Poker Night Recap

Since Ares and Zeus were too busy trying to get attention, I handled all of the photography last Friday. Leave it to a female to get things done. Let me show you the highlights of the massive poker night extravaganza!

The mama made these great pool buckets for everyone. Each one was labeled with a person's name in gold letters. Inside each bucket was suntan lotion, a sudoku book, and a spray bottle.

No poker night would be complete without the token cheerleaders!

Everyone sat outside and played underneath the new umbrella. The mama's neighbor, Ingrid, brought over a light set to illuminate the evening's festivities.

Every time someone won a pot, the mama passed out her tiara for the person to wear. It did not matter whether you were a guy or a gal. Everyone had the chance to feel like a winner...and a princess!

As you can see, I wasn't lying when it came to "everyone".

I think it was a lot of fun for the mama and for everyone that came. While the mama may have won the pot for the evening, I enjoyed hiding out with the camera, taking pictures. Sometimes, it's better to lurk in the shadows than to be in the spotlight.

Hi Isis, we wondered where you had been hiding. You made a good job of the photos and the report on the party. Seems like everybody had a great time.
Maybe Zeus will let you come out of the shadows a little more often.

And very good reporting job, Isis. Tasha says she knows what you mean about the boys trying to get all the attention.

great job Isis!!!!

Zeus, our Dad Lady Person is otherwise known as Daddy or MeezerDad. Since Billy calls our mom the Mom Lady Person, he calls our Dad the Dad Lady Person.

P.S. Your comment was funny because my husband watched that movie "Cube" the other day - he finally turned it off because it just went ON and ON and ON!

Oh wow, now dat looked like fun Isis. Yoor a good fotografer. Did yoo get to wear da tiara afterwards? Thank yoor mom fur da kind words. Mom has come up wif lots of solutions to da prollems but convincing dad to do something, anything, rather than nothing but yell and complain is what takes da most work.
