16th Birthday Dance

The dance took place last night. I love most of Emma's friends...seriously awesome teenagers. One harrassed me all night..trying to get me to buy birdfeeders from him..he is making and selling them to fund his trip to Belize to build a school. Hooligan. lol. 4 stayed late to help me clean up the hall, one proposed to me and they all managed to have a great time without drugs or alcohol. Then there was the other crowd..the ones who werent invited and decided to show up anyway. I kicked a few out when I saw the beer...kicked a few more out who were noticably drunk and disorderly and the rest I fought all night to not let in. I was spit on and never heard so many swear words in my life. I had to dodge a few beer bottles at one point times. At least 20 uninvited showed up. I would have let them come in BUT they were drunk and/or stoned and were just plain outside they stayed, in frigid weather..I think it was -15 with the windchill...for 3 hours! One got in and stole the fire extinguisher ($100 for me to pay) but we later found it, empty (only $20 to refill) behind the building where he had also beat out the palings on the fence. Anyway, when all was said and done it was a pretty decent night...Em had fun, the dj was great, the food was almost all eaten and I got to bed at a decent time. Here are a few pics...there are more on facebook.

And it looks like the kids in the photos all wore theme colours!

Awesome! What a great time. Sorry to hear about the crashers. Just stupid.

Sounds like a fun party. Bummer about the idiots though.
