One last kid idea before I disapper for a little while.

This is another one of my happy accidents. We no longer buy or even make pinatas with paper mache(which we did for years). When we need a pinata I just get a gift sack, which we usually aready have. And we usually cut out a picture that goes with the theme of the party. Last year Matthew's was Super man so I got a school folder for less than a dollar, cut out Superman and we had a Superman pinata. This year I just used one of the invitations we used to invite Brittany's friends and then added a little paint. Joshua's we just painted ballons on. If you happen to have a cuter sack than we did your work is done. I have put an extra sack in holding the candy, but then it takes forever to break! Staple it closed, tye it up to hang from a broom or a tree and you are set! We made three! Oh, and I don't know what is up with that goofy face Brittany is making! I will try and post one more time if the movers don't take my computer tomorrow. I may try and do it along the way, if not I will be back probably by July 15. Love you guys, thanks for all of your encouragement. Don't forget me!
