Our first attempt at throwing a teenage party was a success. Everyone who was invited came and they had a great time. We are absolutely loving the basement TV room. It was the perfect place for them to hang out. They had pizza and played games. Some of the kids who were here were school friends of Josh I had never met before, so it was nice to get a chance to gt to know them a bit. I'm really glad we had the party. We're not generally big party throwers but I'm trying to make an effort to have people over more, so this was a big step in that direction. It was good.
Tonight we're actually having another party over here! We always do an Amazing Race premiere and finale party with two families we're close friends with. We usually do it at one of their houses but they wanted to try it in our new basement room so we're doing it here this time.
They're coming in a it an hour, which is fine except that we just had a kitchen mishap and our house stinks at the moment! We made dinner for a sick neighbor this evening and Shawn accidentally left a plastic ladle on a hot burner. Our house now smells like burnt plastic. Like, really bad. We're desperately trying to air it our before people show up in an hour. That is exactly the kind of thing that would happen to us when we attempt to throw a party, lol.
So now I'm off to go brave the stinky kitchen and make fruit dip for the party. Yay for parties, boo for stinky kitchen! :)
