Fear Factor Birthday Party

Well this weekend we had Miss Eliana's fear factor birthday to celebrate her turning 9. We had a blast grossing out the kids. There were two teams and we played around 8 really fun gross games. Andy had to join the boys team because they were one man short. I know he loved playing along...he is such a big kid. I had 2 teen age sisters just show up and offer to help me with anything I needed help with...I was thrilled. The weather was really nice and we just decorated up the garage. This was my 1st time to not have a really decorated up birthday party. Which was hard for me because I love to go all out with decorating. Saved me stress though...which was really cool because I have been tired lately. I must say my favorite was the sickening surprise at the very end. I took 2 diapers and melted tootsies rolls and chocolate pudding. The kids had to see who could lick the diaper the cleanest. We only had a few real gags...but no one threw up. Which thank God because I would most likely had ended up joining them. Well hope you can tell how much fun we had from the pictures. I hope to post some video as well.

Elias's 1st school play

Today we went to watch Elias's 1st school play at school. It was the little red hen...he was a mouse with cat ears....I guess they ran out of mouse ears. It was very funny and sweet to watch the little ones perform for us. I tried to take a little video but did not get much at all and I might have them out of order and the sound is all messed up...sorry. I still wanted to post to share. I plan to try to improve on taking video with my camera so I can post more short videos of the kids...enjoy.
