Chuck E Cheese and other fun things

So my sister in law and her kids came for the weekend, and we had a great time! On Saturday we went to this wonderfully tasty Italian restaurant and sis in law and I drank WAY too much wine, to the point where roomie had to drive us all home hee! Princess was besides herself with joy because her cousins were here. That night when we got home, it started to rain, then the temperature fell FAST, and then it was sleeting with high winds in the wee hours of the morning. I know this because I couldn't sleep and was up to hear all the commotion. Lots of sleepless nights lately, money is tight right after the holidays (and childs birthday) and I tend to obsess. By the morning, the morning of Chuck E Cheese, there was quite a bit of snow on the ground with this oh so lovely layer of ice under it all, and the locks on the cars were frozen. My niece climbed through the back of sis in laws suv and opened it from the inside, by kicking at the door while sis in law pulled on the outside. I was wondering how many kids would show, 14 did. 14 kids at Chuck E Cheese, thank god this is a 5 year old party and parents tend to stay with their kids at that age! Princess was SO happy to see everyone there, and to see Chuckie! She and a whole bunch of her friends stood at the edge of the stage (they have an animatron music show for those of you who are not part of the Chuck E fan club hee) yelling Chuckie!!!! And one of her friends jumped on stage.... I pictured them 15 years from now with lighters in their hands lol!!!! I ordered a Spiderman cake for Princess, yes she still has the same obsession. Then after the party all the kids got free tokens (part of the party package) and went to town playing games and generally running around like mad things. It's a good thing that the party was at 11, can you imagine sugaring them all up then sending them home in the afternoon "I am too old to nap but I sure do need one" time???? I think the other parents were grateful! Then we all went home and spent a quiet time at home the rest of the day.....Ok the adults were pooped and lounging on the couches and the kids were up in Princesses room generally behaving yet again like mad things, but the cool thing was we were downstairs and they....they were upstairs and away from us! There are pluses to having older cousins around let me tell you! The next day we went to see The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe. I read the books growing up and loved them, and thought that this was a very good screen adaptation of it!! I hope they make more of the books it was that good!!! Then sis in law and Princess cousins had to go back home, sad day for all of us as we had a BLAST!!! There are some weekends that seem magical and like nothing could go wrong, this was one of them. Hectic, and filled with lots of screaming kids at the party, and I am so glad I have Princess to experience it all!
There now, I told you guys you would be jealous, see it WAS the best weekend :-)
