Sleepover mission accomplished!
What a day yesterday!
Hubby and I ran around to get all the necessary goodies for the party.
Birthday plates and napkins, party favors, Ghostbusters movie rental, 3 bags of snacks, 2 kinds of cupcakes, and candles.
Picked up the party gals and Fuzzy and headed to the bowling alley. Bought them, soda, juice and french fries as an after school snack while bowling. The french fries are to die for at the bowling alley, trust me.
Hubby and I watched the 2 games of bowling amid screams, screetches, hugging and singing, as ten year old girls are wont to do.
Pumpkin was having a blast. Hubby and I tried to pretend we didn't have headaches.
Cruised home to pick up Hammer and went to dinner at 5:30 pm.
Lots more squealing, singing and laughing... cackling really, but cute and fun. Ate good food and headed back to the house!
Then it was time to open the gifts and cupcakes, candles and singing. After the cupcakes were devoured, the girls all got into their jammies and went to watch Ghostbusters. Hammer watched with them, but Fuzzy decided he had enough girl time. lol
At 10pm it was teeth brushing time and they headed up to Pumpkin's room. Hubby, the boys and I decided to watch Numb3rs and tried to ignore the banging and giggling.
At 11:15pm the boys went up to bed and we told the girls to quiet down to a dull roar, they could talk, but should shut out the lights and stop the loud shenanigans.
I read journals at the computer for a while, and listened for them to settle down. Hubby passed out on the couch in the family room.
At midnight, it seemed quiet. I was soooo tired and started to clean up the kitchen and shut down the computer like I do each night.
Next thing I knew, 2 of Pumpkin's pals where giggling on their way to the bathroom. Oh well. I told them to be sure not to wake the others and go to sleep, but they didn't listen and woke up the other two, and the giggling started all over again. I shushed them about three times before FINALLY at about 1pm... there was silence.
I was sound asleep in minutes, which is very unusual for me!
This morning my mom dealt with the crazy crew since they got up at 7am! Thank goodness for my mom and the fact that she can't sleep in the morning!!
Hubby then gave the girls their party favors and helped them out the door to their parents at 10:30 am. I slept in!!!
I needed it! I got up at around 1:30 pm.
The favors were cute little pocketbooks each in a different color and different sayings - Princess, Diva, Superstar and Drama Queen. Of course, Pumpkin got purple and it said Princess. Inside were soda bottle lip balms, and travel trivia cards.
Pumpkin just told me that everyone was happy with the favors! Yay!
Tonight is fast food for the kids and dinner out for Hubby and I at the fondue restaurant! Yum! Adult time... I can't wait!
ps... UPDATE - Please note, Pumpkin's age has been changed to '10' in the All About Me section, thank you!
