This is What They Will Remember...

Simple things make it {special}-

My father-in-law had surgery this week so my husband flew to N.C. to be with him. While he was gone...I was keeping 3 acTivE kids busy. At night, they asked if they could have a sleepover. Which was fine for me b/c I am a scaredy cat so I didn't mind at all sleeping in the family room together.

Just pull out a few sleeping bags and pillows...put on some {classic} cartoons and it's almost better than {Disney}-well, not really but for this night it was!

It was 12:45am and I pulled out a little cookie dough in the frig. This is what happens when you have NO snacky food! My son's food {radar} was on high alert so we had some together in the kitchen~ We both felt so {sneaky}!

{Little "Missy" always seems to get the couch!}

Of all the things we do...this is what they will remember...I am sure of it!

What do you mean NO snacky food? Cookie dough IS snacky food! :-) I can't keep the pre-made dough cut into little squares otherwise they never make it to the oven! And I'm sure the kids will remember these times the most. Looks like you had fun! And I couldn't agree more about the classic cartoons...I miss Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd and Daffy Duck!

Fun, fun!!! I miss those times. I am a scaredy cat too, but I try to put a brave face on for Phillip. Phillip and Brett are on a roadtrip now and I am here in the old bungalow. I am going to stay with friends for a couple of days.

Hope your FIL's surgery went well.
