Lord of the Rings Marathon

What do you get when you take 9 teenagers in costume, an entire kitchen island full of food and 12 hours straight (other than food and potty breaks) of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy?  A very long, but fun filled day!  Our three oldest and some of their friends were here yesterday to do just that.  The kids had been planning it for a while now.  Our two youngest weren't allowed to participate (a whole other blog post:)) so our youngest son had 3 of his friends over (siblings to the others) and  youngest daughter and I had a Christmas movie/game playing day.  I am so thankful to be able to open up our house, now that the remodel is finally almost done!  I am also blessed to have kids that enjoying being here at our house!  That has always been one of Hubby's and my goal is to make sure the house is open to all the kids and their friends (after they ask for permission of course!)
