Girls Just Want to Have Fun

Graci, Hope, Caroline & Olivia spent-the-night here Friday night. Yes, I know what you're thinking. Even their parents thought I was crazy.

Here's the girls making edible Halloween necklaces. They were so cute. They also made a Fall project and a Halloween project but I didn't get pictures of that. I was too busy making sure my table didn't get destroyed.

We also make pumpkin-shaped cupcakes. A couple of them thought it was hilarious to "ice" their face.

I'm pretty sure this isn't generally accepted behavior, but I let them go crazy climbing on the cat tree. It wasn't without incident. Caroline fell from the third tier and hit the TV trays on the way down. It was a pretty traumatic 3 minutes, but I swiftly took action and whipped an ice packet out of the freezer, applied to foot and saved the night.

The girls slept on a big pallet in the living room. Scratch that - they started out on a big pallet in the living room. Three ended up on the couch and one ended up in a chair. There were multiple combinations throughout the night. I told them they could stay up as late as they wanted to as long as they were quiet. You win major cool points when you do that and lets face it, 99% of the time, they don't make it past 10.

I really couldn't have asked for them to be any better. They were precious. We got up Saturday morning and sent Jay to Chick-Fil-A to get us breakfast. Then, they had one last thing they wanted to do before their parents picked them up at 10. They wanted to make "I love you" signs for Jay.
Are you kidding me??? Jay went to a football game Friday night and didn't even get home till after 10. I'm pretty sure I didn't see him anywhere while we were making projects and cooking cupcakes and playing and taking pictures. Is that a woman's fate in life? She does all the work and the man gets the "I love you" signs??? Here they are making their signs.

Except for Hope. This chick marches to her own drum. She informed the other girls that she wasn't making a sign. She just didn't feel like it.

And I'm pretty sure I'll never be the same - in a good way!

Don't I know it????

So glad you had a good time though. Now, would you like four more Friday night?

I usually tell any little girls who sleep over at my house the same thing about staying up all night too, and everyone always falls asleep except mine... Who usually informs me "I never went to sleep, and I saw the sun come up!" Of course she's always a sleepy grump the next day!

That's pretty much my fate - we do fun stuff all the time and all Dad has to do is walk in the door!
Thankfully he's a good one and deserves it.

I remember three little Wright kids that I would get ready for school, have snacks for them when they got home, talk to them about their day and generally love on that when their Daddy would come home would be on top of the world. It was DADDY!!DADDY!! DADDY!!!!!! Yes, it is a woman's lot. But that's okay because when you love them all including DADDY!! it doesn't matter.
