we then played games,
hot potato casuse the scavenger hun was vetoed by the rain

i made everyone make a t shirt

they were like the starter crew, cause the rest came later

this my friends is katie...
this is lily's BFF
since pre school..
and if you think lily is bossy, katie is lil X 50!!!!!!!!!!!
so funny!!
the rain stopped long enough for the egg race....
after this was the part where i made dinner...
i fed everyone and then put more hotdogs ont he grill
apparently they dont take that long when the grill is hot
um yeah, no one had seconds
burger kings flame broiled had nothing on these dogs...
they looked like little peices of black chalk..
cut me a break here people
i was solo...feeding like 17 kids
drinks, napkins, ketchup, more drinks
just thinking of it makes me need adavant

ok and here is the slumber crew!!!!
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...they were so amped!!!
that was the last picture of the evening...
no one slept,
everyone was hungry for snacks at different times
not one of them wanted to watch the same movie
or lay in the same spot
and there were tears and fights over who would lay nest to lil
so finally at one
i made everyone stand against the living room wall....
like freakin boot camp
and i laid there blankets down,
put i carly on
and lights out
i fell asleep sitting up on the couch!!
then i hear a little voice and feel this little cold finger...
miss jen...'
we are up
i am like, ok
my eyes literally were still closed like ten minutes into the morning bathroom trip..
i am pretty sure i fell back to sleep on the toilet
so i showered real quick and made breakfast..
of course

lily's first birthday bash/slumber party

i am gonna post pictures later...i have to find the cord for my camera...and wait til you see them
what a day
this was my shirt
i made t shirts for lilys friends...they said lily's 7th birthday bash...
then they all signed them and had their names on them...I had twin boys,
i figured it would be the only way i could keep track of the names..
so it 3:30
we had,
maggie 1..she lives down the street
megan, she lives next door
chris and steven, the twins,
i may be forgetting someone...
but they trickled in, the fun began...lmao

we played hot potatoe
to the beatles..
kids ..
tyler turned to me and said, even if i lose, i still get a prize right...
and they all needed something every second they were here
shit got real hectic when after the hot dog and french fry lunch
and in between clean up and cake
ben had a melt down when mark and stephen got into a real heated discussion about the woodland hills redistricting
ben is autistic
and is VERY sensitive
remember when rainman got really upset and started screaming
that went down in the dining room
he just kept repeating,
this is just not going to work
this is just not going to work
and started crying
lily and katie actually know how to settle him
i was amazed...he doesnt make eye contact with anyone ...but lil and kate
so freaking cute

so..we did hot potatoe and egg
the rain ruined my scavenger hunt
i did pictures of a picture of the flowers..but i cut them up and they had to put them together..then figure out where to go
dam that was out
they liked just playing and i was acutally sad the boys left
they got into jared and collins room, found all the guns and were in there glory

and this is where i am at now...

we have switched rooms 85 times,
there has been actual tears shed...
fights over who is going to sleep next to lily
why wont she sleep by me
i am hungry
i am thirsty
i don t to watch this movie...
so ...i let them kind of go for a while...i had kate and the two maggies, lily, abby, emily..all of them
all set up and one by one
they go upstairs
then they need another drink
another snack
then another fight
more blankets

so finally
we are all in the living room
good night
i am over it
i love that she is happy,
althought i had to deal with the lily drama of
and then two minutes later...she loves me and everything ...

happy birthday lil
first and last slumber party
