Big Event Weekend.

This long weekend is full of big stuff. It's not as big (for me, at least) as the first week of December will be, but still busy. Thursday Katherine had a lock-in at a nearby church. As it happens, the church where my water broke when I was pregnant with Jonathon... that's a story for another day if you don't know it already. She was up all night long then slept until 2:30 yesterday afternoon to make up for it before heading out with Ian to the Foo Fighters concert at Verizon Center with some friends. They left around 3:30 Friday afternoon and made it home about 1:30 this morning. I don't think I'll see Katherine until at least noon. Probably not Ian either.

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.

11/12/11: Good morning!

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.
