Last night we had Ryan's annual Halloween/Birthday party. We had about 23 kids (that's counting two babies) and 11 adults, so it was a pretty full house.
And I had a ball!
For the first time in a long time, I actually dressed up. I sprayed my hair black (I hated the texture, but loved the color!), put on some sparkly makeup (I NEVER wear makeup) and donned my little purple witch hat. Check out the picture...I looked pretty hot! lol! I was told by several people that my hair looked really good that color. I don't think I would have the nerve to permanently dye it black, though.
There was lots of good food and great company. The kids played games, hit a pinata, bobbed for apples, and kind of just hung out. There were six little kids (between five and eight) who just ran around outside in the dark thinking they were hot shit. It was great. One of them (my friends grandson) came up to me and told me it was the best party he had ever been to.
Yeah, that was awesome.
I was a little taken aback by a couple of people, though. One parent called for directions and to make sure the party was going to have adult supervision, and when I said yes, she asked if her daughter could come too. What could I say? I said yes, and then she told me the daughter was 7. Um, it's a party for a 15 year old boy, and you want your young daughter to come? Is it just me or does that sound a little ballsy to you? I honestly didn't know what to say, so I said sure, send her along. Turns out, Brandi knew the girl from school, so it worked out, but really. I would never ask such a thing.
Then, the girl who lives behind us came over early, and asked if two of her friends could come, too. Kids I didn't know. Kasi said she met them and they were nice, so I told her to ask Ryan since it was his party. Again, is it just me, or was that ballsy? Turns out that those three girls got ticked when they didn't win the costume contest prizes, so they kind of yelled at Junior and went home. I told Kasi never to invite them to anything else, ever again.
But all in all, it was a great night.
