The Party

well, i survived the slumber party. it went really well.

we had our pizza, painted nails, and put on lots of tattoos.
then the girl's watched a movie, and took turns singing with a barbie karaoke machine.
lights went off at 11pm, but they didn't fall asleep until midnight.

i crawled in bed about 12:30am, fed wren around 3 am, heard the 2 little girls getting out of bed at 3:30am and put them back in bed, and then the older ones were all up at 5:58am.
so there wasn't a whole lot of sleep involved, but everyone had a good time.

on saturday, dave called his sister maria to come over and take his place cause he had a "house to finish up." i think it was code for "this was fun, but i'm done now," but he sticks to the house story. :)

i made "princess" pancakes (pancakes with pink sprinkles in them) for breakfast and then we played some games.
the last of them left around 1pm, and then i put myself and my kids to bed.

after a short nap and a long shower (during which no one tried to cut their hair off...:)
i got ready to go out with dave.
we headed out around 4 and didn't come back until 10:30 or so.
it was wonderful!!!!!!

here's a few pictures of the party.
when i look at these i can't help but think about how quickly they are growing and how much i wish we could keep them this close and this sheltered forever.
they are each so beautiful and so special to me.....i can only hope there will be many, many more "little girl" slumber parties here for many years to come.
