family night ~ kung fu

Carter and his broken boards:)

Last night our theme was "Kung Fu". We had Chinese cuisine (orange chicken & sweet and sour chicken) for dinner, ate with chop sticks, gobbled up fortune cookies for dessert and earned our black belts in board breakin'! We ended our evening with the movie "Kung Fu Panda".

Abby showing off the muscles!

Rusty found a few 2x4's hiding in the garage, cut them down to about 18 inches long and then cut them almost through in the middle with the circular saw.... to make it easier to break when the kids tried out their karate moves:) Everyone wore a white T-Shirt and I bought some wide black ribbon for our "black belts". The whole night cost less then 30 bucks and it was so much fun!
