The snack fairey is yet to show, but I'm told she will be here soon.
Just before we got our reserved seats for the show, [Race to Witch Mountain] we took a behind the scenes your of the projection rooms. We got to see how movies are projected onto the silver screen. We saw how the movies get delivered in big orange cases in several small reels. They are then put together to make one huge reel. It then actually lays on its side and moved through the projector that way.
Anyway, we saw the movie. The girls sat still for about 3 minutes before they started to fidget.
After the movie, back to the house we went. The dinner menu was simple. Pizza. But not that domino's shit. We made our own mini pizzas. It was fun, interactive, and kept the kids occupied. The recipe is simple. English muffin, pizza sauce, cheese, and your topping of choice. We used pepperoni. 12 minutes in the oven, and BAM, instant pizza. The kids loved them.
Audrey opened her presents. It was a great mix of clothes and cool things to do.
Now, the next portion of the evening is still causing controversy to this day. We played an very very intense game of mouse trap. The girls split themselves up into 2 teams. Green and Blue. Now for those who don't know the premise of mouse trap. The game piece is a mouse. As you play, you built a large, elaborate, and utterly useless mouse trap. The idea is to trap your opponents mouse. Now an hour into the game and we were still trying to trap some mouses. I mean at one point kids were yelling, screaming, singing, and dancing, all to get a plastic mouse trapped by the over elaborate mouse trap. Because the game went on for so long, a clear winner was never determined.
Once the game ended, I cleaned it up, while Jenn doled out cake in the kitchen. As I was cleaning it all up, I realized that I must play this game with some friends, as a drinking game. I think it would rock. Look for a blog in the future to see how that turns out.
Cake and ice cream went more smoothly than I thought. Aside from the constant whining about who gets what color plate, it was uneventful.
So now its 11:10pm, and high school musical 3 is playing, and the ladies are spread out on the floor with comforters, pillows, stuffed animals, sleeping bags, and hopefully closed eyelids.
In the end, I think I bit off more than I could chew and its going rather well. I am learning from this whole experience. I have learned that sugar equals 93 octane gasoline in a highly tuned engine, alcohol is almost an necesity, and that sleep is over rated to a 7 year old.
