We had a fabulous, but busy day.
My daughter and I sold Girl Scout Cookies this morning. We set everything up for our cookie booth & then realized we forgot her vest. Luckily a phone call later & Jason dropped it off. The bigger blessing was that while he was there, I ran into the grocery store & bought sun screen. It was 70 degrees & we were in direct sunshine for 4 hours! I can't really complain because most years we are freezing and I am buying hand warmers.
After our booth sale we went on a 2.86 mile hike at Red Rocks. It was just too nice to stay inside. Especially knowing we have snow and cold weather coming Sunday afternoon.
For dinner my sweet daughter decided to play waitress for our family dinner.
She made decorations for the table, made all of us cards and then served dinner as our waitress. She made little paper box trays to put chocolates in and little slips of paper for us to write song suggestions on while we dined. She puts so much effort into every holiday to make them extra special and beautifully personal.
I chose "Ring of Fire" by Johnny Cash and Jason chose "Gold Digger". We danced our way through our fabulous hamburger dinner. Then I had Lana chose a slow song so Jason & I could dance.
I love that 4 years after my divorce, the kids don't find it odd to see me slow dancing in the dining room. I am glad affection is a normal part of them seeing grown ups.
Once we realized we were being filmed, we stopped. Jason said he was happy that he hadn't gone full sprinkler, but I had to ask him why not? Wasn't that the whole point of the movie Hitch (which is one of his favorite all time movies?)
I went & danced with Lana in her room to Uptown Funk! Ok, so maybe I don't want my dance moves video taped, but I do want my kids to have goofy memories of me dancing. I clearly remember my dad's moves~aka the Bill Cosby!
The only thing missing was my son. He is up in the mountains skiing with his Boy Scout Troop and his dad. He said he went tubing and got the snot beat out of him flying all around. I am grateful I got to wish him a Happy Valentines, but I miss the hug I would get if he had been here.
The we ended the evening with the movie Blended with Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler. So funny and so sweet and a perfect way to end a day of blended family fun!
