In our family, 12 is a pretty important age. You get to start having sleepovers. Boys get the Priesthood and start passing the Sacrament, girls start babysitting, and one of mom's faves, kids do their own laundry. Wes wanted to have a sleepover with his buddies. Michael, Jonny, Noah, Jacob, and Jordan came. They played a basketball game, had a Wii tourney, a paper airplane flying contest, and watched a movie, and of course, ate some junk food. Wes wanted a chocolate chip ice cream cake. It was huge and so yummy! The boys all had a great time and stayed up til 1:30am. We only have big parties every four years for our kids, so I can handle this every 4 years. It was a lot of fun!
