Wow! What a weekend.

Before the carnage

Well, the party went off without a hitch. It was a fabulous party if I do say so myself! :accomplished: I took Thursday off work to get the Pass-the-Pumpkins ready and fill pinatas. DH & I both took off Friday to clean and decorate. DH spent a lot of time cooking, too.

We kept it simple. The kids arrived and ran wild. It was hot dogs for dinner; the adults got ribs and tritip. We played pass the pumpkin and whacked away at 2 pinatas. Robert has music playing the whole time, but you can’t hear it because the kids are so loud.

I’ve had these bags for a while, but I
haven’t used them because they are so
flamable. They are so fragile now that
they tear if I touch them, so I decided
this was their last chance. I set them
out with a pebble in the bottom for
stability, and they worked great as
decorations in the house.

Saturday, Chunguita had a birthday party.

Sunday we went to see the mothball fleet.

I’m exhausted. :tired:

Not a big surprise.

Your result for Howard Gardner’s Eight Types of Intelligence Test…

Logical

“This area has to do with logic, abstractions, inductive and deductive reasoning, and numbers. While it is often assumed that those with this intelligence naturally excel in mathematics, chess, computer programming, and other logical or numerical activities, a more accurate definition places emphasis less on traditional mathematical ability and more reasoning capabilities, abstract pattern recognition, scientific thinking and investigation, and the ability to perform complex calculations.

Careers which suit those with this intelligence include scientists, mathematicians, engineers, doctors and economists.” (Wikipedia)
