that is cause for a celebration.
at least a little one.
i celebrated at target first.....
rainbow is everywhere when you look for it.
when i was a little girl i remember going our neighbors home to watch it
the night it was on tv because he had a COLOR tv.
i thought his house was a mansion.
it was on the corner and his driveway circled from one side, around the back and out to the other side.
heaven for roller skates and bike riding.
and that neighbor used to always say "how are you boys doing?" when he'd see me and my friend.
we'd say "WE'RE NOT BOYS!"
he was funny.
my dad made a cassette tape by putting the tape recorder to the tv (i think?)
and recorded the whole movie.
i listened to it so many times.
still to this day i know all the words....every song...even the background noises like the pigs in the beginning.
i know the EXACT moment when it was time to turn the tape over.
dorothy had just escaped, she screams and the wicked witch busts in and says "GOING SO SOON?"
and you had to quickly turn over the tape.
i have always loved this movie.
i forgot that my kids hadn't seen it.
not the youngest three at least.
i made some rainbow treats....to set the mood.
colored ice cubes and sprite.
this tasted like nothing but they thought it was really cool.
and my kids didn't care that their drinks turned brown.
it was a fun drink....for kids.
adults would be a little grossed out.
fruit arranged in a rainbow.
this is so easy to do!
dessert was rice krispy treats....made with fruity pebbles.
we ate on rainbow paper plates.
simple small things that made our evening special.
after dinner we all moved to the couch and watched the dvd.
and i couldn't believe it....
NO ONE left.
all 5 kids watched the whole movie!
it shocked me.
the littler ones had LOTS of questions.
and as soon as the tornado started annie ran to my lap...scared.
she stayed there the rest of the movie.
even waffle liked it!
this morning annie announced at breakfast "i liked that movie last night!"
tell me....what is your favorite wizard of oz memory?
