Jim and I were treated to a "fancy lunch" date in our own dining room yesterday. The girls prepared fettuccine alfredo and garlic toast, poured our drinks and set the table with a candle.
They insisted we dress up to enjoy our meal, so I put on the new skirt I made Thursday night with heeled sandals, Jim buttoned up his favorite striped blue shirt and we sat at the table enjoying our lunch. Alex and the girls at on the back porch to give us privacy to talk, thank God for our blessings and enjoy our Italian food.
Our date came complete with a bill we had to sign. I don't like bills, but I often pay them 50 cents for helping with dinner anyway. Actually it's pretty infrequently that I make them help with much of dinner. My goal was once a week with each of them, but I am a slacker. That is why there are no pictures of me, Jim or the food at The Sister Spectacular! For those of you who object to paying for regular household tasks or just wonder more about how I do it, feel free to read Chores.
Jim and I are so blessed by wonderful children, who are giving, loving and know how to put together a decent date!
