Invasion of the vampire teens

With the holidays , my home has once again become joyfully invaded by teenagers.

The pics are of Caitlin and my niece Holley, who spends all school vacations with us.

I love having a housefull of kids.

Absolutely ANYTHING can happen ...

because they have a friend

 who has a boyfriend

who has a car

 and it's Friday night!

what I can't figure out is how they can stay up all night

and sleep the sleep of the innocent,

 sprawled all over every couch and chair in the living room,

deaf to the sounds of every day life

and people stepping over them.

They never slept that good when they were babies!

I am a good cook...

I also can't figure why me calling them to eat a lovingly prepared meal doen't affect them,

but if I mention ordering pizza, they knock me down coming at a dead run!

    The girls are beautiful. I know what you mean about meals though. I am also a good cook. But God help me if I mention pizza, Taco Bell, the real Mexican fare, or even the gyro place Uptown. I can't compete with them.

I just love this story.  This is like the story of my life.  I have four great kids and there is nothing better than the sounds of a houseful of teenagers having fun.  That is music to my ears.  I love being a mother more than anything.
