How do I get two little girls to go to bed?

I've raised three little girls they're all teenagers now, my wife is on business and her sister had to leave the state on an emergency and left me with my two nieces, they're sweet little angels Madi and Alivia, how can I get them to go to bed? they're in my bed with me madi is 3 and Alivia is 5 madi has been talking about monsters non stop for about 10 minutes now, Alivia has to use the bathroom all the time and Alivia just informed me madi pees the bed. it's been 12 years since I've dealt with little girls. I'm out of my mind crazy right now.
I've had them for two hours and I've been caught up on ponies, Madi's puppy, Alivia's obsession with Taylor swift songs and how they miss their aunt Jennifer. I need them to go to bed.

Is in the bed with you the only place for them to sleep? If so, you're probably going to be stuck hearing their jibber jabber until the lights, TV, etc. are all off and you make it clear it's time to be quiet and go to sleep. Even then the talking might still carry on awhile, as they're not in their usual place and are wound up. If there's somewhere else for them to sleep, put them there, in separate beds if possible. Make sure they have all they need - extra blankets, toy, nightlight, etc. so there's no excuses and be firm. If they get out of bed, take them right back. You might have to bribe them a little. :) Like, You have to be good and go to sleep if you want to make cupcakes tomorrow (just for example) like we planned. Source: daughter who turns 5 tomorrow.

Give them both a strong cup of chamomile tea (not black tea). Then put them into bed and sit in a chair next to them. Be sure they are all covered up and warm and maybe even add an extra blanket to warm them up and encourage sleep. Dim the lights and read them a boring bedtime story or tell them long boring stories and then they should go to sleep just fine. They just want to feel safe. Good luck.
