“To you who are parents, I say, show love to your children. You know you love them, but make certain they know it as well. They are so precious. Let them know. Call upon our Heavenly Father for help as you care for their needs each day and as you deal with the challenges which inevitably come with parenthood. You need more than your own wisdom in rearing them.”
Thomas S. Monson

Party like its 11/11/11!!

Back in January we had a great idea! We noticed it was 1/11/11 and thought that was really cool. We realized that another cool date for this year was going to be 11/11/11. Since this is a rare phenomenon we decided to celebrate it! As luck would have it this awesome date fell upon a Friday. We got pizza and watched a movie and then played Cranium together. It really was fun! At 9:30 I was really tired, but the kids reminded me that I had promised to let them stay up untill 11:11pm. We watched the clock and at 11:11 we counted out 11 seconds and the party ended! Bedtime!! Now the kids are excited to do a 12/12/12 party next year. I am not so sure I will make it that late, but maybe with the help of some dark sunglasses, the kids won't notice when I nod off!
