Since Disney is no longer on, on Sunday evenings (or if it is I'm missing it) and since I can't eat Nachos because you have to make them with corn chips- we decided to compromise. We'd make our homemade pizza, because it rocks and then we'd set up blankets, put on a movie and hang out and be together.
It took a little time, and a little bit of pineapple and cheese snitching but we managed to get 'er done. It was great! The girls were over joyed at the idea of spending time, eating something like pizza in the living room hanging out with me.
Sometimes it's so easy for me to get busy and not spend a ton of undivided time with the girls. I love to play and craft with them, but often we're interrupted, or I need to do something at the same time. This time I purposely hung out, I didn't do dishes, I didn't fold clothes and I didn't check my email. It surprised me to find that I needed it almost more than they did.
We had 2 of those, one each weekend and made a decision. Pizza and movie nights were too cool to keep to ourselves, we needed to make them an official Sunday night event so that Daddy could be included too.
With this weekend being Thanksgiving, I started thinking of all the things I'm thankful for. It's something I've been trying to do on a more regular basis anyways these days. It's amazing how remembering what you have to be grateful for makes the things you tend to grumble about seem less important.
Anyways, of all of the things I'm thankful for - my husband, my beautiful daughters, my family, our work, a God who pretty much rocks and the list goes on, these new memories are pretty high on the list. And I'm really thankful for one night a week that includes cheesy gooey goodness.
So, if you haven't answered the question on 45 other blogs today, what are you thankful for?
