A picnic of S'mores.....on our living room floor....

I saw the idea here....to make little gift boxes with all of the ingredients for S'mores and giveaway for Christmas.  I love this idea.

So when buying the stuff to give away....I decided to get one for us, too.

I worked all weekend....and this morning when I got home Parker was asking to cut down another bag from the advent calendar.  I asked Geoff what today's activity was.....and he quickly responded with..."I don't know, Mommy.....I haven't looked at it yet"...with a half smile on his face.....because we both knew good and well there was nothing planned!  ;)  (see- this is definitely my 'project', but was happy to discover that he had taken over for the weekend when I clearly had forgotten)

So......delirious from tiredness.....luckily- I remembered the s'mores.  Geoff had already said that he wanted to make something easy for dinner....as opposed to the eating out that we do way too much of these days.

So I quickly wrote on a piece of paper....something about how tonight was S'mores night.

Since we've never done this before- she didn't know what to look forward to, but was content nonetheless.

But after dinner was over.....she got very, very excited to know that we would be having a picnic in the living room......and that it involved....chocolate.  She was a big helper in getting everything to the living room....and her excitement was contagious...and so Grace (really not knowing at all what was going on) was excited, too.

And so....we had a picnic of s'mores....on our living room floor.....









I gave up on my camera and figuring out all of the setting.... and switched to my phone...
















Parker said at least 2 times, I know... "This is so much fun."  

Makes it a winner in my book.
