Jay helped me re-do the hanging lamp in Julia's room. We trimmed off the extra dangly chips and attached this one instead. It turned out even better than I expected.
These guys were here while their parents went to a wedding, so we had a long afternoon and evening together. They played video games for a while--their very favorite thing. That Wii is so old that it's touchy and they get frustrated, but we kept trying until it worked.
At 3:30 we headed for the Mardi Gras carnival at church. It's pretty tame, but festive, and the kids were happy to be there, enthusiastic participants.
This was where they spray paint hair.
Waiting their turns, very excited to be the proud winner of an entire 2 liter bottle of lemonade.
They are throwing bean bags at the little stuffed animals. Lots of winners on this game.
I love this little retro kitchenette in the back of this room upstairs.
Supper was served--hot dogs and sloppy joes, chips and coleslaw, cookies and ice cream.
I guess it wasn't ice cream, it was Culver's custard, donated by the pastor's parents who own a Culvers Restaurant.
That face painting--I think he told me it's a Cyborg? I don't know what that is, but he looked good.
And then we came home and silly kids enjoyed the evening.
Thanks to you kids for making a boring Saturday in February so much fun. Onward to Sunday.
