Sisters Are....

Being an only child I'm learning, right along with my girls, what it is like to have a sister. When Bella was first born there was a big change in Maddie and not for the best. There was jealousy and a sense of not being the center of attention when the baby was first brought home. I knew that this would all change and they would grow to be best friends...Right? Well it has finally happened they are becoming friends and treating each other the way I would expect sisters to treat each other. It has been a struggle for me (the lonely only) to understand why they haven't always been loving and kind to one another. I have always told them that they need to love each other because God has blessed them with each other and not everyone has a wonderful blessing like that. I've prayed for them to understand that it is much more fun to play together than against each other and I can say now that my prayers have been answered!!! Now I know that siblings will not always get along and there will be battles to tend to, but the way my girls have been playing together and respecting each other is not letting me think about those times right now.

Hullabaloo anyone?

A couple of weeks ago a good friend of mine invited my girls and I over to play a new game they got called Hullabaloo. What a great game!! I had to go out and purchase it myself and it was a wonderful investment. After a long day at the local pumpkin farm and a restful sleep, our whole family decided to pull out the game and just enjoy each others company. You can't help but laugh at the silly dances you are prompted to do if you are the winner. Our family has had a hard time jsut being silly and letting loose lately and Hullabaloo just unlocked the door to our silliness:). I would definately recomend this game to any family if you are in need of some funky dancing and some plain old family fun
