We kicked off our last week of summer with a bang...Ella's first sleepover. It was her non-party birthday this year but she did want to have a few friends spend the night. I didn't plan anything other than buying some snacks for them, but Ella knew exactly what would be on the agenda...watching the movie Nancy Drew, playing Apples to Apples, staying up until midnight and eating birthday cake pancakes for breakfast. This is such a great group of girls that I knew they would be pretty easy. I tried to stay out of their way most of the night and we heard giggles and laughter until after 1am. In the morning we had the special pancakes Ella had seen a picture of and then met up with more friends at the pool. We were all ready for bed by that evening :-)!
