When Kennedy asked to have a sleepover for her birthday, I was super nervous! We have never had a sleepover at our house before…I was worried about crying, how the dogs would handle it, and what time I would actually get to bed! They shocked me! These girls were so well behaved, and they were all sleeping for 11:00pm. Definitely a success!
We invited all her cousins and neighbors, and had 7 girls stay over to sleep. Easton was the only boy allowed ;)
We invited all her boy cousins and neighbors over for some cake and pizza before the sleepover started. She asked to have an emoji party, so that’s exactly how we decorated!
When it was cake time, Daddy lit 7 candles for the birthday girl. I double checked the candles when I bought them to make sure they weren’t “trick candles.” Apparently, I need to triple check, because a couple of those candles would not blow out! Luke had to come to the rescue :)
When it was present time, Kennedy loved opening new clothes, pillows, and an artist kit!
Out of all of her presents, I think her favorite one was her new books. This girl loves to read! Her class reads Junie B. Jones books when they have extra time, and she was shocked to get a couple of her own. She read all weekend, and she finished her first chapter book that Monday :)
Another one of her favorites was her very own camera. Since she is the selfie queen, I figured she would be super excited with her own camera. It works like a Poloroid camera, and it shoots the pictures out! She was able to put them in her very own album to keep in her room.
Next, we sent the boys home so that we could begin with the sleepover fun!
They started off by coloring a page I created for them with their names. We hung them on the fireplace when they were done.
Next, we played Emoji Bingo. They loved it so much, I think we played two or three times!
We then had a disco dance party! We turned out all the lights, gave everyone glow sticks, and turned up some dance music. They were laughing, dancing, singing – it was so cute! Even Daddy joined in on the fun. They were laughing at his dance moves :)
My camera wouldn’t focus with all the light action, so I eventually had to turn on the flash :(
Next we laid out everyone’s sleeping bags in the living room. We rented Captain Underpants and had some popcorn! I went to check on them around 11:30pm, and all of them were knocked out!
When they woke up the next morning, they had Emoji muffins and Emjoi pancakes for breakfast!
They really were so well behaved, and they gave me hope for more sleepovers in the future ;) Happy birthday, love bug! I hope you had fun :)
