The Big Sleep Over

Not sure if I have mentioned this or not but this year I volunteered to "Co-lead" the Girl's Daisy Girl Scout troop.  We have been having a lot of fun with it and the other Moms have been AWESOME about helping out.  This past Friday, was the Cookie Dance which falls the night before "Cookie Go Day".  This is when the girls can start to sell Girl Scout Cookies. 

Last year we opted not to sell cookies as we felt the girls were a little young for that.  This year we decided to go for it.  A and E have been having fun and they even went through the neighborhood on Saturday with Jon to sell some cookies.  The neighbors were very sweet and did buy some from the girls!  If you are one of them THANK YOU.  Next we hit up the family and of course they were generous and bought cookies as well. 
Back to Friday night...I decided it would be a perfect night to have our big "Sleep over"!  So 12 girls and 4 moms came over after the cookie dance and we had a PJ party.  The girls watched a movie, played hid n go seek, ran around like crazy, and had some good ole fun.  The Mom's managed to have some fun too. 

The next morning, after a night of very little sleep, we had pancakes, sausage, fruit, and juice.  The girls played some more and then they all headed home.  It was a fun event and one that I dare say we will do again next year.  I am simply so impressed with our troop this year and how the girls are all so kind to one another.  It really is neat to see.  They all slept mostly through the night and were up early. 

Jon and K had to find another place to stay that night.  K exclaimed "I do NOT want to be home for that!"  I can only imagine in a few more years he will not want to leave for the event. 
The thing that makes me smile the most about the event is that the girls will have so many fun memories of these times.  I am so glad that get these opportunities.  Now...anyone want to buy some Girl Scout Cookies?!?!?!?!?!?
