welp. that was a first.

last week anne turned 11.  ELEVEN.
i still can't hardly discuss that.  ELEVENYEARSOLD.
anyway, she started talking this fall already about wanting a sleepover.
i went into mom mode-
1. ignore idea
2. talk around idea
3. accept there was no way i was going to talk her out of this idea
4. start planning

anne is a planner.  she likes things her own way.
apparently, she got that from me.

overall the party went off without a hitch.
anne and i had a few hiccups with what she thought was supposed to happen, and what her very uncool mother was doing...
but we figured it out.

kate invited a friend for the night as well.  her little bestie.  they are two peas in a pod.  that was a great idea in theory-but the big sister, thought they were nothing but a bother. ;)

it was absolutley exhausting.
but the girls were perfect.
they didn't stay up too late.
anne loved having her friends here.
and we got them all too church-with time to spare!
adam and i were giving mental high fives to each other the whole time!!

sweet julia.

kate's friend cami joined the fun

good friend libby

Holland and Anne have gotten to be great buds this year.

they are growing up....

the little ones let me bowl with them. :)

photo booth hysteria
