Science Fair 2013

Kennedi wanted to participate in the Science Fair this year, which is optional unless you're in the 5th grade.  After looking on Pinterest for days......we decided to do it on sugar crystals.  She had a good time putting the project together, and even though I had the flu, I had fun helping her!

Her board turned out super cute, and if it was judged on looks alone, she would have taken the  grand prize!!! ;)

She won "Honorable Mention", which is the 2nd best, right under "Best in Show"..........she was THRILLED!!

Spiderman Birthday Party

Dax wanted a 
Spiderman Birthday Party 
(current obsession), and he was so exited to have a "friend party"!!

I made these invitations on photoshop......

I didn't go all out for this party, because well, they're 3-4 years old, but Dax kept saying "Wow, this is AMAZING!" , so if he was happy, I was happy!
How lucky is this little boy?!?  These are all of his best friends and they all live on this street!!

We played a few games.......of course there was PIN THE SPIDERMAN ON THE WEB, Brody had to play too!!
And then they got to "practice" their WEBSLINGING skills.  This game was a blast for them......they had to try to  hit the Green Goblin with a can of Silly String, which for these little guys, wasn't as easy as it sounds.  I think Shane got the worst of it!!

Kenna was a big helper, keeping track of everything on her Ipad (of what, I'm not sure), and Brody thought he was just one of the big kids (Bronse slept through all the fun).

Happy New Year!!!

Shane and I decided it was probably our turn to host a big NEW YEARS bash.  

We had 6 couples over and had a blast eating, chatting, playing games, and laughing!!!

At the last minute {literally}, I decided I should probably decorate for the shin dig.

I headed down to the local Family Dollar, and lucky me, all their Christmas decor was 50% off, SCORE!!  I grabbed some gold and silver bulb, a gold christmas tree, gold and silver tinsel, and a gold table runner.....and that only came to $11!!

Then, I picked up some balloons from the pharmacy, and was good to go!

I made red velvet cake pops, which are always a hit, and then some YUMMY Tortellini Skewers, you can find the recipe HERE.  I made all the tags on photoshop.

I hope everyone has a great 2013!!!
