It's back to the daily grind. I'd like school a lot more if my friends were in my class. It's 7th grade for me, 6th for JJ, and 4th for Jess. Jess is the lucky one, 4th grade is so easy!

This is weird, I don't have anything else to say. Chalk it up to school blues, I guess. Has anyone else started school yet?

Slumber Party Fashion Show

None of my sisters or friends are real fashion divas or models, though Sam thinks she is just the most stylish thing that ever walked the earth. But anyway, here are the pictures from our PJ Fashion Show.

Jessica "Jess"

Jocelyn "JJ"

Karson "Kit"


Elinor "Nellie"

Samantha "Sam"


Mother and Casey got a kick out of out pictures, saying we all look so much more huggable and sweet than we normally do. Good thing they weren't at out party!

Slumber Party!

The party is over, the only thing I want to do right now is go to sleep. I'm about to hit sugar crash mode. Only Nellie and Kit are still overly wired. Gillian has already fallen asleep. Now that you know how it ends, I'll start at the beginning.

Jocelyn arrived first with more candy than is necessary at Halloween! Peanut Butter cups, M&M's, gummies, chocolate bars, rock candy, suckers. . . You get the idea. I think her parents robbed a candy store! Anyways, we made ourselves in charge of putting it into bowls. And eating it! Jess showed up 15 minutes later with her dad. Mother made us promise not to burn the house down or leave the house.
"But if the house burn down, can we leave then?" I asked.
Mother gave me her look usual look, the one reserved for me that says "Why?" is the most desperate way. I know I'm her favorite. She and Casey left and the party began.

Liz and Samantha brought all the food down to the basement and made themselves in charge of getting drinks. For the best since some of us are kinda, sorta, really clumsy. There was regular pizza, pizza rolls, and Nellie's pizza/taco creations which are more disgusting than good but edible. For dessert there was candy (of course), ice cream cones, cookies, and brownies. Jess' dad makes the best brownies in the world. They have peanut butter in them.

After all the food, watching a movie sounded like the best idea. But all the food made us sleepy!
We had to do something fast. Samantha and Liz got out the pillows and crashed the party.
It was insane! Stuffed animals, pillows, monkeys flying through the air. Gillian tripped and knocked Jocelyn down, who in turn bumped into me.
Samantha refused to quit and kept bonking Kit on the head. Gillian started yelling for everyone to settle down before we got hurt. Since Gillian is usually so quiet, we all heeded her at once.

We thusly resumed our movie and ate some more. At about midnight, everyone started to fall asleep. I snuck out and snapped this picture of JJ:
How she can breathe is a miracle to me. Not to mention she forgot to take her glasses off. I know she goes through more pairs that way.

Tomorrow I will post pictures of our PJ Fashion Show.

Almost Party Time!

JJ and Jess should be arriving soon for the biggest sleepover in history! Well, my history anyway. Mother is dropping the babies off at Grandma's house right now. Liz and Nellie are making pizza. Kit and Gillian are taking down all the blankets and pillows they can find to the basement. I decided we are going to watch 102 Dalmatians. I think it's Disney, but I don't really care 'cause it's one of my favorites, as far as kid's movies go anyway.

I hear the doorbell, better go. JJ said she would bring candy. I can't wait to see what kind!

Where's JJ?

Here is total proof that it is too hot and nothing happens. I found a picture from the 4th of JJ that I forgot about. And since I haven't had anything else to post in awhile, here it is:
Yup, summer has officially become too long. On the plus side, Jess is back from Hawaii. Negative side, she didn't bring me anything. Oh, well, I didn't ask for anything anyway. Her dad got sunburned pretty bad. He has the most hilarious burn pattern. Goes great with his red hair.

The J's and I are planning a huge slumber party before school starts again. We decided it will be at my house. The best part? Mother and Jess' dad are going out so there will be NO parental supervision! Yee Ha! However Elizabeth will be there, BUT Samantha is also coming over and as soon as they pop in one of those Twilight movies we will never see them. So it will be Jess, Jocelyn, Kit, Nellie, Gillian and myself for the night. Anyone have any suggestions on what we should do? The girls want to watch a movie, but it has to be Disney because of Jess and my younger sisters. We've never had this big of a sleepover before. I can't wait!
