Jumpin' Monkeys!

In an effort to prevent ourselves from going crazy with our kids out of school (and it being soooo cold and rainy), some friends and I took our kids (and a few extras) to Jungle Jumpers, a bouncy house place in Winder. It was great!! It is beautifully decorated in the foyer and hallway, the jumping room is super nice with couches and wing back chairs. The bathrooms are nice and big with changing tables. It was so clean and nice. I would highly recommend it to anyone who lives in the area and is looking for something fun to do with your kids. Check out the website for all the details.

Party Time!

We have finished up school for 2009! Today was party day for Karlee and Kendall. I found a great babysitter (who doesn't have another job and can work during the day) to keep the twins while I did a little bit of Christmas shopping and then hit the party circuit. Kendall's was first - she was so excited about it. They had a feast: apples, grapes, cheese cubes, Christmas tree cookies, white chocolate dipped pretzel sticks, cheese puffs, fudge covered oreos and apple juice. The juice was the biggest hit since they only get water at snack time everyday. Then they made paint swirl ornaments and listened to 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. After the party, I took Kendall back home and then headed to RBES for Karlee's party. It was so much fun, but like a whirlwind - so crazy with 16 kindergartners running around. They played Santa Bingo, made Magic Reindeer Food, iced and decorated ice cream cone Christmas trees, made snowmen snow globes, had a book exchange and ate a snack. It was such a fun day and I loved seeing all the fun crafts they made especially the ornaments. I have a small tree for only hand-made ornaments but I think I will have to get a bigger one for next year.
