It was ALL.ABOUT.PLAY at our house yesterday afternoon - Marlee and Mary Alice came over to play again and I let them do things....
well, you'll see!
Harmless fun playing with Mardis Gras beads, that is until someone starts swinging them around like a laso and slices someones face - that DID NOT happen!!!! Though without proper supervision It could have!!!!
Then, I cleared out my den, lamps, picture frames and all and let the girls turn the bounce house upside down and dive from the sofa on top.
I know -- normally
furniture-jumping is off limits,
but life is short, right?
You know as a child you DREAMED of doing this!!!!
Emma Claire is under there somewhere
Both boys were downstairs asleep - Wilson in his bed and Henderson in a pack-n-play in Wilson's closet - this enabled the girls to have full-run of the upstairs without me saying "keep it down" or "don't get too excited girls!!" Because that sure isn't fun.
When I had heard - "I'm not getting to go first EVER"
"They're not letting me have a turn"
"She jumped too quick and almost landed right on my head" about 37 times, I finally brought out the brownie mix - now there were some laughs and good times!!!! I had 3 super duper helpers who maybe, just maybe, had a little brownie mix for snack!!!! SSSSHHHH don't tell!
Do you think they liked it? But hey, who doesn't? Yellow cake mix or brownie mix - you can't go wrong - except for the raw eggs of course, but I think everyone survived!
Sorry for the naked shot of Wilson in the background, but it just cracks (no pun intended) me up! He LOVES to run around naked!!!
Thanks Marlee and Mary Alice for a super duper magnificent playdate!!!!!
Come back anytime!!!!
