"Mom can I go over to Beth's house?" Bailey asked her mom. "Yes. Don't get home to late now!" Bailey called "Love you!" and she was out the door. RING,RING! Bailey answered her cellphone to find Beth's voice. "Hi Bailey. Are you coming over?" Beth questioned her best friend. " Yes. I am at your door right now." Ok I'll answer it now." Beth said. Beth ran down the soft carpet stairs and opened the heavy door. " Hi Beth." Bailey said. "Hey." Beth said back. "How are you doing Bailey?" Mrs. Simon asked. "Fine how are you?" Bailey answered. " Come and get a snack girls."
Mrs.Simon said. The two friends enjoyed a snack of warm cookies and cold milk.
Beth and Bailey went upstairs to play Barbies. Bailey picked Beth's Barbie that she named Teresa. Teresa is Bailey's favorite Barbie. Beth told Bailey that tonight is a special sleepover because tomorrow is her eleventh birthday. Bailey took out her cellphone and called her mom. "Hello?" Mom answered. "Hey, Mom Beth just said that today is her special sleepover for her birthday party. Her birthday is tomorrow. Can I spend the night?" Bailey explained to her mom. "Yes and I will bring over her gift and your clothes right now,ok?" Mom told Bailey. "Yes." Bailey said. "Good-Bye! Love you!" Mom said. Bailey told her mom that she loved her ,too. The two girls were so excited!
KNOCK,KNOCK! That was the sound that came from the front door. Beth's mom answered the door. "Hi Mrs.Simon."Beth's mom greeted Bailey's mom. " Hello." Bailey's mom greeted Beth's mom. Mrs.Simon handed Bailey her bag. Bailey was about to go back upstairs when her friend Julie knocked on the door. Beth ran down the stairs and greeted her friend and new guest. Beth told Bailey and Julie where to put the presents. Julie, Bailey , and Beth stayed in the living room and watched Hannah Montana. Another knock was heard and Beth's mom answered the door. "Hello Staphanie!" Beth's mom greeted her daughter's guest. Stephanie went into the living room and Beth told her where to put the presents and so on with the other guests.
Before they knew it, the digital clock read 12:00. Beth's mom said "Girls time to eat a midnight snack!" Beth and her guest went into the kitchen and ate warm chocolate chip cookies with cold milk. After their snack they went upstairs into Beth's room. They laid down their sleeping bags and laid down on them. They fell asleep at 1:03 a.m.
