Campouts, Father Goose, and Pajama Day

So just thought I would share a few of the fun things we’ve been up to these last few days. Aby’s been such a good girl and so helpful since daddy left, so I decided we would have a “campout” Aby got an adorable monkey tent for Christmas and has been wanting to use it, so I set it up upstairs by my bed and we had a campout. She watched a show on her little tv, had snacks, then she slept in it that night. She loved it. She’s actually slept in there 2 nights since then.
          On Monday, they had “Father Goose” at the library. I decided to take the girls. He sang songs, told mother goose stories, and had some trick books that sprayed him with water, etc… The kids loved it. He had them laughing the whole time. Even Ali Jo sat still on my lap and watched him. It was such a fun thing to do with the girls. Aby has asked me to sing the “Father Goose Song” since then.
On Tuesday, it was snowy and cold, and I knew we wouldn’t be getting out, so I decided we would have a Pajama Day. (Mommy did cheat and slip on a skirt. You never know when someone may stop byJ) Aby called it a Pajama party. We woke up this morning and I went to get her dressed and she still wanted to stay in her pjs. I had to explain we can’t have pajama day everyday. J
          Tonight I was reading Aby some books before bed, and was just thinking how the smallest little things can be so mean so much to a child.  I don’t have to spend a lot of money or buy them things to make them happy. Just spending some time with them and doing a few fun things with them makes their day. They are growing up soooo fast. I’m cherishing every moment!

  1. That is so awesome! I think some of my most favorite childhood memories are the things we did at home for fun that didn't cost much or anything at all. I love that last picture of the girls, so precious.
    Keep up the good Mommy work!!
