Until last Saturday, it had been WAY too long since there had been a fun gathering with friends at the Bradberry household. We were thrilled that three set of our friends could join us for a night of football, letting our kiddos play, snacks, a little Mario Cart, and Guitar Hero World Tour! We had such a great time, we've decided to make it a monthly tradition!
some shots of the action
The older kids all got a chance to show there vocal skills (aka eat and slobber on the mic)
We were all floored by how wonderful our kiddos were! They stayed so happy, that we rocked on until midnight! All but baby Jackson -who slept so sweetly on his mommy and daddy- stayed up and danced and played well into the night! My floor was about an inch deep in goldfish crackers, there were sippy cups everywhere, and toys were scattered all around, but I did not care. Everyone was having fun!
More pictures of the kids... Just because they are all so cute!
There was one pre-party disaster... the finger incident. While slicing sweet potatoes for a dish for the kids, Brittany accidently removed one of her fingerprints. Yes people, we are talking a chunk of her finger laying on the cutting board. Dispite her tragedy, Brittany persevered. She sang, played, guitar, and even the drums with the best of us. She is quite the trooper, but said it took her mind off the pain.
We took turns playing and watching the kids, four at a time. Ada and Anna Kate were a little sneaky while their mommies were pre-occupied. For Ada, it was cow's milk. She swiped Anna Kate's sippy cup and took her first sips (well more like gulps) of good ol' moo milk. It was love at first gulp. Just wait Ada, only a few more weeks until you can taste that creamy liquid through your straw every day!
Anna Kate snuck in a first as well. CHOCOLATE! She swiped someone's cup of chocolate pudding/brownie mixture and went to town. She had us all doubled over with laughter on how serious she was about not giving her treasure up. Of course though... she only got a couple of bites in while we took the picture, then had to surrender it. I cannot in good conscience let my one year old gobble down chocolate.
Chris. Amy. Anna Kate. Throw in a dog and a couple a cats, and that's our little family! Chris and I were high school sweethearts and were married in 2005. Anna Kate stole our hearts and changed our lives with her arrival in September of 2007. Our time together as a family is now spent on playgrounds, playing with baby dolls, watching Sesame Street, reading board books and finger painting. My wonderful husband deals with the headaches of the stock market all day, so that I can have the privilege of staying home with our beautiful one year old. This is a peek into our world.
