Slumber Party Smackdown 2007...

My little Boo-Bear had a slumber party for her 10th birthday. 10 is a big one in our house. You are double digits and you get your ID card issued to you. (An Air Force, Army etc thing) So we had to cel-e-brate in style! She decided to, God help us all, have a sleepover. Middle daughter said I should let her have as many girls as she wanted cause, her words..."Mom you only turn 10 once." Hmph. 12 girls people...12 came last night. First let me tell you about the drama leading up to it cause you aren't 10 if there is no drama.....

There is a friend/mortal enemy of my boo-bears I'll call The Terminator. Well the Terminator and Boo-Bear have not been on the best of terms this month. Boo-Bear found out that the Terminator has been gossiping about her behind her back and trying to get some of the girls to not be her friend. Typical 4th grade stuff. Well Boo-Bear has been dealing with this for the whole year and she decides she's had enough and she is happier without this friend in her life...at least for this week. She threw out the ultimate insult....no birthday invite. When the Terminator found out, let us just say it was on-like-popcorn! She decided to have her own sleepover the same night as Boo-Bears birthday bash and she invited some of the same people. Lines were drawn, boundaries were crossed, whispering ensued, bonds were strengthened, dirty looks were given, more whispering, the territories in the lunchroom were redone. It was dirty people, it was down and dirty. We will now and forevermore call this the SLUMBER PARTY SMACK DOWN 2007.
Peace was not restored until the parties started and the girls were each sent back to their own corners. Sigh. Next week, probably on a Tues. cause is a day that starts with T they will be BFF's again. All will be forgiven. Sticker books will be shared and My Spaces will be commented on.
On to our sleepover. 12 Girls showed up. 3 Large pizza's were eaten. 1 Large party size individual chip packs were consumed along with 30 juice boxes, 4 things of popcorn, chocolate, m&ms, 2 dozen eggs, a large box of pancake mix and 4 things of orange juice. I just closed the kitchen a half hour ago and told them please for the love of all that is holy and good in the world...please stop eating.
There were movies watched, toenails painted, much dancing and giggling, secrets told..sure to be repeated... and a DDR contest between my two teen helpers. :)
The girls went to sleep around 2am and woke up at 5:30am hungry. :) The party was rehashed and dubbed a success.
3 more hours til I can take a nap. heehee
good times.

Sounds like you all had a GRAND time!! Hopefully you had just as much fun bowling!! I'll be talking to you soon!

Hope you get your nap today!

Our rule was you get to invite the same # as your birthday year. 10 years=10 kids....it was all I could stand at one time, lol.

Glad you had successes to report.

Ah, yes I remember the drama of 4th grade.

I'll be checking in on your blog to see what's going on in your part of the world. I could not find any way to send you an e-mail.

Oh how I miss my girl hearing about a "Slumber party" (boys call them SLEEPOVERS...more MANLY!) Just be glad they were not MALE..my 11 yr old can eat about that much unassisted in one 12 hour day...and complain of being hungry a mere 15 mins after getting up from a full meal! Ahhh to be that skinny! Where are you in Korea? We are planning a trip there next year so our son can see where he was born...

Great, bigger than Days of our Lives...and much more intrigue (unless you count when Stefano is on ...but that's a whole different story!)Tracey
