incoherent rambling...

as I type I am being bombarded on all sounds by LOUD noises...  

you see, I decided that my daughter (whose 7th birthday was last week) could have a small party.  "small" being the operative word - something not "over the top"

I am QUEEN of "over the top" however... we've done "diva" parties in the past, tea parties, pirate treasure hunts and Harry Potter parties where I made 10 Quidditch Robes.

So this party... just a little pizza, candy, popcorn, soda and watching HSM 3...  

Of course, while shopping I found 11 pair of HSM pajamas on clearance for 2 and 3 bucks...  hey, that's a good alternative to a treat bag right...  and those cute clearance purses for $1...  

I stopped there - no more junk.  I even went "easy" on the cake - I just made cupcakes and orange icing - they can "slam dunk" it into the icing  just like Troy Bolton... or not... I'm not sure if anyone is going to want any cupcakes after all the licorice, jellybeans, and pretzels...

But I am currently realizing that while my idea of watching a movie may be peaceful and quiet - 12 little girls do not share my opinion...  one of them has already  run to the bathroom (too many jellybeans?) and another is laughing so hard she just said "you're making me pee"  -  which got my attention right away because she's sitting on my couch.  The others are insisting on a "password" to get past their outstretched legs (please, let the puker and the pee-er by without a password).

When they're not being loud yelling over the dialogue, they are singing along with the songs...  and I'm not complaining - but I'm willing to bet that none of these 5-7 year olds have ever taken voice lessons!

My youngest turns 5 on Tuesday...  I think I'll just invite along one friend and go to Wendy's - I think a Frosty is thick enough to hold up a candle right?

Hey-your daughter's seventh birthday party sounds just like what I want to do for my 25th!

Oh, yikes! This reminds me of why we don't do kid parties. Also, hey, I'm going to be in Utah a MONTH from now--not this weekend. I don't know how far you are from Provo but if you are close enough, I would love to meet you!

What a smokin deal on those pajamas!!!

I can't blame them for being noisy, first of all they're girls, vying to be center of attention. And second HM3 is kinda slower than the others! ;)

So you should be a party planner for a job!

I'm exhausted just READING all that you did. Way to show up the rest of us! Hee hee.

Sounds like a fun party. I can't imagine that many girls being actually quiet during a movie though especially with that cute Troy dancing and singing all the time.

Hmmm, seems to me that "simple" isn't part of your vocabulary, but I bet your children love you and think they have the best parties ever!
