my poor blog has been abandoned the past month :( let me clear off the cobwebs and i'll fill you in :)
of course i've been crocheting!
puff stitch beanie
wacky monster beanie accompanied by nathans cheeeeese face
we had a family movie night at church the beginning of summer. we watched kung fu panda. one of our family favs for sure!
jaren is on the activity committee (they're the ones who put this on) and came up with some pretty neat decor ideas. we bought red poster board (2 for $1) from the dollar tree. man do i love that place! i also picked up a few rolls of electrical tape to use around the edges of the posterboard to make them not so drab. then he (we) came up with some church sayings and used google translator and had them translated into chinese characters and glued them to the poster board. so if they're not right, blame google ;) jaren also made 25 origami cranes that we taped around some of the posters.
i made "panda" cupcakes, kinda sorta?
i found a po picture online and added text that said, "enjoy the movie, or else" and printed it onto brown lunch sacks to use as popcorn bags. i suggest doing this only if you have a top feed printer!! i don't, mines a bottom feed. and i broke my less than 30 day old printer!!! so i jumped onto kodak.com and "chatted" with there 24/7 technical support about my broken printer. EXACTLY 23 1/2 hours later, i had a BRAND NEW PRINTER at my doorstop thanks to the big brown truck :) and thank you kodak for having great customer service!
k, back to the popcorn... we had 2 homemade caramel corns, jalapeno cheese, cheddar cheese and basic popcorn. they were all SOOOO good!
the "concession stand"...
we bought chinese takeout boxes and filled them with candy for each of the kids to have. i printed the CTR logo in chinese on labels and cut them out and stuck them to one side of the box.
the other side was a kung fu panda picture i found online and added text that fit the nights theme.
fun was had by all!
