What started out as inviting one friend over to help make ribbon boards for their church lifegroup on Saturday... then inviting two friends over to help... turned into inviting 3 friends over to spend the night Friday night and then make the ribbon boards the next morning. Jessica had had a pretty good week, so this was a good weekend for it. We had pizza and the chocolate fondue fountain Friday night. And the girls mainly just closed themselves up in her bedroom and talked, did girl stuff, and watched a movie. Saturday morning, Jessica actually woke up before the other girls, and helped me cook eggs and bacon for breakfast. Afterwards, it didn't take them long to make their three ribbon boards. Then they were back closed up in her bedroom talking, watching a movie or two, playing the game Catch Phrase, and giggling like a bunch of teenage girls. Jessica didn't have a birthday party for her 15th birthday, so this was a good substitute. It was 2 of the girls first sleepover, and I think it was a success! They all seemed to have a good time.
Jessica wanted to get out of the house with us later when we went to Wal-Mart. By the end of the shopping, she said she should've stayed home and was getting tired. But, I believe the sleepover party was well worth it!
