Playing games…an art form mastered by many. #AboutUsGames

I love a good Ladies Night.

When you spend all day, every day with two kids who aren’t school age, a night off is a truly appreciated break.
Gather together your best girlfriends, spread out some delectable nibblies, and pour a glass, or several of your favourite “Mommy Juice”.
Instead of sitting around and clucking about the woes that your week had brought or complaining about your kids or husband, why not make it a game night?
When was the last time you played games (not the mind kind) with your gal pals?
About Us Games, has created a game just for Grown Up Girls.

In this game, you must answer questions related to the grown up female species. It combines guesswork with good-old fashioned retail therapy. And what grown up girl doesn’t love a little retail therapy?
Expect to pee your pants from laughter while enjoying some quality time with the ladies when you include About Us Games Grown Up Girls Edition to your next Ladies Night.
Chances are, you’ll learn something that you never knew before and you’ll be able to channel your inner Cliff Claven at your next social engagement.20140420-214936.jpg

4 year old Birthday Party, Halloween Style!

Happy 4th Birthday!

Happy 4th Birthday!

This past weekend, we celebrated our daughter’s 4th Birthday! And she decided this year that she wanted a Halloween themed party.

Just like her Mommy, she is a HUGE fan of all things Halloween, so when we asked her what she wanted to do, it was obvious.

As soon as  the Halloween decorations hit the store shelves, she started giving me her list of the decorations, food, treats, sounds, lights, etc. I had to stop her when she asked to have the “spooky baby in the walker” at her party. We wanted to have fun with our friends, not frighten them away.

This year I decided that I would make all the food, so I went with Mummy Wieners, Mummy Pizzas, a big ‘ol batch of Mac & Cheese, and for dessert, I made Oreo Ghosts and Franken Krispies (with my own twist). For the healthy aspect, there was fruit and veggies, of course. And what kind of party would it be without Party Mix and Veggie Straws?!

Unfortunately we were cakeless due to the demise of our cake makers oven, but it wasn’t missed and now we can use the idea next year.

It was maddness, but as long as there was food and stuff for the kids to do, that was all I was worried about. The kiddos seemed like they were having a good time, the food was being gobbled up and there were no meltdowns had by anyone (parents included).

Now my only worry is, how will I one-up myself next year?
