5 kids under 4+ Two Parents-Husband+overnight stay=A really fun night!

Yes, you read that right. I'm watching 3 extra children, all under the age of four. Some would say I'm crazy...others would say that I must enjoy hurting myself...I say...I happen to love each and everyone of these kids...and they are actually easier to watch as a "herd" than as individual toddlers/preschoolers!

(Kaelyn was sneezing, but it's impossible to get all three to look cute!)
The big girls watched a movie in lieu of nap (so that they'd go to sleep at a reasonable hour...I'm sneaky) while the little ones slept.

Then we played with some playdough (it's the cool-aid playdough from months back! Still kicking! Amazing!)

I think I might need a bigger table!

Then some chalk drawings...because I'm not stupid, just slightly deranged...I was not about to let ten little hands have markers or crayons!

Then playtime in the basement while I cooked a "healthy" dinner of pizza, string cheese sticks, orange slices and rasins...while Ryan and I had a fresh grilled veggie pasta with shrimp!
Then bedtime!
The girls watching/playing during movies....
and I would have a picture of my little ones...
but Ryan got tired of Anna opening and closing the door
screaming "LIGHT, More LIGHT, LIGHT, MAMA, DADA" over and over again...
and did this...

yep...that's what my bonafied rocket scientist came up with out of desperation for sleep...
But don't worry, as soon as I'm sure the wee ones are FAST asleep...it'll come off...
it is a fire hazard after all.

See you guys on the flipside...probably with a thermos of the "real" coffee...none of that decaf stuff tomorrow!
