Making good on promise number two...

As promised, the girls and I enjoyed an overnight sleep-over in the treehouse Sunday night. With much cooler temps, we kicked off our evening with a marshmallow roast.

While we slept, the temps dipped down near 48. With all that insulation and Chris's wonderful construction, the treehouse stayed very warm and toasty.

A movie, board games, and lots of giggling helped fill the night.

The girls slept up in the loft, while I slept on the floor on top of 10 blankets.

A wonderful way to end our summer adventures.


XOXO

Lucky girls-such a fun Mom!
I am welcoming the cooler temps...ready for fall!
I am about 75% done decorating for Halloween but still tweaking along with fussing with my Halloween tree. think I will drive to Midland for pumpkins again this year. When I am ready (will I ever stop fussing?!), I will let you know I am ready for you to visit!
Enjoy the day!

What sweet memories you and the girls are making! I am so sorry that it is back to such an early morning for all of you.

I showed Tori the pictures of your tree house, and she then wanted to call her Paws to begin her playhouse right away! We are hoping to begin that project in the spring. I have some plans in the making...I just hope that it turns out as cute and cozy as yours!

Tell the girls to have a wonderful first day of school! I will say a prayer for them to have an extra special school year...
Much love,
Cindy
