Baby Powder Disaster

I know this was posted on Facebook, but some people (Ahem--Emily!) don't have an account, so it's getting posted here too

So I was downstairs folding laundry, Lucy and Zack were in the living room playing and watching a show. After about 5 minutes I heard them running through the kitchen and dining room, which is a normal game of theirs.

It wasn't until I smelled the baby powder that I realized they might actually be doing something bad

This is what I came up to:

I even took video:

At first I had no idea how to clean it up, it was everywhere. When I heard they running through the kitchen it was them dumping the powder all over. They used 2 full size ones. I vacuumed up as much as I could, then I started to mop with water and vinagar. Well, that only left streaks of wet powder. I tried a dry swiffer, a wet swiffer, the vacuum again and finally what worked was getting on my hands and knees and scrubbing the floor with pinesol and hot water. It took 6 full 2qt buckets to get it clean.

And in case you are wondering, all the baby powder is now out of this house.

Wyatt's Birthday Party!

We had Wyatt's 7th birthday party this past Saturday. We did a BBQ and we ended up renting a moonwalk. Some of you might call it a bounce house.

The kids had a great time, the adults had a great time. Wyatt got lots of awesome gifts and a black eye to boot!
