Ashtons 9th Birthday

This year for Ashton's 9th Birthday we decided to do something alittle different and EASY! My parents moved into a home with an amazing Theater so I thought why not put it to good use. I planned a movie birthday party...I set up a concession stand with plenty of popcorn, candy and cupcakes. We watch Ice Age: Continental Drift. We also served Pizza for dinner. 


 Fun Cupcakes that look like Popcorn, just yellow and white marshmallows on top.. Super easy and cute!




This party was simple, but the kids loved every minute.

Halloween Preschool Program

Preschool Halloween Program
 Andie is such a beautiful Pirate
 Andie and Tess
 Andie and her Best friend Mia
Andie and her teacher Miss Mindy

Undead 5K Run
 My little Zombies....they played the part well. We love this race because you choose whether you want to be a human or a zombie. The humans get a 2 min head start and then the zombies have to catch up to the humans. Tj and Luke were determined not to let me and Brooke catch up to them. Well....they didn't try hard enough because yes we did catch them and passed them!! Sorry boys!

 The Gang, ready to head to the race!!

 Me and the kids just trying to be scary!!!
 The kids had so much fun running the kids 1 mile race. Ashton didn't stop and this actually was Andies 1st real race, she was fantastic. I think she was a little nervous with some of the costumes and the zombie video they played, but in the end she said she wants to do it next year again. So, in my book that is a success.

I wanted this Halloween Season to be fun so I put together a Halloween Scavenger Hunt for the kids. I did it at night so the kids could use flashlights and make it kind of spooky. The followed the clues around the yard. They had to solve a riddle to find the next clue.






 The scavenger hunt ended with a treat and pumpkins to paint. The kids absolutely loved it and enjoyed running around in the dark.

Halloween Party 2012

This year Tj and I did our annual Halloween Party.The plan was to watch a scary movie outside, but the weather did not want to cooperate with us this year! So we had to carry on the fun into the house. It was such a great turn out and we had a blast playing games and eating food!!
 Jena and Rudy Larsen

 I'm not sure where the picture went of my decoration and the food, but it looked amazing!! This definitely be an every year party!!

Sue's 60th Birthday Party

We threw a Surprise Party for Sue, Tj's mom, I have never been able to throw a surprise party that actually stayed a surprise! This was the first time that it was a success. Sue had no idea what was going on, I for sure thought she would be mad at me, but everything turned out great. 
The picture above were words that my kids came up with that reminded them of their nana. The rocks below were for all the guests to write a note or a memory for Sue. 






 One of the fun ideas I came up with was to have everyone bring an item that reminded them of Sue. Everyone took a turn and stood up and shared their memory and item with everyone. It worked great and was more interactive and funny than just a video clip of pictures.




 All in all I'm happy to say that Sue's 29th (60th) Birthday was a total success! We love you Sue!

The Color Run

We did the Color Run with Jena and Rudy Larsen, it was such blast. It was a 5k full of color......this is a couple of pictures of us before the race.


 Here are the after pictures..........
