A jello brain...
First on the agenda was a watergun fight. We got lucky with them! We couldnt find any except for the tiny ones in the party favor section. Until a friend said she saw some at the Dollar General. So we stopped after the games, and bingo! They were marked $2, $4 and $10. I didnt really want to spend that much, but I figured it wasnt too bad. I was pleasantly surprised when they actually rang up $1.20, $1.50 and $4!
Rememeber I mentioned trying to make a paper mache nose? Well, here it is. I have already heard it looks like boobs, I know it kind of does. But it was my first attempt, I think it came out okay!
Eww.... This was just metamucil & water. The kids loved it though!
Doesnt that make you want to dig in?
Next up was even more slime. The idea was to dig in the slime and find a bouncy ball. That is, until I realized the balls float. So we started out like this...
But then we figured it was easier to do it without, I just told them to let their hands sink in and play with it for a second. It didn't take long for it to go from this:

Cheesy picture of Mike & I.
After all the fun and our bellies were full, we hit the gift shops. Had to try on some silly hats!
The Polynesian was really pretty. It would be nice to stay there someday. Maybe eventually! This was the view from outside of the Ohana on the second floor. We could see the top of Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain and the Grand Floridian.
The entrance/exit at the front...

I offered Blake all sorts of suggestions for his birthday this year. Those inflatable play-places (we have two that just opened), a paint your own pottery place, the movies... But, he wanted to have it at home. And his theme?
Totally Gross. So I put my thinking cap on and got busy. I think it's going to turn out good. I havent taken a picture of the invitations yet, but I will! I am going to attempt to make a paper mache nose. The plan is to fill it with slime & bouncy balls and have them dig in. I also want to make slime (the cornstarch & water variety) and have them dig for rubber snakes in it. Then I thought I could have them make some of the very same slime. Then it's time for water balloons! I bought all kinds of bugs, rats, snakes, etc to decorate with. And I am planning on freezing some mini-spiders into ice cubes for the drinks. Oh, and I got one of those brain jello molds. I will defiantly post photos! Does anyone else have any other suggestions or ideas?
And the Sweet & Sinister Swap seems to be creeping up on me. I thought I had plenty of time, until I realized we have to mail on October 1st! So I am trying to whip that stuff out too. I think I need a day off just to craft!
