oh, to be a kid again...

We had some of our nieces and nephews over on Friday night for a special "cousins" slumber party. I can't remember the last time we had so much fun, acted so dippy, ate so much junk, and laughed so hard. I felt like I was a kid all over again. Not only that, but Ruby was completely beside herself with all of her cousins. They ate, danced, and played the night away...that is, until it was time to put her to bed. Poor girl, cried...and cried...and cried...till she finally fell asleep. (She didn't want to miss out on a minute of the action!)

A few pictures from our night of fun...


Eating pizza


Ruby guzzling her soda


During the movie


Watching Ratatouille


Loving the sundaes






And finally...what little angels!

Those videos are only going to become more valuable as those cutie kids get older!

So as to not come across as too much of a bed time nazi, I guess I should let you all know, Ruby stayed up waaaay past her bed time! We didn't put her down til close to 10:00 :)

I wish my kiddos hadn't been sick! Ella and Bennett would have LOVED that! Seriously I am bummed they didn't get to go!

What a great aunt and uncle you guys are! Great dance moves John! I also loved that Ruby is in a diaper...Baylee loves only wearing her diaper. I think Baylee would never put on clothes if I didn't make her!

I love the gate thing hanging on your wall in the backgound..really cute!

I love that Ruby is the topless one... Ha! As long as it's not a habit 10 years from now. :) That is so fun for Ruby to have cousins close enough to spend time with. Fun weekend!

This made my whole day! You and John are seriously the COOLEST!

Little Ruby is so hysterical! I could not stop laughing! And those kids look like oodles of fun.

Seriously, you guys have the most fun of anyone I know.

By the way, I think Ruby gets her dance moves from her daddy. Lol. That was so funny to watch John jump in there. Too much fun!

So you guys are the cool aunt and uncle! For me it was my aunt Jill and uncle Kevin. They would have cousin sleep overs and it was so fun. I still remember them and they definately made them the coolest people in the world in my book. You guys are awesome to do that.

That sounds like so much fun!!! Is it weird that right now I'm wishing I was a niece of yours? :)

I just had to come back and watch little Ruby going wild at the cousins party - again. It's so hilarious!

By the way, what size clothes does little Ruby wear? I have a sun protective clothing company that offered to donate some new, cool sun protective clothes to Cancer Crusaders. And since I don't have kids yet - I want to give these items (if they do, in fact, donate them) to my friends' kids. And with little Ruby being in Arizona... I want to make sure she's protected! :)

PS: I LOVE that picture of her sipping the soda. That girl is GORGEOUS!
