The Sleepover

Ian wanted to have a sleepover to celebrate his birthday...(homemade cookie cake by mom, which was yummy, by the way....)Ian cheesing for me....He did this last year, and loved it...so this is a repeat-party....Blowing out the candles, and captured this perfectly in a photo...can even see the smoke in the pic...Make a wish....Same friends, same games, lots of things are pretty much the same...Except Ian is a year older....The boys played outside until almost 11...James and I with our big guy...Love you Ian...Tanner, Tyler, Alex, Tyler L., Ben, Noah, Hunter, Ian, and of course, Cade...(Cade actually spent the evening with his new friend from Kindergarten, Tayla-Tyler and Tanner's little sister) He and Tayla have hit it off...Cade talks about her ALL the time....He said that she is one of his best friends....He has been over to her house 3 times already.....and he loves every minute of it...=) Macey isn't in any of the photos, because she wanted to go to Dollywood(a local theme park)...Her friend from school, Kendall, invited her to spend the night, and then go to Dollywood tomorrow...so she chose to do that, rather than hang out with a house full of boys...Can't say that I blame her there....


Only middle school boys would find enjoyment in killing a slug with salt, while shining a flashlight on it....Who would've thought? ;)The whole gang...Posing for me...Thanks guys...This is the shot of the boys from Ian's 10th Birthday...He added a few friends, this year...and boy how those guys have grown...They are such a close group of friends...and such good kids..I just hope they stay close all the way through high school....Then they all came inside and ate all of the leftover pizza, and watched the Olympics....There sure were some "stinky" boys after all of the playing and sweating outside....and they all wanted to wash their feet...because they couldn't stand the smell of each other's feet....Boys are too much...They played kick the can, hide and seek, and a few other games while they were out side....=) The boys are having a great time...I can hear them, as I am blogging, getting settled down for bed....James is planning on cooking them a big breakfast in the morning, of biscuits and gravy, bacon, and eggs....The boys voted, and that is the breakfast they chose...James loves to cook for them...sort of tradition, I guess....So, I am in the bedroom, laying with Cade....and the boys are in the den...settling down for some rest....Hope everyone has a great weekend...I shoot another wedding this weekend...on Sunday...Let's get some sleep....Good night....

Hi Cassie! I just survived an 11 year old's sleepover at my house. So glad kids only have birthdays once a year!!

Looks like they had a great time. Love the head lights!

Wow, that really is a big difference in one year. I didn't think kids changed that much once they were older, but they look like a different group of kids. It sounds like a wonderful party!
