Family Reunion - Princess Night!

This is a super fun blog posting. The Lauritzen Family Reunion was this past week, July 22-25. It was my parent's and their children and so on, so there were a lot of people, but not too many. The second night of the reunion we had a girls night in my hotel room for everyone ages 7-? whoever wanted to come watch princess movies. We had 9 girls, Amy, me, Tara and Mark. Mark loves princess movies. We watched the barbie version of "Princess and the Pauper". Great movie! Lots of action! Here was my favorite part. Most of the girls made it through the movie, but once the lights and TV were off they were out fast. Then the snore fest began.

Megan ended up sleeping on the bed with me since Kate wouldn't stop trying to use her for a matress.
Lydia (under the blanket) Melissa, Tara and Amy.

Ashley and Ella.

Trina's arm and Emma.


Rachel and Trina (with her football; we never saw her without it!).


Lydia. Most of the night she was smashed into the side of my bed by Melissa. So cute!

Mark's feet, Amy, Lydia, Melissa, Tara - Back row.

The girls all knew the movie pretty well. They sang along with all the songs. I tried to get better video but my camera doesn't like me.
I had a great time! Mark did, too. And he had lots to talk to the girls about for the rest of the reunion. I think he finally gets the plot of the movie now. Thanks, girls, for explaining it to him about a million times and for answering all his questions!

i can't get the video to work. It might just be my crazy computer. Tell me if you can get it to work.
