Crazy Half Day!

Today the children had a "Crazy Wacky Hair Half Day!"  They both wanted something really crazy, and this was the end result.  As you can see they were both thrilled!! :)

Princess Presto to the Rescue!!

Amelia celebrated her 5th Birthday last week with a very special Super Hero Birthday Party!  She loved being Princess Presto from Super Why

She invited all her friends with a rhyming request:

Calling all “superheroes”! The time has come.
It’s Amelia’s 5th Birthday. Let’s have some fun!
We’ll rescue the world and save the day.
After we’re done, we’ll eat lunch and play!

When the children arrived we made superhero capes cut out of black, pastic tablecloth, and adorned them with large, sticky-backed felt stars and sticky-backed felt letters (each child had the first letter of their name). 
Then we tested the superheroes abilities with a relay race.  For lunch the children ate pizza and washed it down with a fizzy "Super Hero Power Drink" (sprite with pop rock candy!)  I attempted to make a cake with a recipe that I had not tried before, and it was a disaster, so last minute, Brian bought a cake at the store, and saved the day! (what an awesome superhero dad!!)
Amelia loved playing with her friends and when asked what part she like best, she said, "Everything!"
