Winter's Last Hurrah

This past week we had what will probably be the last winter storm of the season. It was probably one of the coldest storms this winter, leaving a light dusting of snow on the ground one night.
Chad built a fire in the fire place with the kids. We toasted marshmallows and had smores for family home evening. Since Chad is not a big camper, we need to share that campfire experience with the kids somehow.
Perhaps this reasoning is why we gave in to the kids request to sleep by the fire Sunday night. They spent the whole night in the playroom sleeping on our air mattress. My kids are braver than me. I remember being terrified of my house at night. Thankfully they went to sleep quickly and woke up well rested in the morning. I have to remember that the experience went well. I'm hesitant to let the kids sleep out of their beds for whatever reason. Maybe because I'm still scared of my house at night.

So that is where I got my fear of mom and dad's house! I was always scared to go out in the living room at night. I think its mostly because it is so open! I still get scared when we stay there!!

I bet it will be a memory that they cherish for a very long time.
