Family night.

I'm so glad that Heather Whittaker decided to do Famiy night as a weekly carnival. Maybe it will encourage me to actually TAKE pictures and then actually post them.

So far we've done National Treasure night, Cinco de Mayo, Luau, Monkey night, Movie night & our favorite was Pirate night.

Here are bits of the past 3 weeks that I didn't take the time to post.

We had Backwards night. Where we ate under the table. We had pizza in our cup, 7 down and unbirthday cupcakes. I didn't get a pic but we had an inside out pinata. I just hot glued candy to the outside of a balloon. We also played limbo, but instead of going under, we jumped over the stick. It was a lot of fun.

Next we had a Pajama Party. Dinner was pigs in a blanket. We played Midnight Madness board game where you have to act out certain things. Ross had to be a cowgirl and romp around the room giving his best Yippee Ky was hysterical. Then we snuggled down in the living room for some bedtime stories.

This week we had Under the Sea night. We had "seaweed" for dinner (spinach pasta) and wore Ariel costumes & swimsuits. We used pretzels as fishing poles, pb as bait and goldfish crackers for a "fishing" snack. Then we swam in our blow up pool and followed it up by watching Nemo.

I don't know how you have the energy to have these themed parties every week, but I know my kids would love it. My oldest one would love to plan it I'm sure. Maybe I'll try to do a couple in the summer. Thanks for the fun ideas!!
