Wild Wild Wild Sloan! (with dinosaurs)

Badges, dinosaur gummi cupcakes, and wild kratts power suits and even custom Kratt gang sock puppets were the order of the day! And a really great excuse to hold a party!

Happy birthday to me! Mommy is still getting the video of everyone together.

7 I'm now 7 years old!
And to celebrate I had a cool Wild Kratts themed party where instead of getting creature (animal) powers we got DINOSAUR powers!

Potty potty potty!

Shh... day something of mommy trying to potty train me. Only time I could talk, she's currently napping.
Send help or goldfish!
If she doesn't stop son I will be trained then my carefree life is over and I have to notice when to go.
Or send gold fish so I have snack for potty.

The Heart Project-a collaborative fundraiser for the American Heart Association

With February (the month of hearts) coming up in just a day, here is a marvelous project you should totally check out! Evie and Sloan even have a contribution!

Heart Project Image

  • The Heart Project – In an effort to raise funds for a great cause, I have had the great privilege of collaborating with more than 70 fellow bloggers to create an e-book showcasing our craft ideas. This e-book is filled with over 100 gorgeous heart-shaped crafts, with e-links to the “how-to” on each crafter’s blog, and will be available for purchase through-out the entire month of February. The cost of the e-book is five ($5) dollars (U.S funds), withall proceeds going to the American Heart Association. Downloads to the e-books will be available on each of our blogs as of February 1, 2012.

I am thrilled to announce that a hard-copy of our book will also be available (in soft cover), through Amazon.com for twenty ($20) dollars (U.S. funds). Five dollars from every purchase of a the hard-copy books will go to the American Heart Association. I personally can’t wait to get a hard copy for myself!!!

Jamie at Hands on : as we grow has managed this project, and she has a very personal reason for wanting to support this charity. She’s done an outstanding job of creating a quality book to bring in donations.

Wild Wild Wild Sloan! (with dinosaurs)

7 I'm now 7 years old!
And to celebrate I had a cool Wild Kratts themed party where instead of getting creature (animal) powers we got DINOSAUR powers!

School was even a half day today! Yeah that's cool and so my friends got to come over really early in the day so we got to have lots of fun on my actual birthday. And there were games and dinosaur cupcakes with dinosaur sprinkles and games and gifts (yeah the gifts were cool!)

Presents? My turn presents?

Yeah Evie was really sad that she didn't get presents (she got some and she helped me open some) but she was still sad. But she liked the game so that made her forget presents.

Everyone got a cool Wild Kratts power vest! And lots of dino power badges-we had to do something to earn each of them. For the T-Rex carnivore badge we had to eat 3 dinosaur nuggets ROARRR yummy!

Oh if we ate goldfish we got the Spinosaurus or Pteranadon badge (both really like fish you know) and eating veggies got you the Triceratops (herbivore badge).
Then there was the ankylasaurus badge (I wore a laundry basket on my head and crawled to the dining room while daddy tried to hit me with a nerf gun! Hee hee so fun!

This is one of the power vests with the Martin Kratt sock puppet mommy made.

Here is all of the Wild Kratt characters: Aviva, Koki, Jimmy Z, Martin Kratt and Chris Kratt

We did have some angry birds too!

So mommy said she's putting stuff together as a video but... I'd wait and see if she does. So come back and see!
