Tackle it Tuesday

Ok, this weeks tackle really isn't "my" tackle. It's really the kiddos tackle. A few weeks ago they were feeling guilty because they'd been fighting like crazy and I was at my wits end. Everything finally came to a head one night and all four of us ended up not so happy-DH included. So a little later that evening they come down from the bonus room and give us a note telling up they wanted to make us dinner one night. We could choose- "skety", soup or meatballs. We chose skety and meatballs.

Well, last night they decided it was The Night- they were going to fix dinner for us. Of course they had a "little" help from the grown-ups, but they did help. Then they set the table, lit the candles and served us our food and took their dinner upstairs and ate in the bonus room- with only one trip downstairs during the entire meal. And that interruption was for Mark to whisper to his Dad that he should ask me to dance!- which he did and we did!

Here are a few pictures:
We all had a great time! They said they need to do that more often and then said "Maybe we'll do it once a year for you"! Kids, ya gotta love 'em!!!
