Each darling daughter was allowed to invite 4 sweet friends.
Count em. That equals 10 partying people. Then we had a crasher. Ha. At a kids Christmas Party! Note to self, that one is going to be trouble.
So now the head count is 11 squealing, yelling, giggling, opinionated little beings in my home.
That’s a ridiculous number of little people in a home.
Now I know this was a party.
I know I gave them too much sugar.
But you can’t have a party without pop and candy!
But good grief those 11 little girls were loud!
I didn’t know that even though I was “the Hero” when I purchased Jim Carrey’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas (cause it was rented out of every stinkin store in the city) I was wasting my money. They lasted about half an hour with that flick. Apparently the most exciting part was the preview for ET! You have not heard girls SCREAM until that cute little alien face has popped up on your 52 inch Sony. Ha ha.
I learned that despite your Husbands math of 2-3 pieces of pizza per girl. Equaling 6 pizzas, you will only need 3. Huh? Oh yes, forgot to factor in the loads of chips and candy. Duh.
I now know I should always have a towel at hand. you know, real close by like. For when hyper girl knocks over her third cup of lemonade.
I am proud to say I made it through with a smile on my face and just a twinge of a headache.
I am thrilled that although my girls are tired, they had a great time. All the work was worth it for those smiling faces and huge belly laughs.
I hope my girls remember this, our second annual Christmas Party for their friends fondly.
I hope they always want to have parties together!
