Jordan Sleepover

I've been talking about having the my brother's kids over one at a time for a sleepover. I really thought it would be a good opportunity to bond and connect with my wonderful nieces and nephews.

Lately, I've been taking the two older girls, Aubrey and Jordan, when they get off school or don't have when I can so they don't have to go to daycare. They really don't like daycare.

One day they were over and it was Friday. I was out working in the yard and Jordi was helping me sweep off the back patio and other various things. She said, "You have to do all the hard work because Dillon can't help you, huh?" And she sounded really concerned. It was sweet.

Then I asked her, "Do you want to help with the weeding?"

And she said, "Yes!... What's weeding?"

I died. She's so cute and sweet. She's always been such a helper and so sensitive.

So when her mom came to pick her up, she still wanted to help me with things. Then I thought it would be a good way to start off the sleepovers.

We let Jordi pick what she wanted for dinner, and we ended up taking out Chinese food. As we were eating, she said, "It's so quiet; I like it." I think she liked feeling like an only child for a little bit.

We watched some TV, talked and laughed. She modeled my gag-gift ESTRADA glasses. She was so funny.

The next day, we did hair and makeup. Jordi is so pretty.

I didn't take pics of her makeup job on me. Let's just say she liked the blue and it kind of looked like I was beaten in an alley. Hee hee. It was a blast though.

After that we went shopping while Dillon got a haircut and Jordi got a cute Justice tee.

I love my little Jordi to pieces. I am so glad we got to spend time together, and I really appreciate her love and help.
