Wow! It's already Day 5 of
Crazy! That week went by SUPER fast.
Since Daddy was scheduled to come home today,
(he's been at Travis AFB having eye surgery all week)
we wanted to get OUR house clean & shiny so he could relax as soon as he got home. We knew his eyes would still be hurting him & we wanted to create a nice atmosphere for him. We REALLY missed him.
The first thing we did was a chore scavenger hunt.
Ready, Set, Go!
The kids ran all around the house emptying garbages, cleaning toilets, picking up toys, & all sorts of quick chores that make the house sparkling clean. As a reward for completing the hunt, they each received a Hostess SNOWBALL.
For our camp craft for the day we baked cookies for daddy. They are my favorite
Peanut Butter Cookie
recipe. Super easy & gluten free too!
2 cups peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla
Bake 12 minutes at 350 & you're DONE.
After eating a TON of cookies, Cadence & Lorien competed in the
3-legged mop race.
We tied their legs together & they had to figure out how to work together to get the floor mopped without falling over. Needless to say, there were SEVERAL "spills" & "falls" but all was accompanied with MUCH LAUGHTER. It was fun.
Daddy came home in the middle of naptime for the little ones, but as soon as they woke up, we all went to the park to
Everyone was SO happy to have Daddy home, that even I forgot to take pictures of my special dinner. It was Mommy's night this time & I made yummy Italian Chicken for dinner. But really, we were all just happy to have our daddy home again.
