It's always a fun time when we have a Noli sleepover!
Did you know that her name is Magnolia?
Noli for short!
That jumper she's wearing was one that I made for her mother for the first day of school in first grade -- it has a blouse to go with it too (you can see it on mommy here!)
I try to have something special for us to do when Noli is here, but there are all the tried and true activities that we MUST do every time.
Like playing the ponies, um, with the ponies, hehe
and Legos (especially the horse trailer set)
and watching a movie and playing computer games
I believe this movie is Santa Paws
and watching the outside kitties
There's Funny Face (a temporary name) on the shed steps, Daddy Blackie on the potting table, and little Midnight underneath. He's solid black like his daddy so you can barely see him!
So, on our last sleepover, we had the great Glitter Explosion Experiment.... Noli was pretty excited to do it -- glitter you know....
We gathered the ingredients --
a big vase, baking soda, vinegar, food coloring,
a baking pan for the overflow....
and, of course, the most important ingredient, GLITTER!
Noli was pretty stoked that she got new glitter out of the deal, in fancy shaker tubes!
First came the baking soda, carefully measured out....
then the food coloring
and the most fun part....
can I hear you say GLITTER!!
I'm putting in some of each color, Mumsie, won't that be pretty?
then the vinegar.... ohhh, it's starting to explode!!
better get out of the way!!
hmmm, it fizzled out..... let's add more baking soda and vinegar
Here it comes again!
Cool explosion, pretty bubbles and flying glitter!!
After all was done, we poured the gunk into the pan to play with it...
and, of course, add more glitter!
Hmmm, could this have had something to do with the dinky size of the explosion?
Only a year old!!
Next time, I'll buy new baking soda!
Later on we played Polly Pocket
and Polly got a new makeover the next day!
But you'll have to wait for another time to find out just what happened to Miss Polly and her friends....
Glitter could be involved.....
