After a quick assessment of what we had kicking around, I decided to tell the girls we were going to do an "N" themed dinner night, just for fun. We rounded up some nuggets, noodles and "nanners." We had Neapolitan ice-cream for dessert, but had to get a little creative for drinks -- Megan came up with "New juice boxes," which worked fine enough. Megan and Brooke made up menus while I was whipping up the feast, so that kept them busy and happy.
They were so excited with the theme-y dinner night, you would have thought I was taking them to Chuck E. Cheese or something. They chattered away about what other themes we could have in the future, deciding the next theme would be red.
I love when simple things make my kids happy. I especially love when they remind me that we don't need to go nuts to have fun.
