Inconceivable! "You keep saying that word? I do not think it means what you think it means."

Wow, I'm tired. Seven girls ages 9-11 for a birthday sleepover. Whew! We let them play outside until time to eat. Hubby grilled hamburgers and hotdogs. Then we had a little cake and ice cream. I then gave each girl a glow in the dark stick and a flash light (I found these great 4 packs of LED mini-flashlights at BJ's for $7.90). Then we just let them loose in the yard in the dark. They loved it. I did manage to snap a picture.
I had them show me their ghostly faces. After everyone had spent some energy, we got in PJ's and started a movie. Did anyone recognize the quote in the title? I know Lindsay did. We are so alike! Hubby's birthday is Wednesday so I made him open one of his gifts early...the movie The Princess Bride. Some couples have a song- we have a movie. And we can quote so much of it it's scary. The kids were absolutely taken with it and it quieted them down a lot. But they still didn't go to sleep until 11:30. My last threat (which actually worked) was that the next person I had to come talk to about being too loud was going to be the last one to get pancakes for breakfast. Silence...

This morning there were pancakes and bacon for breakfast (thank you hubby!) and everyone played for a while before leaving. The last child left about 10 minutes ago. Can you say, NAP?!!!
And since I can't go without one more quote....
"Wuv, true wuv that bwessed awangement, that dweam wivin a dweam."

Oh my gosh -- some of my favorite all-time sound bites come from that movie, including the one in your title and your closing quote! We also like, "Have fun storming the castle!" and "You killed my father, prepare to die!" and "Rodents of unusual size? No such thing." and "He's just *mostly* dead." And every once in a while, someone will accuse someone else of "blaving". LOL! Sounds like your group had a blast -- fun times!!! :)

I recognized the key words in the title of your post. Definitely one of the great films. Your party sounded fabulous. Get some well deserved kudos from your blog and then take a nap.

"my name in Enigo Montoya...." we love that movie! And it was an Excellent choice for that age group of girls! Your title is actually one of my many favorite lines, to the pain, the first is to never get involved in a land war in Asia..., luckily for me, I am not left handed either! I could go on. Glad every one had a good time.

I worked with a "Montoya" and we threw a few PB quotes around!!! Love the movie-
The party sounded like a 100% success! Did the girls like their pillow cases? Enjoy you Sunday!

One of my families favorite movies!
"As you wish" and so many more great lines. At least you are "nearly dead" after the party. Glad you didn't have to use the 'machine' on anyone ;)

The really funny part of your post was that when I was reading the last quote you mentioned...it was played in my head as the character voice that delivered it! Guess I've seen the Princess Bride a few too many times! Love that movie!
