Popping in

Popping in quickly today (I’ll have more to post soon!)

We’re still recovering from El’s sleepover party.  
Such a fun party and SO easy.  
The girls played, ate pizza and cake, swam in the hot tub, and watched a movie.
We gave them all matching panda pajamas.
And they looked adorable.
But they wouldn’t go to sleep.
Then they finally went to sleep but then they all woke up WAY too early.
That was the only not fun part that wasn’t SO easy.
But overall the party was a huge success. 
I know this because my now 10 year old daughter hasn’t stopped smiling since.
Mission accomplished.  
p.s.  Confession:  Remember how I said I was going to organize one room at a time so that I didn’t get projects going on all over the house?  Well.  Right now I have projects going on all over the house.  
But they are happy projects so I’m ok with that.  You are allowed to break your own rules if it makes you happy.  

That’s another rule.  

That I can break at any moment.  
Be back soon.  Enjoy your day!

xoxo, Erin

  1. A Panda party how cute! Love it! Sleepovers can be sooo exhausting.

    I still cant wait to see your family room and how you have decorated it!!:)

    Seeing the sun reflect in the house is so nice, here in Michigan its -9 cant wait for summer!!!!

    Have a great day!

  2. Panda party sounds so fun and perfect for this age!!

    I had projects going all over the house yesterday – 5 rooms at a time trying to beat the donation pickup truck that I had scheduled to come to my house yesterday morning and get a good haul for them to take with them! I did make it – but then had to put back together all the rooms I had torn apart (toys!) so the kids weren’t too suspicious.

    When I was putting things back, I realized how much more I had missed, so will have to do it all over again next month I guess. :)

    Good luck!

  3. Thanks everyone!

    Lauren – it will be a while before we do it again! Took me days to recover from the little sleep!

    Tara – we bought them on-line at Justice! They are green with little pandas all over them. They are El’s favorite pj’s. :)

  4. I’m curious when you do birthday parties do you invite the parents to attend as well? It seems like it would be easier to just have the kids be dropped off rather then feeling like you have to entertain the parents too. My kids are still little yet, so I’m wondering the rule of thumb for when they get a little older.

  5. Anonymous – once kids get a little older parents do drop them off. I went with my kids to parties until they were about 5 (maybe 6?). That seems to be the norm. Now we always just drop the kids off and pick them up. For El’s sleepover her friend’s parents just dropped them off with their things and we took the girls home the next day. Hope that helps! :)
