I am sure all of you are waiting on pins and needles for an update about the Seminary party. Today is your lucky day! Here for your reading pleasure are all of the juicy details.
I got off work on Saturday, ran to Target to get some junk food and then ran home to get ready. The house really didn't need cleaning since we have to keep it clean right now but I needed to be clean after a long day at work.
Around 6:30 my first guest arrives and he helps me decide how many and what kinds of pizza to order. In hindsight, I ordered too many so I've learned my lesson on that one. We ordered cheese, pepperoni, sausage and one with lots of stuff on it.
At 7:00 the rest of the crew starts to show up and we talk and laugh and just enjoy each other's company until the pizza arrives.
7:30 The pizza arrives and the students proceed to eat lots and lots of pizza and I was glad because I didn't want any leftovers. They drank pop and ate M&M's.
8:00 or so we start our first game: Celebrity which consists of each person writing down as many celebrity names as they can think of. After you put all the names in a big bowl, you divide teams and each team takes a turn, using words, trying to get everyone to guess who the celebrity is. It was HYSTERICAL! We played girls against boys and the boys were so funny. Telling me they were "not competitive" and everytime they got one right, leaping from their chairs to do a happy dance around the room. I was cracking up. So cute.
9:30 We finally decide to start watching a movie and end up watching Serenity which is one of my all time favorites.
I think everyone enjoyed themselves, especially the part where mom and dad came home with a cake and all my students sang Happy Birthday to me a few days early. That was great.
Love those kids.
