Survivor Story

I survived Carly's 12th birthday slumber party!! I planned, I prayed, I facilitated and I survived!

Two of the guests came home from school with her so the festivities started early. I actually thought that she might get some work done before the party. Boy, what was I thinking? She didn't seem stressed about the house, so I didn't either. (I mean hey, it's not like it is filthy dirty any way!)

We made mini pizzas, had nachos, carrot cake (Carly's favorite made by Uncle Louie) and they giggled and squealed and did what 12 year old girls do best: talk about boys. We even loaded up in the back of the truck and went visit a couple of boys. They thought that was pretty cool and I got a kick out of the reaction of the boys when a truck load of 6 girls drove up to their houses. :o)

They piled up in the living room about 11pm and watched movies til 2am they said. Not me....I went to bed and was sawing logs. I got up about 430 to check on them and it was a sea of arms and legs in the living room. Two of the girls slept together on the couch....good thing they were skinny little things.

They all woke up about 9am and Uncle Joe and I made pancakes for them....then it was time for them to start going home. Parents arrived and the party was over.

I think they had a good time and I was glad to see Carly having a good time with new friends.

Now it will be Cassidy's turn December 11th.
