costume parade party

There’s no better way to catch a glimpse of your favorite kiddos in their costumes than by letting them parade around the yard with the Ghostbusters theme blaring. So this week we did just that. The name of this game was to keep it as low-key as possible so we could really enjoy their crazy costumed antics and the company of friends, too.

After they paraded the yard, we handed out awards for their costumes. It was funny to get  input from their parents, moms always know exactly what to say to make their kids beam with pride. For Goldie being awarded “Fashion Cat” put her over the moon.

How lucky were we to spend the afternoon with superheroes, firefighters, ninjas, cupcakes, dragons, Dorothy, Jasmine, and a couple tough guys?

Party Details

Since this was a post nap, pre-dinner soiree, we let them indulge in a one or two sweets. We suggest putting the treat table a bit higher up than 3 feet, or one or two sweets will quickly escalate.

      Article submission is an exrtmeely powerful process and too be honest I am not sure wether i agree with doing it automatically. My current SEO stratergys for article marketing are fairly simple. I outsouce an article to be written by a professional english writer, the article must contain at least 1,200 words and be of exrtmeely high quality. Next i will submit it to the top 20 article websites based on Page Rank and traffic. After submitting the articles i will then do some basic backlinking and bookmarking to make sure they get indexed by the search engine spiders. I find that doing article marketing this way works exrtmeely effective however i suppose that having the software submit less quality articles to the less dominant websites and then submit to the ones manually that you can’t use a tool for with your quality article because at the end of the day quality backlinks never hurt anyone.

    I just finished catching of on all your posts. This is such a great idea for a site and you guys really do it right. I also have two boys myself (2 1/2 and 1). I need to find a group of moms to do things with.

      It wouldn’t be doable unless we did it together, it gets too overwhelming. You can always join us if you’re ever nearby!

      We use Adobe Illustrator for this blog, but a really user friendly and free way is Picasa!
