MOTHER DAUGHTER SLEEPOVER

Our church had their 3rd Mother Daughter sleepover this past Friday, and boy..it was fun, fun, fun! I learned from going the last two times that we really don't need to bring a luggage full of stuff from home! So, other than a toothbrush, sleeping bag, and pillow, the clothes I wore there were also my pj's, and when I got up, those were the clothes I left in! LOL!

The girls had a full night planned, starting with a couple of ice breaker games. This was perfect for mom's who didn't really know anyone. One of the prayers that night was for relationships to be formed! So, I know that was a blessing for many! It was a good turnout...roughly 60 people!

After the games, nail polish, new hair styles, a game in the dark, and a movie, everyone got to bed around 2am'ish! We woke up to music blaring around 7:30, but also to the sweet aroma of hot cocoa, bagels, and muffins!! Mmm...mmm!

For privacy reasons, I didn't want to share pictures of any girls I didn't really know. I'm not sure how the mom's would feel with their daughters pictures on the internet.

This is just a portion of what was there! Junk food galore! And excuse the lighting, my camera sucks in dim rooms!

My daughter (in the middle) and her friends! THAT FACE!!! Her "gangsta" look! Ugh!

Oh..lol! Have you heard of the game, "Sardine?" Two people hide and the rest of us have to find them. Once you do, you stay there till the last person finds everyone! The last person to find them has to hide the next time. The fun part of this game is that it's played in the dark! LOL, I had fun taking pictures when we were "hiding." LOL, this picture is of them partially under the pew!!!

Hiding under the stairs!

Of course, I have to add in my baby girl! That's glitter all over her face! LOL

What a cool idea! And it sounds like you had a great time...I miss sleepovers...right now, I'm usually just bunking in one of my kids' beds! Maybe if I added a movie and some junk food it wouldn't be so bad!

That sounds like so much fun! I have heard of that idea for a birthday party, but would love to host something like that at my church! Thanks! :) Lana

That sounds like the best time!!! I remember going to lock-ins at the church but there weren't any moms. That's ok because my mom wasn't fun. lol

Red Thread said...

Sounds like you have a really fun church. This is such a good idea! I think your daughter will be made famous one day for that face. LOL!

What fun! Looks like everyone had a great time.

Lisa said...

looks like a wonderful time with the girls.

Carrie said...

That looks like so much fun!! I also just had to inform you that my almost 11 year old son was sitting at the computer beside me when he saw your daughters picture with her friends....he replied...that one in the middle is hot...lol!! Don't you just love it....now don't tell your hubby...he didn't even like the makeup so he probably would HATE to know that a boy referred to his daughter as hot!!!! And I think the gangsta look is working for her!!

JANE said...

What a great idea!! I would love that!

Stephanie said...
