After a night of movies, video games, poker, television, drama, and more video games... the boys are 'supposed' to be going to sleep.
Fuzzy and friends (and siblings) devoured the pizza, about three slices each. Then, it was off to play knock hockey and the Star Wars Miniatures role playing game.
Then, chocolate and vanilla shakes made by Grandma, with our new Hamilton Beach Drink Master. Very cool!
Next, the Entenmann's chocolate donuts (as mentioned in the last entry), with candles. All of their parents came and dropped off the overnight stuff, and we chatted a bit with friends, as the boys went off to watch 'Casino Royale' (which Hubby went back to the store to buy).
Unfortunately, the boys barely watched for an hour before all heck broke lose and they decided to play poker with chips. Texas Hold 'Em. It was like a WPT Tournament gone wild!!!
Pumpkin led the boys, mind you. The girl is a card shark. Always has been. At 3 1/2 she could play Gin Rummy and Crazy 8's when her five year old brother couldn't. She looooves card games!
While playing poker, the trolls - I mean - kids consumed an entire bag of Tostitos, and good amounts of regular chips, Crunchy Cheetos and Gatorade. Then, Fuzzy decided they should watch the tivo'd show from last night 'Are you Smarter than 5th Grader'.
That made for some more bedlam as they yelled the answers at the stupid adults on the show and played their handheld video games.
They were generally acting like... these guys... SpongeBob and Patrick, for those, not familiar with Nickolodeon!
It seems like everyone was having a good time!
At 11 pm, I rounded up the posse of kids and sent them for pj's and teeth brushing. The boys went up to Fuzzy's room and Pumpkin, much to her dismay, stayed with us downstairs. She is very pissy about the fact that her father and I would NOT allow her to sleep with the boys. Our explanation was illogical to her 10 year old mind and we did have bit of drama from her, on and off, all night.
At midnight, Fuzzy came downstairs, put his eye glasses away, and came in to the family room, where I was watching tv and Hubby and Pumpkin were snoring.
He declared that he was tired and ready to sleep, but his friends would not shut up. (Imagine me trying to stifle a laugh) I reminded him that he was 'Mr. All Night Long' earlier, when I had informed them ALL that their mother's had been promised this would NOT be an all nighter! LOL
I sent Fuzzy back upstairs with a dire warning to repeat to the group that I would be upstairs if I didn't hear quiet in five minutes. By the way, Hammer, the eldest, was already fast asleep.
Of course, I decided to give them about a half hour. I did just softly holler up the stairs to 'go to sleep' before I started typing.
Some muffled giggles were heard as I first began to type, but I just checked them now and all is quiet. << phew>>
I will head off to bed now, since my six are down, plus the Hubby!
