Grandkids Sleepover!

Last Friday we invited Nathan and Natalie to our house for a sleepover. They get so excited and love to pack their bags with pillows, blankets, stuffed animals, tooth brushes, and all the other essential items required for a successful night at GiGi's, Grandma's and Grandpa's house.

As part of our routine, the Nats love to have stories read to them. I've found some great automated stories as iPad applications that allow Nathan and Natalie to real along, listening to the story and turning the electronic pages when the symbol sounds.  (The automated stories are STORYCHIMES).

After dinner its time for bath, and they definately LOVE bathtime...especially when bubbles are involved:

After bath, it is snack and funny face time:

Soon it is off to the big bed with Grandma (EZ moves to the hospital bed that still adornes the master bedroom), for movietime. We watched the movie Oliver & Company:

The evening came to a close with some tickling (of course), a bible story and prayer time, then it was lights out and sweet dreams! Morning arrives mighty early with little ones and we were all awake by 7:00 to enjoy a few cartoons in bed before heading out to the kitchen to make some french toast to go with our grapefruit.

We love to have the Nats sleep over and can't wait until Samuel, Samantha, and Emery are old enough to join the fun. That will be one crowded bed!


  1. sleepovers with grandparents are always fun!

  2. And they loved spending the night with you!!!! Thank you so much for having them!

  3. How fun!!! I remember pictures of our children in the bubbles together at you house for a sleepover! Wasn't that just a couple months ago?!?

  4. Did the Nats bring their beds too in those carry-alls?
