Three girls home from school, all closed for health concerns had me at my wits end. What’s a mom to do with a bonus spring break, less than a month before school is out for the summer? Throw a swine flu party, of course!
After coating the house in a lovely shade of pepto-bismol pink, we assembled a not-too-small group of our bestest friends for an all-out hoedown (or should that be HOGdown?) and let the giggling piggies take over. We bedazzled air masks and colored our specially made t-shirts, munched on pigs in a blanket and hot dogs and pork and beans.. anything we could think of that fit the theme!
We decorated pig cookies (NOT a pork product, thank goodness!) and rented Charlottes Web and Babe, though I think the girls had more fun playing video games (correction: the Wii Wee Wee!) and with the balloons (never quite got that game to fit with a pun, but they were pink so it worked!).
In all, it was an incredibly fun day… though I won’t deny a few *squeals* of joy from the moms when we found out school was back in session today!
