Try Out! Wipe Out!

Well the boys talked us into taking them sledding. This time they wanted to go to Tridell to the Famous TRY OUT! WIPE OUT! Although they didn't "wipe out" very much this time, I did get one good wipe out of Andy! It looks painful to me.

But it was a pretty good day. And the best part, after sledding we went back to Grandmas House and had GOULASH!

Bag Of Bags

So this blog is not always going to be about paintball. That does take up the majority of our time, but I also like to do about any Craft Thing there is. This is my latest project.

Now, don't think I am into recycling, but I am doing my part for the environment with this one. This is a bag that I crocheted entirely out of grocery bags. Now don't DIS it, because, I know that you will all want one just as soon as you see them. Just admit it!
I just finished the yellow and white one at work last night. It is made from Wal-Mart bags and Yellow Boi-Hazard Bags (yes, stolen from the hospital). All the stores around here have mostly white bags and it is hard to find the different colors. It takes about 15 bags for each row. So when I do find a store that has a different color I always ask them to double bag the stuff that I buy. You should see the looks I get from the cashiers when I buy 1 skein of embrodiery floss and ask them to double bag it. HA HA HA!!! What is even better, When I am getting to the end of the project and don't have enough bags to finish, I make Andy run into a store and ask them for 25 bags. Some times he has to go into several stores. It is GREAT, the Embarassment Factor! (ok, I have only made him do that once and will probably never ask him to do it again).
Anyway, I am always looking for different color bags. So if you find a store with bags other than white or yellow, please let me know. And if you don't mind, Save your bags for me, PLEASE!!

Diehard Paintball

Talk about COLD! For Andy's Birthday, he wanted to play Paintball, (Of Course). Even with the FIRE we built, it was TOO COLD! The Hot Chocolate and Chili didn't keep us warm for long. They only ended up playing 1 game, and that was after it took 1 hour to set up the guns. Paintball Guns don't do too well in the cold.

Justin and Tyler found other ways of entertainment. SLEDDING! There were a few hills nearby that took them for a few good rides. But poor little Spencer didn't do too well with the cold. He stayed by the fire as much as possible. So did I.

I don't think Andy's friends will come to his next birthday party if he plans to play FROZEN PAINTBALL TAG again. We might just have to have a HALF BIRTHDAY party in July.
