I took 6 yo DD to see the movie "Tangled" Monday night. It was her first time to ever to see a movie theater. In the next town over you can see some of the older movies for $3 a ticket.

Valentine's Day Party!

I threw a Valentine's Day party and invited over some friends! They have 7 kids in their family, 6 girls and one boy, ages 5-13! So we had thirteen children from ages 2-15! Of course with 13 children and lots of food, fun, and games there are plenty of opportunities to take pictures! We had peanut butter and jelly sandwiches...cut into heart shapes, cherry Jello made in a heart shape mold, strawberry smoothies with bits of chocolate sprinkled on top, and pretzels...the kids said the pretzels were close to heart shaped! We played Valentine's Bingo and gave away prizes to the winner. (Then everyone that did not win got to pick something out of the bag when we were done with the game.) We also made candy necklaces, decorated bags, and exchanged Valentine's cards! The kids and I had a blast!
All of the kids loved that balloons! Surprisingly there was enough balloons that did not get popped at the end of the party that our friends were each able to take one home.

Zombie Face!

My 8 yo calls this his Zombie Face!

He used his Zombie Face to scare his sisters and they were so scared their hair stood up!

I think the smile on her face says she was having fun and was not scared! LOL!

They were actually having fun with the fan from the bounce around! Even baby girl thought it was fun!

Wild Haired Child!

Baby girl is totally going through a wild hair stage! It is so fine that it just sticks up and has a mind of its own!
I think her hair is having a party in this picture!
