Things to do at a party........

If your child has ever attended a party at my house, you probably shouldn't read this.....haha. Just kidding. I just thought I'd mention some of the shenanigans that have gone on at my house during the many parties we've hosted with an abundance of teenagers. Here's a sampling:

- whipped cream "shots"..can't remember which kid introduced this one, but the idea is that you squirt whipped cream on the back of your hand then hit the bottom of your hand with your other fist and try to get the whipped cream to shoot up in the air and catch it with your mouth. Here's a hint: It doesn't work. EVER. What it does is create a very sticky floor.
- covered an entire sliding glass door with writings (some of them NOT g-rated), thankfully, in window marker
- tossed a pillow pet into a chandelier
- spun the cupcake "tree" so violently that cupcakes actually went flying around the room
- filled each other's mouths with carbonated water to see who could handle the most
- purchased dry ice (because they were newly 18) and made dry ice "bombs" with water bottles
- filled each other's mouths with whipped cream
- stolen the "kids at play" green plastic "child" sign from the neighborhood streets and placed it atop a mailbox and/or several cars
- thrown candy/cereal/nuts at each other
- run in circles through the house, including the kitchen where a piping hot pizza was being removed from the oven (gasp! What if they got burned? Jeff says "survival of the fittest...that'll teach 'em")
- slept three or four to a bed - sideways
- stayed up all night (always)
- and likely countless other things that happened when I went to bed, whether it was 1 a.m. or 5 a.m. And I don't really want to know about those things..........
