Wordless Wednesday – Sleep Over?

by Janice


If only it were that easy!

(I took this picture during our New Years’ vacation with my in-laws. Let’s just say – the cousins’ “sleep over” part didn’t work! Each night they would not settle down and we had to separate them. But they sure had fun trying!)

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

Nothing beats a sleepover with friends. I remember them well. And who says we can’t still have them when we grow up??? Not me!

Awwwww….too sweet. Nothing like the giggles of a “sleep” over.


3 Pure joy February 27, 2007 at 11:07 pm

Very cute! Bet they weren’t like that for long! I remember those days!

in this picture they don’t really look like they are sleeping! Are they faking? : )


6 Mikki February 27, 2007 at 11:32 pm

What a cute pic. Are they really sleeping or pretending ;-).

Can’t wait for the party to begin. I’ll be posting about it tomorrow!!

I often say there is nothing more sweet than a sleeping child!


11 crickl's nest February 28, 2007 at 12:32 am

They are smiling too much to be asleep….it’s a dead give away! ;) Cute!


12 Liz (Looney Mom) February 28, 2007 at 1:05 am

13 Arlene February 28, 2007 at 1:48 am

Very cute picture! I played too!


14 YoungMommy February 28, 2007 at 1:48 am

So sweet!


15 Jill February 28, 2007 at 2:16 am

Cute! That’s what I imagine the scene at my sis-in-law’s house looking like if she ever gets her wish and The Boy spends the night — a 2 year old, 3 year old and 4 1/2 year old? In the same room? Not a winning recipe for a successful sleepover — if you measure success in the amoung of sleep anyone in the house gets! lol


16 WendyWings February 28, 2007 at 2:18 am

LOL love how they all have grins on their faces. Happy Wednesday to you.


17 Michelle February 28, 2007 at 4:22 am

Is this shot staged? :) Because there seems to be a smile in there.. cute photo though!


18 IRENE February 28, 2007 at 5:19 am

Aren’t they lovely when they are asleep? Or pretend to be (I like that even better!) Especially after a long, happy day! Wishing you lots of happy vacations, sleepovers and smiles!


19 kailani February 28, 2007 at 6:37 am

Don’t you just love it when they’re sleeping? They look so peaceful and innocent!


20 Carey February 28, 2007 at 7:51 am

21 Lisa - TheScrapPrincess February 28, 2007 at 7:52 am

36 Lynne February 28, 2007 at 4:23 pm

I remember those days. We used to play Monopoly with our cousins until the wee hours of the morning.


37 EaglesWings98 February 28, 2007 at 5:13 pm

Awww… Cousin sleepovers (or non-sleepovers) are the VERY best!! I have one to put up in the next couple of weeks, Joey and his cousin had a sleepover in a tent at Nana’s house and Papa had to take Elizabeth in to the tent because she was just TOO curious to be left out! :)

Sheesh, I’m blowin’ brain cells as I push ‘em to the limit to learn about “all things bloggy.” I figure I blew another cell or two as I figured out Wordless Wednesdays. Uh, I did figure it out, right??? ;)

OMGosh, they are so cute! I remember sleepovers, but can’t figure out why they’re called sleepovers since we never got any sleep! LOL!
