Are You Crazy?!

Well, yes, I am. However, this was not my doings. This was my husband Paul's. Believe it or not, it really was. Zoe asked her daddy back in the summer if she could have one & he told her sure. Since then she has asked at least once a week & he keeps telling her sure, but then does nothing further. Until about three weeks ago. Zoe finally got him to commit. And commit he did. To last night, February 13th. Once the date was down on paper, he told her to invite whoever she wanted, just no boys. So, Zoe did. She invited 16! Yes, 16 five year olds to our house for a slumber party! Why? Just because Daddy said she could!
You ask how it went? Amazingly well. All 16 girls showed up & only 1 did not stay the night. (We did have 3 of our 8th grade neighbor girls - Abbie, Taylor, & Madalyn - that acted like chaperones & did crafts, nails, etc. & even spent the night. We owe them BIG TIME!) It was about 10:30 PM when Paul went downstairs to check on them & they were all sound asleep.
