family night... all about ellie

for family night tonight we focused on ELLIE!!
ellie picked out her FAVORITE dessert for the treat- cotton candy sherbet push pops
her FAVORITE game to play- Hi Ho Cheery OH!
i printed out an All About Me sheet (see here) and had each kid fill out what they thought Ellie's favorites were.  
My favorite part was where it said, I am BEST at...  ellie wrote:
-Climbing- Monkey Bars (then she copied what anna wrote about her)
-Being a good sister
-Cleaning the house
-Feeding the fish and frog.
-Jakob said that ellie was BEST at... make believe.
-Drew said that ellie was BEST at... playing and TACKLING.
(It is a well-known fact around these parts that Ellie can hold her own in a wrestling match.)

next week we'll do another kid...  
easy and fun.

Great idea! I had a dream the other night that I flew to your house to visit. It was a crazy fun dream.
