{11.11.11}

What were we doing on 11.11.11 at 11:11 AM?Since the kids didn't have school today due to Veteran's day we were spending time together...just the way I like it.We were halfway through this movie. A very fun flick which resulted in making a "Thrill Points" list.One bowl of buttery popcorn and one bowl of kettle corn was being eaten.The morning was also spent making awards for family members (something the girls like to do often) and of course playing with planes and trains.Ella requested a photo with me and Mailee was happy to oblige. I am learning that I need to be in pictures with my kids and not just be the one taking them. Even though I was hoping the kids would sleep in since we had a late night at Disneyland, they got up at 6:15 (on the one day they can sleep in!) so the didn't start out as lazy as I hoped, but so far the day has been wonderfully lazy.

Bret finished up early from his morning surgeries and is home with us. More movies are going to be viewed and more books will be read.

The girls have already said they need at least 30 "Thrill Points" (Judy Moody) today and have informed me graham crackers dipped in hot cocoa, a mega dance party and a long bubble bath in my tub with glow sticks should get those 30 points.

Like I said, at 11:11 today I was with my family and will be for the entire day and that's the way I like it!

Love that picture of you.

I had to babysit the other day and totally remembered the glow sticks idea for bath time from your blog. I got a pack of glow sticks for 50 cents and they LOVED me. I need to remember this for when I have kids.

I was wanting to see that movie because but didn't know if it was worth it. I like your quilt under the popcorn. Glad you've enjoyed your day together.

You are absolutely beautiful! How does your hair have that beautiful wave?!?! If it isn't all natural, what's your secret? Mine has some wave to it, but it tends to go frizzy. I'd love to have it curl better like yours!

We watched that movie for our friday night movie/pizza party and my girls loved it too. They thought it was so funny. I can't believe we're already halfway into November. Wowza.

That picture of you and Ella is gorgeous!
