Who Knew Cooties Could be so Much Fun!?

Friday, November 20, 2009

Friday nights are family fun night at the Goff house. It's the one night of the week when we're not already booked up with church, work, etc. We usually make home-made pizza (we've been refining our whole wheat crust for months now!), watch a movie, etc... but tonight, we decided to play the game Cootie. I had never played it or even heard of it for that matter... but I was at Target the other day and they had it marked down to $5. It looked like the perfect game for a preschooler... counting, taking turns, no reading required! Yea! Well, Grace LOVES playing Cootie and, quite frankly, so do I. We had a lot of fun creating our little cooties. And, of course, Grace won.

We also did a little pre-decorating this evening. We brought up the tree and set it up. I always forget how much I hate hooking up lights... ugh. But, the highlight was Grace decorating the tree... I've not even pulled out the ornaments yet, but Grace has already starting "decorating" it with her own "ornaments". Too sweet. I have a feeling our Christmas tree will be EXTRA special this year.

Girl - leave those Christmas lights on the darn tree! Store the the whole in your basement. Next Christmas rolls around, haul it up the stairs and plug that sucker in! DONE! I've been doing it for years!
