No doze and Redbull

There were 10 kids partyin' down tonight at my house...

10 kids 10 and under.

my 6 plus 1 niece and 3 nephews for a sleepover!

the Volume level was INSANE!

multiple Computers blasting YOUTUBE videos

(Boogie woogie Hedgehog)

Disney channel was blaring on 3 TV SCREENS,

Playing Rockband on the Wii in the Basement.


Finally it was bedtime

i drew the line at 11:30

and shut everything off to make everyone lay down.

(my sisters kids won't go to sleep if anything stimulating is on)

instantly there was giggling and silliness.


My almost 3 year old kept turning the TV back on as soon as i walked away.

so i removed him from the sleepover festivities.


i may have threatened everyone else

to lay down and go to sleep.


more giggles could be heard upstairs in the kitchen where i was killing time until they were all settled down.

around 12:32 am

there were distinct sounds of hopping around,

jumping on furniture.

so i Hollered down the stairs to lay down .


Someone started Tickling other people.


others were getting cranky and shushing everyone.


i snuck down the stairs armed with my camera to document the wonder.

and snagged this.

Photobucket

and this...

Photobucket

and finally this

but it lasted only as long as the picture took to take.

I swear it's like i gave them all

NoDoze and Red Bull

for dinner.


while i thought the hubs would be helping out with the insanity,

he hid out in the office playing cheesy video games.


once i (allegedly) started screaming and sending some of my own kids

to their rooms for riling everyone else up,

he stepped in.


at that point

i might have said,



"I thought you were helping?

WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?

HANGING OUT UPSTAIRS IN YOUR UNDERWEAR? "



that just got the kids Laughing again.

i couldn't resist a little cackling myself,


he had to laugh too.

then he told me to CHILL!


so i'm blogging.


it's 1:15 and they are talking.


STILL.


we have movie fun tomorrow.

my sister (their mom) is coming at 8:00am to get ready .

that's like 4 hours before i got up today.

(what? i've been sick!)

i have a feeling these kids are gonna be pretty tired tomorrow.

I know I'm gonna be tired tomorrow.

Have a Fabulous Friday!

Do me a FAVOR? remind me Sleepovers are NEVER a good idea!

1:52 and i'm ready to give up

Sleepovers are for the birds! Both for the person having it, and for the person whos kid is not sleeping the entire night and then come homes and is a monster the entire day! I see nothing good out of sleepovers except that the kids love them, I guess that should count for something, which is why we still have them, but I curse them everytime!

♥ The best part of sleep overs are when they're ASLEEP! :)

I am exhausted after reading that! I so remember those days though...and my parents yelling at us to all be quiet...except I don't think they were that nice about it! If it weren't so hot sleepover in tents in the backyard are always fun...that way they can just bug your neighbors...haha

I loved sleep overs as a kid! What a blast! Well...exhausting and a blast! I would have said the same thing to my husband, of course.
