Pillow fight anyone?

It's Slumber Party time over at For the love of vintage... otherwise known as Shabby In The City! Happy Happy Birthday my friend! Head over there for links to see other party goers.

Let's jump on the bed. I promise Mom will never find out!

This morning was chilly. Good thing I had an extra blanket on hand...
Forgot your sleeping bag? No problem. We've got loads of extra blankets, quilts and pillows to share...
I am such a pushover for cute pajamas. Nick and Nora are a particular weakness of mine...And bedtime just wouldn't be the same without a little Chick-Lit to cozy up for a sweet snooze...
In the morning, we'll have cappucinos and relive the memories.
Seriously, slumber parties take me back. Oh, my daughters have had several parties of their own, but the things I did as a child, you could never do with kids today. Completely un-PC! Ah, fond memories of seances with a trip to an actual cemetery at midnight (we were in 6th grade!:P), going to Dairy Queen to order 1 ice cream cone with 10 spoons to share, prank phone calls (no can do with caller id today), dressing up as preggie cheerleaders to terrorize the local Sonic (my dad proudly drove us all there), running naked through the sprinklers in the back yard and more. Good times, good times.

Oh I'd LOVE to jump on the bed! I am always telling my kids not to, but if I could do it at someone else's party, they'd never know! lol Fun meeting you through Phyllis's party!

Oh...I forgot about Dairy Queen ice cream cones and prank phone calls. That definitely brings back memories. No naked sprinkler fun though. LOL

Caller ID really has taken away all the fun!

We used to ride in the back of a pickup, and make faces at all the people we passed. Good times!

Hey friend - sounds like a good party! I haven't jumped on bed in ages - too scared I'd break the slats. ;-)

I did have a slumber party about 5 years ago. The boys were camping and I had K and K over. I cooked dinner for them and we made a mess with paper and stuff. It was a blast. You've got me thinking . . . . .

Oh yes I remember some crazy things we did at slumber parties. Our Barbies always ended up pregnant. We had one Ken doll between 4 of us. Busy guy. Of course we played with Barbies till 8th grade. Now they would never dream of playing with them at that age.Love all you quilts.
