Maybe it was because I didn't have kids yet...not sure. I still feel like I do fun stuff even with being a mom/wife/runner, etc. Right?!? Well I just don't quite do stuff like this anymore...this was way back in 1998.
First Grade - I turned the entrance of my classroom into the Mayflower and part of my class too. I remember stopping at a hotel and asking for 40 bars of soap so 2 first grade classrooms could use plastic knives to create 'arrowheads' - they sure made my class smell good while they were carving away at those. haha! Good times, good memories!
This school was so good to me - I have since changed schools but am still in the same district...anywho for my baby shower for my first the invites said -- BABY SHOWER HAPPY HOUR!! LOL isn't that crazy! They all had happy hour at my baby shower while I drank punch. Too funny! Then they took a 6 pack ( wine cooler ) pack covered it with baby paper - then put baby bottles in the holders where the wine went and filled each bottle with cash to go with the happy hour theme. Clever!!
Hope you got a good laugh and if any of you feels creative and energetic give this a try the kiddos loved it!!
