This week at Mt. Hope Chronicles Living Lovely with Family we're discussing special treats, random surprises, and seasonal activities.
I'm typing with one hand, while holding the baby, so I will just list a few.
Since it's March Madness time, I'll tell you about filling out our brackets. We each fill out our brackets, and keep track of points. Whoever wins gets to pick a place for us to go out to eat. So, we have a little friendly competition...then enjoy dinner out as a family.
We also let each kid pick someplace to go out to for their birthday. This ranges from a nicer restaurant to Chuck E Cheese to a cheaper restaurant and a movie at the dollar theater. Again, we all get to go out together as a family and each kid gets to do something special.
Special treats make me think of food. Some special treats we make only occasionally are lemon shake-ups, fluffy hot chocolate, oven baked caramel corn, and Cheeseball.
We like to take hikes in the warmer months. We always take a drive with hot chocolate at Christmas time to look at lights. We carve a pumpkin together in the fall.
