Friday Night Fun

The grandkids stayed over on Friday night and Saturday.  We had a really fun time.

I decorated the table using the Mickey Mouse plates and glasses from the Disney Store.  The blue placemats are from Dollar Tree.  Yes, I only paid $1 for each placemat...such a steal and a nice compliment to the plates.  Perfect for outside.

I used the balloon napkin ring holders to hold the napkins in place.  The grandkids were very excited to have a party.  We served them Little Caesar's pepperoni pizza with sweet tea and French vanilla cupcakes with buttercream icing.  Homemade of course!


I love these Mickey Mouse glasses.


Aren't these cupcakes adorable?  I've had the liners and the fun toppers for at least a year or two.

Mr. W loves to have a party!

So do these two!

The trick of the day was to see if you could stand on the floats, do splits or flip each other over.

This was a surprise to see Mr. W on a float.  Just a few weeks ago I tried to get him to float and he would have nothing to do with it.  It's amazing how peer pressure will make you do things you are normally afraid of...he was not going to be left behind!

Do you think he was having any fun?

Sweet P is trying to get her sister to flip her.  She was trying to get everyone to flip her.

After dinner we set up the projector and the screen so we could watch movies outdoors.  We hooked up my laptop to the projector so we could choose movies on Netflix.  For sound, we used our new JBL smaller speakers to have a surround sound.  It was awesome!!!  You could be at the end of the pool (farthest from the projector) and still hear everything.

The kiddos watched Power Rangers for a while before we watched Echo.  After Echo we watched Yours, Mine and Ours.  They had their Mickey Mouse popsicles while floating in the pool.

We roasted marshmallows around the fire pit and made s'mores.  Don't worry the snacks were spaced out over a five hour time frame.  And you know how hungry they get when they swim!


Mr. W was tired so the hubs laid down in bed with him until he fell asleep.  Only the hubs fell asleep with him!  All the while Sweet P is outside waiting for her Paw Paw to come and get her so she can go to bed, too.  We woke him up and he put her to bed.  Ms. A and I finished watching the movie and were done at midnight.  Truth be told, we would have easily watched another movie outside but we didn't want to have to bring all of the stuff in by ourselves.  :)  So the hubs helped us bring everything in and went to bed.  Ms. A and I watched Captain America.  We didn't get to bed until 2:30 a.m.


I love this picture of them sitting on the sofa watching Zootopia.  It's a rare occasion to see them sitting in birth order.  :)

Sweet P put together the Snow White puzzle with a little help from me.  She had it put together in no time at all.  I don't know how she does it.


We had a great time.  But I must say, it was nice and quiet after they went home.  :)

I hope you are having a good week.

Take care,
