The Nats Sleep Over

Nathan and Natalie have been asking to sleep over for quite a few months now and we finally made it happen last week. To say they were excited is an understatement!

It's always so much fun to plan out what we will do, where they will sleep and what we will eat while they are here. (Here is a link to our sleepover back in March of 2011.) We try to give them our undivided attention, and many special memories are always made in the process. It's nice to occasionally give the "Bigs" an opportunity to enjoy time with Grandma and Grandpa apart from the "Littles". Such is life with two sets of twin grandchildren! Can't wait till the Sams and Emery are old enough to join in!

After a nice walk near the lake, we headed home and began making our pizza. The Nats are both great helpers and love to be in the kitchen. Natalie washed all our mushrooms, Nathan sliced them, and they each created "a masterpiece" that was delicious!

Nathan decided to take a break and race Lightening McQueen on my phone, while Natalie helped with the salad.

 After dinner it was time for the traditional bubble bath, pjs and a game. This time we played "Hisss" a kid's version of dominos and it was alot of fun.

 Soon they were fast asleep...and so were we, knowing they get up a bit earlier than we normally do!

A "must have" according to these two is Monkey Bread, so when we got up it was back to the kitchen to get started!

Natalie helped make a yummy fresh fruit salad and we also scrambled some eggs. The Nats are excellent chefs, and everything was delicious. Can't wait to do it again!


  1. Looks like a good time was had by all.

  3. "We love you so much. Thank you again for having us. Our favorite part was having a sleepover without Samuel and Samantha... and having Monkey Bread too. Can we do it again soon please?"
    - Love, Nathan and Natalie
