Origami and NYE fun

Holy cow it's been a looong time since I've posted!  Sometimes I get a little too much on my plate and something has to take a back burner for a bit.  But I miss blogging.  And I really do love being able to look back at posts and pictures and read about what we were up to this time 4 years ago.  Sooo, I'm gonna try to fit blogging back into my schedule.  

Now where to start lol?!  How 'bout some cool origami Vann's created recently...

He's pretty amazing when it comes to origami.  

This is a pop-up haunted house...see those ghosts??  Awesome!

He will fold for hours.  No joke.  He loves it!

We started a new science curriculum a month or so ago.  It's literature based which you know I love.  It's called the History of Science.  And so far we're loving it!  So kinda funny story...I misread our lesson plans the other day and we read page 62-65 of the wrong book.  Instead of learning about fluids, we learned about Newton's Three Laws...oops!  I didn't figure it out till a few days later lol.  

I bought these cool flashcards online.  You have no idea how much I appreciate the time others spend to create something like this.  

And then Vann had fun with Newton's Third Law.  His reaction was priceless.  Love him!  

What else can I tell you about?  How about New Year's Eve!  We did our balloon pop again.  The kids looove it and it will hopefully be a tradition we'll continue for years to come.

The balloons!

And my colorful leg warmers.  I'm obsessed with leg warmers these days.  

These two are a giggle fest when they get together. 

While the big kids made up a marshmallow story, this little guy made a marshmallow graph.  

Whatcha doin' Chayce? 

They thought their stories were hilarious! 

Trying to sink a marshmallow...proved to be quite difficult.  One of them did sink one, I forget who though. 

Then we made marshmallow
catapults.  Do you sense
a theme?!
Well we tried anyhow.  That
was a Pinterest fail lol.

So we stacked them instead.
Chaycers did great with this!

Got his tower!
And Chaycers got a
huge tower!

Oh my gosh charades...funny funny stuff you guys.  I was laughing so hard I was crying.  It was the best!

They were a team...I think this was boxing.

At the end of the night
this peanut crashed.
My Sweets

He was so close to falling off the back of the couch lol.  Don't worry after I snapped this pic I scooped him up and tucked him safely in bed.

And this guy got a belated Christmas gift from Pops, Chris's dad.  A guitar!  It was a complete surprise.  He had no idea and hasn't ever talked about wanting one.  I'm excited to see how it goes!  We actually had to send this one back because it was the wrong size...Pops had ordered a smaller one and they sent a full size.  Hopefully it'll get here soon so he can start learning how to play it.

It was a fun New Year's Eve! Their most fav activity was the glow-in-the-dark dance party.  And charades...I seriously need to video that next time.  Tears were rolling down my face when Vann was trying to be an ostrich.  It was the best!
