Notice the green & red placecards on the plate? Yeah, that would be my overly-creative 9 year old! She had a blast the night before the party making herself at home in my big tote of scrapbooking papers and supplies!
It was a lot of fun! Not a lot of sleep but quite a few lasting memories. Of, course we had a squabble or two, you can't have THAT many females in a house without a hurt feeling or grumpy 'tude!
My two testosteronies returned from a rowdy production of Treasure Island just in time for my husband to see one of the girls hop from the coffee table OVER the back of the couch...our kids aren't even allowed to put their feet on the couch...I thought he would have an anyurism!
My hubby retreated to bed. My son threw on his PJs and joined the party! The girls (& boy) were up until I insisted on lights out and sent the small testosterone to his own room at 1:45am. The coughing, snotty one woke up at 6:45am!!
What a party! Mommy needs a nap...trouble is, the sleepy girls just left and the FAMILY party is in just a couple of hours. Yawn!
Where's my caffeine IV?
