Friday the 13th

 It's Friday the 13th and in the James household that means Oreo cookies and milk!
 To make the night even more fun, Todd told the kids to invite their friends over.  He then gave all the kids pvc pipes, duct tape, aluminum foil, foos balls, and a lot of other gadgets and told them to make a "mouse trap" sort of thing-a-ma-bob.  I don't know the real name but it is one of those things that make dominos fall over, and things fly up, and ...well, you get the picture.
 The girls worked on their creation, while the boys worked on theirs.  To add more to the challenge, the end of the contraption was to reveal a memory verse that we are working on at church.
 On of our elders popped in with his video camera, and video taped the kids' contraptions.  Todd plans on playing the video Sunday morning to introduce this week's memory verse.
 The kids got into the whole challenge and had a lot of fun.
 In the midst of the building we had the kids make their own pizzas.  I had the dough, sauce, and cheese on the pizzas.  The kids put whatever toppings they wanted on them. 
 After it was all said and done, the girls disappeared only to reappear as...
.(I like the cat and dog faces better than the zombies *Note: earlier post) Can you believe they went downtown dressed up like that.  They couldn't understand why they got stares from people.  Go figure!
