I made it! I'm still alive!

So, I made it through the party. Let me tell you, those girls have more energy and talk louder than anyone I know! They just didn't stop, not once. Yeah, not even to sleep! Two of them did crash out from 2:30-6:30, but the other two didn't stop at all!

Let me suggest that tie dying shirts should NOT, I repeat, NOT be done by crazy sugared up 13 year old girls. There was dye flying everywhere! And I had just had the carpets cleaned! But, the shirts were a major success. They came out really cool and the girls loved them.

As for the sundaes, um yeah. I didn't put out the wipe cream. Although I warned them that when giving a written list of demands, next time they better be spelled correctly or they'll get what they ask for.

Chubby bunny! OMG! This was SO funny. I have some pics that I'll have to upload. They were stuffing those marshmallows in there. And drooling and spitting them out. Brought back some crazy memories.

They did a lot of hopping in and out of the hot tub. And they even jumped in the 60 degree pool! Crazy girls.

They also played Dance, Dance Revolution. I don't know how these kids get so coordinated. I couldn't pass one level, but they just kept going and going.

We gave Carissa a digital camera for her birthday and they had TONS of fun with that. Thank God it was still the innocent fun, not the myspace teen porn type of fun.

I don't know if they made prank calls. As long as they did it from their cell phones, that's fine with me. I just didn't want angry people calling my house back because they didn't block the caller ID. One day I'll have to share some of my best prank calls (you remember those days Lisa)!

Unfortunately, the little ones didn't sleep. There was too much excitement in the house. They went down around 10:00 and then were fitful until 5:00 when they decided to wake for the day.
So I was very tired last night. Add to that the fact that one of the parents was mad that his daughter missed church, so he didn't pick her up. At all. She called and called and he wouldn't answer. Finally at 5:00 last night (they were supposed to leave between 10:00 and 11:00) he called and told her to have me bring her home. Real nice!

What a jack leg!! That poor girl, to grow up with such a tyrannical putz. Yuck.
Anyhoooo~ sounds like y'all (they) had a blast (exhaustive game of make mommy crazy).

Oh my God, what an arsehole. Sounds like he's the one that needs more church. That poor kid.
Sounds like a fab night. yOu are such an amazingly cool mummy aren't you Miss Lori. Love it. :D

holly said...

no, now i think you all have this wrong. when i think "wwjd?" i think yeah, he'd totally *not* love the daughter unconditionally, and expect her to make her own way home, AND get there before church starts. in fact, she should walk to church with no shoes. in the snow. isn't that like, straight out of luke or something?

okay, i'll stop blaspheming. he is truly not a wonderful man.

i think *you* really missed an opportunity to charge rent! or at the very least ask for a ransom!!! you should call me next time. i'm full of helpful solutions.

That poor girl...I could never do one of my kids that way...what an a=hole...your daughter is lucky to have such a terrific Mom....sounds like they had a blast and she will always remember you allowing her to do have the fun sleep over party.
You rock!

Rachel said...

I like your background. I think it's purty! Thanks for your sweet comments, and for visiting!!

Maybe you should send the immature a..hole Dad some "wipe" cream.

mielikki said...

that dad sounds like a real treasure, one that should be buried. . .
glad you survived the antic's! Now go catch up on some sleep!

Jules said...

What an ass that dad is!!

You deserve a trophy after a party like that! You are such a cool Mom!

Mary Alice said...

5:00??? I think I would have called the police and had them do a courtesy check on the parents around 4:00 if they weren't answering their phone.

Susan said...

What an asshole. That poor kid must have been so embarrassed.

Other than that, sounds like my kind of party!

Troy said...

You had me at the tye dying. You're an awesome mom.

But what a prick that kid's dad is! One of my daughter's friends was picked up around 11:30 am and the first thing the mom did was check to see if the kid had brushed her teeth.

Yep, some parents are real party animals.

Bubblewench said...

jack.ass.hat. That blows my mind he did that!!

I'm so glad you all had a great time! Hope you snuck a nap in the next day!

Megan@SortaCrunchy said...

Lori - I already knew you were a super cool rock star mom, but the tie dying takes the cake! I bet Carissa had a ball.

I cannot BELIEVE that dad. Yeah, way to teach your daughter a great lesson on the peace and grace of Christ. Sheesh.
