1. I like sleep over parties. I like playing and spending time with my friends. At school, we are too busy with our studies to really talk and play. When my friends and I meet for sleep over parties, we really get to talk and play without worrying about time. Sometimes, we stay up till late at night and play video games and board games. We watch T.V. and we talk about our card collections and we have lots of fun. That is why, I like sleep over parties.
