Adventures in Baby-Sitting

This past weekend the boy's niece had her first ever sleepover at our new house. We had actually watched her overnight once before when she was only 10 months old, but that was before we bought the house. And it's quite a bit different having a sleepover with a 10 month old versus a 2-and-a-half-year-old. The chair in the library converts to a bed, so we were able to change the room up as shown in the following Before and After pictures.

Like any good sleepover we started the night off with pizza.

Between the stuffed animals she brought with her, and the ones I have in the house since I refuse to get rid of my childhood, there was no shortage of things to play with.
Arranging the Animals
And when we got tired of playing with the animals we just took a few spins around the living room.
At the end of the night we made ice cream sundaes and watched A Little Mermaid.
The following morning she helped me make a batch of blueberry pancakes.

I figured I'd end things with one of my favorite perfects from the weekend, us with our matching ponytails.

Even though you can't tell from the pictures, the boy was actually there as well. He just went through an extreme effort to avoid being in any of the pictures, and clearly succeeded. I hope everyone else had a great holiday weekend too!
