What do Nine 13 Year Old Girls Sound Like?

I can't tell you because I can't hear a thing! My ears are bleeding!

Tonight my 13 year old daughter is having her long postponed birthday party. Her birthday was January 3rd but she has decision making issues. She wasn't sure what she wanted to do... a murder mystery (kept putting it off until too late to order materials, make invites etc...) a 50's themed sock hop, take a few friends to lunch and a movie - I finally forced her in to making a decision and she had a video scavenger hunt. They roamed the neighborhood getting people to do funny things while they video taped them. Future Ward Talent Show gold right here: Bishop doing the chicken dance in his pajamas (it was 7:15?).

Right now they are trying to get settled down so they can watch a movie but they are finding that hard. In fact, it just keeps getting louder and louder.

Worst part: My friend Kelly called and wanted to go to a movie (I had to lock myself in the laundry room so I could hear her phone call). I totally wanted to ditch these girls and go see 27 Dresses with her. Instead, I will go pop some more corn for the masses.

Sounds like fun - maybe I'll have Jay do that for her 13th. I told her we were done with bday parties last year. But, for some reason - she keeps talking about what she's doing for her 13th (which happens to be 4 months away).
Hope you don't need hearing aids - after being in beehives for a couple of years - I know the decibel of the noisy giggling, squealing and laughter can exceed the loudest scouts.

What a good mom you are! You deserve brownie points for sure.

Incidentally, I saw 27 Dresses last night and it met my expectations (which were: Fun Chick Flick that makes me giggle foolishly and smile warmly). Not a waste of theater money, but not one for another viewing. You'll like it.

Sounds like a fun party. Why wait for the ward talent show when we have you tube?
Our bishop would NEVER do that!
