Before all the fun began, we wielded staple guns (scaryyy) and tacked up the from last year to get a head start on the decorating...
|Funny story...we were arranging the verse so it read right but couldn't remember how it went so we just stared at it. Then Meg was like "OH! a Bible!" and picks it up. We laughed..it was awesome.|
|This was what it looked like before we ate...can't show ya the after without giving it away!|
|Shiny metal chairs on the table...I couldn't resist.|
After we finished with the decorating (around 9:30), we trekked upstairs to play Catch Phrase. Everyone played it a different way, but we found a style that worked for everyone...but Katie and I were ruthless on each other since we played the same way.
|Note everyone's expressions. They are so diverse!|
So many cameras! I don't know how we heard each other over the sound of the shutter clicking.
|Abbey and her Nikon. I still love her despite her camera company choice.|
|Abbey and Emily.|
|Lauren AKA the girl who ate EIGHT pieces of pizza.|
PJ's were put on and then we gathered upstairs to split up into teams and play an AMAZING hour & a half of Sardines. In a dark church/gym. Best game of Sardines ever. I'm pretty sure there was snorting involved on my part because do you know how hard it is to sit under a conference room table on top of your friend's legs while she does a Hollywood-equse scream?! Unbelievably hard. It was even harder to control my laughter when we all started making animal noises after the billionth time the other teams ran past us.
Back upstairs for a midnight dance party!
|There's Abbey again. She is such a natural photographer!|
|Talking. A requirement at a sleepover.|
At some point (1AM maybe?) we started the movie, Courageous, but Becca & I were oblivious to it all...only catching snippets of was totally worth talking with her. We only stopped talking because it was 3AM and the leaders were semi-threatening us. Hahaha. Good times.
Becca & I were the first ones up & sat in our sleeping bags trying to keep warm (it was freezing!) and talked for another hour, then ventured downstairs to stuff our faces with egg casserole and a fourth doughnut in 24 hours. I'm not proud of that fact but they were just SO good.
Again, thanks to all the leaders who made this happen...it was so awesome!
