#NaPhoPoMo Day 12...A reason to celebrate!

Today is November 12, 2013 

A more exciting way to see this date would be ~
11 - 12 - 13

Today is also 
DAY 12 
in this wonderful journey of photographing for the #NaPhoPoMo challenge!

This is the way our day started out:

My kids really have the greatest Dad...
this morning before he left for work, 
he called everyone downstairs, 
acting all serious like...
then wrote down some numbers on a paper saying this was a very special day. 
Side note: 
Our kids are ALWAYS pointing out "special numbers" on the clock, 
such as 11:11 or 3:33 or 12:34, 
you get the idea...
it's fascinating to them. 
(yes, I am sure this is my fault...I'm a little weird sometimes and I'm fairly certain it is rubbing off on them!!!)

So Chad shows them that today is 11-12-13 
and that is the ONLY time 
this will EVER happen in their lifetime!!! 
In unison,
the 3 youngest yelled out shrieks of excitement...
so, in honor of our craziness around here, 
I decided we should have a PARTY tonight at 9:10 to celebrate!!! 


Party at 9:10 on 11-12-13...
Mighty Fantastic Plan, if you ask me!!!

And PARTY we did!!!
Homemade Maracas were made for the special occasion...
yep...two bottles of sprinkles taped together...PERFECTION!

Banana Splits with whip cream, chocolate syrup and sprinkles ... check!

Banana Splits ready and waiting...
KIDS are all WAY READY!!!
And tired of waiting...
9:10 seems to NEVER get here when you are watching the clock!
And it is time to celebrate a time that none of us will ever see again.

Time to dig in to this delicious bowl!

Good to the very last drop!

Party night was a success...
We should really do this for no real reason more often!


Don't we all need to have more things to celebrate in life?

My theory...
make 'em up
if they don't already exist!!!
