Happy Posts

So, I am going to follow in my sister's footsteps and have a happy post every week. I think every Thursday will be the day of my happy post. We all need a little happy in our lives! 

This week the thing that made me most happy was watching Jeff help my niece, Violet, make a tent on the couch! Tents are happy things. My sister and I made tents all the time out of couch cushions and blankets when we were kids. There was something so cool with being inside the tent after we made it!

For this particular type of tent all you really need is a big stick and some sheets.

We ended up needing something to stabilize the stick so Jeff used his guitar stand, seemed to work pretty well (even though you can't see it in the picture).

There you have it....a tent!

Fishsticks in a tent make Violet happy..... does watching American Idol from inside a tent....

 ....and peeking out through the side of a tent!

Too cute... my children LOVE to make tents but I don't slow down enough to assist and take part - you inspire me to do that.

Make it a great day!
