Meanwhile, Rebecca had some friends over for a sleepover. For her birthday I'm taking her and 3 friends to see "A Christmas Carol" at Ford's Theater, but since these 3 friends mix worlds, and Rebecca doesn't like mixing worlds, she wanted to have them over beforehand so there would be no awkwardness on her birthday.
One friend arrived, then we drove to pick up another in Falls Church, and the third came over shortly after we returned home. It all worked out. After pizza and a project...
...two girls fell asleep against their will around 3 a.m. The other two stayed up until 5 a.m. Guess how Rebecca will be later today... a) happy-go-lucky, b) sleepy but sociable, c) a royal pain in the neck due to exhaustion.
But they had fun, and aside from quite a bit of noise even past 1 a.m., they were fine.
I do have to give a shoutout to Rebecca and her friends. They were really really good with the boys. They talked to them, included them a bit, let them hang around last night and this morning. They also didn't complain about my poorly shaped and periodically burnt pancakes. They're a really nice group of girls.
