Family Night: Start a New Tradition
Once again, a week has gone by and I have ideas for Family Night but am lacking the motivation to implement! Daddy had a long week at work and wants a nap so I offer to take littles to leave some quiet at home.
A new tradition is born as we head to Hallmark to pick out their ornaments for this year (hooray for a sale!) and then for Frosty's!
Ok, I have to give some background here. Every year around Christmas, I think about the ornament of the year and how I really want to do a Hallmark ornament. Then, I have sticker shock and decide to just settle for something else which always leaves me feeling disappointed somehow. Last year I really struggled over what to do and struggled with regret. So, when stumbling upon a sale this year and talking to David, we felt it was worth it!
And, what a fun time we had! I am so glad already and it is still September! :) It was a special outing, and sweet new memories were made!
They each chose so well - going with what they love! Samuel: a motorcycle! Rachel: a little furry elephant! Emily: a Barbie in a tweed "fashion-y" suit!
Then across the parking lot for Frosty's - would you believe (yes, you probably would) that my littles asked if I could bring sprinkles to go with?! I brought Christmas sprinkles in my purse and then FORGOT to use them - aaaaack! :) But, we had fun even without sprinkles!
After tacos for dinner, we did play a couple of games including Daddy for Family Night!
Yes, "Life is a Special Occasion!" And, what sweet memories we made celebrating and being together!
