VIPKid ATL


VIPKidATL

Last night I went to a VIPKid ATL event called Pandamonium at Zoo Atlanta.  It was held in the Panda Pavilion and I got to meet a bunch of other VIPKid teachers.

It was really fun.

Plus, the pandas are adorable.

The zoo was closed and the animals were all sleeping.  Probably because it was finally quiet.

I figured since I took photos of the Pandas, which are from China, I should take a photo of the Bald Eagle, the symbol for the USA.

The food was amazing.  There was a stir fry station and a mac & cheese bar.

There were tons of raffles, but I didn't win any prizes.

I did get to meet Dino!

Leftover Halloween Candy for Breakfast


It's true.  I served my kids left over Halloween candy for breakfast this morning.

But it's not quite as bad as it sounds.

Well, maybe it is.

Basically, we used the Halloween candy to make pancakes.

We found that M&Ms make good pancakes.

So do Heath bars and Hershey Bars.

Peanut M&Ms and York Peppermint Patties are kind of a fail.

The boys and I did a few little Halloween art projects for school.

Spiritomb made a Halloween appearance.  
And then devoured Lex's soul.  Poor kid.

This T-Rex is causing trouble all over the house.

We went out for pizza at Mellow Mushroom with some friends before going Trick or Treating this year, which was a solid dinner decision.

Connor is Trump.
Lex is the T-Rex.
Noah is the Grim Reaper with Red Eyes.
Not that you can tell.
I mean, they could just be three random kids.
But they aren't.
Those are our people.

That gorilla?
That's my husband.
I swear.

And they got a ton of candy.

Connor ate all of the Reese's Cups on the first night.
Like 39 of them.

They even got some full-sized Reese's Cups.

It's a pretty funny story, actually.
Kevin told the kids that he had heard a rumor that a house all the way at the end of the street was giving away full-sized candy bars.  Just to mess with them.  So, they took off running.  And they came back with full-sized candy bars!  But he had made it up! Except he hadn't, somehow.

Halloween 2018

We just left an M&M shaped bowl full of candy on our front porch while we were out.
I have no idea if the first kid emptied the whole thing, or if it lasted for a while.
But it was definitely empty when we got home.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Since we celebrated my birthday yesterday in Helen, Georgia, we went ahead and celebrated again at home today, on the day of my birth.  Happy Birthday to me!

I wanted chili and corn bread for dinner, so that's what I made.

Bad puns and all.
