Sweet Shooter (aka Marshmallow Madness or the Boy's Birthday)

As I mentioned here, Saturday was Party Day for the Boy. And what a party it was! 7 boys, an assortment of sisters, and a box full of PVC pipe. Oh...and a pinata full of candy, a panful of brownies, and a mountain of cheese puffs.

Peter designed his brownie "cake", which mom made to his specifications.

Poor Dad worked all morning cutting and sanding PVC pipe. It was quite a job, but worth it for the fun the boys had with the marshmallow shooters! (The road to marshmallow shooters was pretty rocky...we spent an hour looking for the connectors we had bought the night before, only to find that they had been stuck in the *freezer* ...probably by mom...ack! Then one bag of elbow joints was the wrong kind, but Mrs. Jodie saved the day by bringing us another bag. :))
Load, blow, and shoot...
With marshmallows flying all around her, Ammah Grace was completely content playing on the slide.
Serious business!
Take my picture, mom!
My favorite shot of the day. Josh had already lost his gum in his gun (his lucky mom got to dig it out!) Here he is working up some serious velocity!
Blowing out the candles...
Clean -up Crew...
Bayley had had a *loonngg* day...
And a good time was had by all!

Oh! And in case there is a boy in your life who *needs* a marshmallow shooter (they *all* do!), the plans can be found here. If you are looking for a frugal Christmas gift for a boy on your list...look no further! About $2.00 worth of PVC pipe and fittings, and a bag of mini-marshmallows, and you're all set. :)
