So the other night my sister calls me up and asks if i can watch her kids so her and Nate can go out with some friends. Sure I say. So the wheels start turning and we decide to turn out Living room into a movie theater. The boys decided we should show UP, so we got thinking of the theme and decided we would need some balloons. I will spare you the very detailed horrible story of obtaining those ten balloons at the Balloon Emporium…where I will never ever go again. But anyway we made it home with nine in our possession and were well on our way to planning a wonderful movie night…ok…I’m lying. We got home and I took a nap, while Jasmin was sleeping. I couldn’t handle another second. I had already cried twice today. I needed to rest. You ever have one of those days when you feel like you are not yourself and have lost all control? That was me, until I took the nap. After about an hour, I was awakened by my husband, who was calling me so I could look through the piles of stuff on his desk to find a phone number. I tried to lay back down, but the boys could not be quiet any longer, so I gave up. Once Jasmin was up, we got ready and went out to get the snacks and popcorn and Max talked me into buying him a belt, since his pants were falling down. (remember the pants I got at the G sale the other day, Max is so stinking skinny he is swimming in most of them. – but at least he can grow into them). So we set stuff up, the kids fought over the balloons, it was like pulling teeth to get them to contribute, but they did a little, and it ended up we actually had fun. My sister’s kids made fake money to buy the snacks and oh, we also invited the neighbor girls, Shelby and Rylie, too. Here are a few pictures…oh, and the movie we watched was UP. I love that movie!
the snacks for sale at the concession stand
yeah! candy! (this is my littlest niece!)
our Adventure Club pins that we made (you’d understand why we did this, if you have seen the movie)
