Girl's Sleepover at our House!

  • My Wedding-less Weekend

TOTALLY covered the ENTIRE floor of our house this past Friday night. The study had sleeping bags, pillows and Vera Bradley duffles piled at high as the light switch and 32 high school girls came for the biggest sleepover I have EVER hosted.  32 girls… in our 1300 sq foot house! YIKES! Talked about cramped.  Luckily these girls are amazing and all love each other so it worked out perfectly. I don’t know how 4 girls slept on one couch but they made it happen!  Michael is the Upper school youth pastor at Gayton Baptist Church (pssst. if you are in the Richmond area and need a church home, check it out!).  The thing about being married to someone in the ministry is that

. I feel just as much a part of this job as he is. He hangs out with the boys, I get the girls! This weekend I had 32 of them! To some, having 32 high school girls over to the house sounds like madness… well it is.  But I love the madness… and I love these girls. We had a night full of movies, photo shoots, miniature dance parties, junk food and tons of laughing… LOUD laughing. It was a blast. When girls finally started to get ready to sleep….there were girls covering the WHOLE house… including the hallway. I felt awful that girls were sleeping in the hall but hey, that’s the best our little house had to offer and they didn’t seem to mind.


Friday was an awesome time and I love this new phase of our life.  Michael stayed at another family’s home on Friday and then woke up bright and early and took a group of boys hiking all day! He loves his job and I love that I get to share in it. So there wasn’t a wedding this weekend…. instead I had a sleepover, 3 sessions, and a full day of church…..I’m ready for Thanksgiving break! Enjoy some of our “photo shoot”!

Notice those props? They made their first appearance at the 10-10-10 photobooth!

Practicing our “Model” shots:) These girls are gorgeous!

Loved Margeaux’s reaction after trying to do a “serious” face! Beautiful smile!!

Caitlyn’s laugh is awesome:)

Full house! These next few were taken one right after another so it shows how full the house was!

A VERY special thank you to my amazing sister for coming to help me!! She’s the best … and she makes great pancakes:)
