Star Wars Sleepover - Success Story!

Last Night Charlie had a sleepover to celebrate his 7th birthday.  It was his first sleepover, as well as the first sleepover for all of his friends.

We had a great time, but I will be honest and say that I was very happy to send our guests home. =)

As the guests arrived, the lightsaber duels began.

Even Anna got in on the action.

Then, it was time for pizza and Yoda Soda.

Followed by cake (my favorite part!)

We watched a movie (Star Wars - of course!)  And the boys got excited about the lightsaber action scenes and felt the need to act them out.

The boys finally started to quiet down around 10:30, and all was quiet by 11:00. The late hour didn't stop them from waking up a little after 6:00 this morning -- and picking up right where they left off with their lightsaber action.

After Star Wars pancakes for breakfast, the boys finished off the party by taking down the Evil Sith Lord, otherwise known as the mean Dad who wouldn't let them jump on the furniture, slam doors, or scream when it was well past bedtime.  How dare he?! =)

All in all - it was a great party, and huge success for a first sleepover.  Our house is still standing, at least!

And, I can see the wheels turning in Paige's head already about when she has her first sleepover.  I am pretty sure I will have to stock up on sedatives for Jonathan before that ever happens.
