My Girls' Night

Last night Mike and Dallin went to their first Fathers and Sons Campout with the ward.  I am assuming they are having fun.  I have not heard otherwise and they are not yet home.  I know Dallin was sure excited when they left!  Anyway, so the girls and I had a night at home last night.  I let each girl pick a movie and we went to the store to get treats.  Whenever I justify eating a whole lotta crap, I tend to go overboard.  Last night was no exception.  I bought two packages of Oreos and the girls each picked a candy bar.  Then we came home and popped popcorn.  I am proud to say that I only ate about 6 Oreos, which to a normal person is probably a LOT.  But, for someone who can easily down an entire package in one evening, paying no attention to the raging pain my stomach may or may not be feeling, that is actually pretty good.  I also had a box of Sour Patch Kids and some popcorn.  Crap, I tell you!

However, it was a lot of fun.  The girls picked movies from our collection that I hadn't watched in a really long time.  Claire went first and she picked Madagascar.  This is a great movie.  I wasn't sure if I would make it through all three, but I at least made it through that one.  Then it was Emma's turn and she picked one of my favorites: Enchanted.  If you have not seen this one, SEE IT!  It is one of the best Disney movies ever.  I just love it!!  Of course I made it through that one, but alas, Emma did not.  So, once it was done, I took her upstairs and Claire sleepily followed me.  It was 11:00 at this time and I was very tempted to go to bed too.  But, Audrey gave me a guilt trip because "nobody EVER stays up to watch HER movie."  So, I groggily headed back downstairs to join her.  Her movie was also a favorite: Ghostbusters.  We giggled our way through all the classic lines that we often quote and loved the scene with Mr. Staypuft.  It was a nice night.  Then, we both headed to bed with Audrey joining me in mine for the night.  She usually will take any opportunity to sleep in my bed since she says it is more comfortable than hers.  Mike disagrees.  I was happy to have her as it is not always fun to sleep alone.  I can't wait to find out if my boys had as much fun as we girls did!
