girls (and guys) night out!

Last night we had 16 kids in our house.  13 of them were age 4 and under.  And the best part - we weren't even there.

Our "Home Designers" class at our church had a party last night and our home was "kid haven."  Three amazing girls from our church came over to babysit and did an outstanding job!  I was sure I'd come home to a house full of chaos and broken toys, but much to my surprise, when I walked in at 10:00, all 16 kids were in the living room with a movie on.  How did they do that?!  And the house looked very decent and there were no broken toys.  Kudos to Liz, Nicole and Lindsey!  You guys are INCREDIBLE!

And us parents got to enjoy an awesome evening at the Philips household.  You'll have to check out The Sneaky Mama's blog, complete with pictures.  We were pretty much separated guys/girls the whole night, which was great and allowed for some superb conversations!  It started with a delicious cheese fondue for us all.  Then the guys went bowling while we pampered ourselves.  My friend, Kristin, gave me a fabulous foot massage and Carrie massaged my head!  What servants!  And we ended the evening with a scrumptious chocolate fondue.  The time with the girls was so much fun.  We really need to do this more often.  Thank you, Jessica, for pulling together a super fun party!  And thanks to Julie too for helping her in the kitchen!

So... who's planning the next girls night out?

Phew! I'm so glad to hear that your house was still standing when you got home! Thanks for being so willing to host the kids!
