Family night....and AG's money

We made "football food" tonight (wings, nuggets, cheese sticks, potato skins, etc) and watched Shrek 3 during dinner. It's the first time in a while we were all able to enjoy the same movie. A good time was had by all!

Anna Grace, our non-sleeping child, has finally spent the past 5 nights in her own bed. Previously, she would appear in our room between 2 and 4am and spend the remainder of the night on our floor in her sleeping bag. A bribe from daddy offering a shiny new penny each time she stayed in her own bed has now earned her a whole five cents. Who knows why she decided to stay in her own room at night but we are glad she is doing it. She gets a better nights sleep so is not so crabby the next day. As soon as she hears someone up though, she is out of bed. In fact, today she started yelling for me just before 7 saying "when are you getting up mom!". Keep your fingers crossed that this trend continues. :-)

I am oh so envious! Mae still wants someone is her room with her! Jane sleeps like a champ so I am reluctant to pull her out of her crib and put her in Mae's room. This summer when Jane turns 3 and is too big for the crib we will be trying this out but for now Mommy is on the trundle part of Mae's bed.
