The Perfect Ending to a Beautiful Sabbath Day

After the good day I had at church with my kids, we came home and had an even better evening. As we gathered around the table for dinner, we reminisced about the good old days when they were all younger. We talked about monkey brains(yogurt with food coloring in it) that Jeff would make them and they had to promise not to eat while he stepped away for a moment. They thought it was so funny that when he would come back they had eaten it all gone. Somehow Jeff got them to eat their food better when it was monkey brains instead of actual yogurt - I don't know why that sounded better to them. We ended the day with a tradition of ours on Sunday evenings. When the little ones go to bed, we pull the games out. We always have a good time with the kids and Jeff being goofy and not playing right and me telling everyone to play the game right. I'm just thankful our kids enjoy being with us.

Another tradition in our family is drinking hot chocolate in the winter. Here Taylor is trying out her new recipe she found for hot vanilla.
