopping.  It was funny to walk through Target without them.  When we made it home, we started wondering if we'd get a call.  The time passed and the phone didn't ring. Finally we went to bed. 
In the morning we marvelled that the phone didn't ring in the middle of the night.  We had a quiet morning before the girls arrived home about Noon.
They had a great time.  They played games, read magazine stories about Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, ate ice cream, painted their nails and told ghost stories.  All in all it was a fabulous sleepover.
Now they are planning their first sleepover where a friend comes to our house.  I see many sleepless nights with giggly girls coming soon.
