HOW TO BAKE COOKIES WITH PEYTON. . .
Peyton really enjoyed the sprinkles. Hope the people who have to eat the cookies will too. Haha! We made these cookies for Ella's birthday party and Peyton was very proud of them.
After cookie making Peyton did her FAVORITE thing - played games on my iPhone! Peyton loves to play on my phone and she is so good at using the phone. Her friends watched as she played. :)
There were some uninvited guests at the sleepover. Mr. Thunder and Mrs. Lightning make an unwelcomed appearance right before bed. It wasn't that bad of a storm in terms of loud thunder but it only took one "loud noise" to freak Peyton out. She kept asking "Jodi what is that noise?" with every little thing she heard. So I turned on the tv to a show she likes and turned it up pretty loud. We got in bed and watched tv and I let her play one more iPhone game. Distraction is a wonderful thing. She forgot all about the thunder. It still took her until 9:45 PM to fall asleep! The next morning she woke up at 6:00 AM which surprised me since it was still dark outside and really dark in my room. I heard "Jodi? Jodi? Are you awake?" in the most quiet whisper she could speak. I told her it was still night time and she needed to go back to sleep - hey it was worth a try right!? She was pretty quiet until 7:00 AM minus the occasional "Jodi?" with some silly question following (always in a whisper).
So I turned on the tv and got her breakfast in bed - powdered donuts (which she picked out at the grocery store the night before) and yogurt (which she also picked out but then wouldn't eat). After breakfast we had to get ready for a special surprise. . .
We went to Skyzone which is an indoor trampoline (or as Peyton likes to call it jumpoline) park. Peyton was so excited and couldn't stop bouncing while we waiting in line. She has happy memories of the last time we went to trampolines (on the Cape this summer). She spent an hour running and jumping and loving it! She had a blast! They have a toddler area which was just the right size for her and we didn't have to worry about getting run over by the big kids!
Peyton really likes to take pictures with my camera and does a pretty good job. She took about 40 pics of me then I had to send her back to jumping!
We had a lot of fun at the sleepover although I wonder why we call it a "sleep"over since there isn't very much sleep happening! Hehe! The next time we do a sleepover will be this spring when the weather is much warmer in Boston and we can do something fun outside! Looking forward to it.
Love you Peyton! Hope you had fun at the sleepover.
