Day 189

I am thankful for the great ideas that my mom gives me. She gave me the idea to make the girls a count down chain until we go visit her....this is because Ella had been asking everyday if today was the day to go to grandma's house (She is SO excited). But a twist on the idea is that on every chain you write an activity or a chore for them to do when they take the chain off. Some of them are do 10 jumping jacks, give your mom a hug, clean your room, have a piece of gum, etc. Well, today Ella picked the chain that said to make popcicles....something easy enough that she can do it by herself. Thanks for the great idea mom!

I love the 'twist' and am going to copy that for sure! That would be such an fun Christmas Countdown idea with kids. I love your picture.
