The Late Over

What is a late-over you ask? I learned the term "late-over" from my niece, Ava. Apparently it is just like a sleepover, but the friend goes home right before bed. We had actually planned on a full sleep-over last night, but Morgan suddenly had a fever and was crying on the couch and Ava had to go home. We didn't have time to get in jammies or pop popcorn and make a mess with it downstairs, but we did have time for a little fun.
We had english muffin pizzas for dinner. Usually I would let the kids decorate their own, but after I did one, I was just too into it. Yeah, I did them all. But they turned out cute and the kids loved them. After the kids ate their pizza, they got a rock candy sucker. These are awesome! I haven't seen them since I was a little kid and got so excited when I found them so cheap at a party store. A total hit with the kids.

After dinner the kids cuddled on the couch and watched Harry Potter. Then Morgan got sick and that was that. Everyone had fun up until then and we are definitely taking a rain check on the sleep-over part of the sleep-over.

What a fun night. I love the "late over :)" The pizza's are darling, I may have to steal the idea. I hope that Morgan got feeling better soon.

I LOVE the idea of a 'late-over!' And those pizzas do look like a lot of fun to do. Sorry Morgan got sick!
