Party Game - Works for Me Wednesday!

Do you remember watching Pollyanna?

I don't know why but one of my favorite scenes in the movie (growing up) was at the bizarre(carnival) they have, and Pollyanna is fishing through the curtain at the carnival game booth, and she pulls the fishing rod up and finds she has a doll on the end!

So for my son's 5th Birthday party.. I tried to make my own fishing game for them. Even though it was no Pollyanna scenario.. my kids and their cousins enjoyed fishing for prizes! I recommend this type of game for a children's party.. There is nothing like putting a fake fishing pole over a wall hoping for a cool toy lol :)

Here are some of the pics:

Here are the kids fighting getting ready to fish through the red curtain

Here is my brother unwilling willing putting toys on the “fish hook”

Here is my brother deciding which toy he will keep put on the hook

And here is my nephew pulling up his first toy. There is a banana

Sitting on the ledge there.. I think that was my brother’s idea of a

Joke as the first kid pulled on the fishing line!

Ok so this works for me as a Winner Party Game! :) lol

I, too, loved Pollyanna as a kid and think my two daughters will soon be old enough to watch it with me. This is a great game idea!!

Awww. I LOVE Pollyanna!!!!

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
