I almost forgot, it has been a whole week since my sister slept over….and I swear I am still catching up on sleep. That child stays up late and gets up early, I am not sure how she does it!
After a day full of eating Mom’s awesome Thanksgiving dinner (brownie points) I figured letting my sister stay over and watching movies was a perfect way to relax and unwind, maybe call it an early night. First we watched Monsters, Inc., a favorite of ours and then Monsters Vs. Aliens, which I never saw but was actually pretty good. Then I figured bedtime, but she was still wide awake so we watched Kung Fu Panda and then I fell asleep. Don’t worry I when I woke up and she was eating Rollos and Nerds. Whoops! Should have known to hide the candy!
I did use her to my advantage while I had her and we made snickerdoodle cookies. I need to borrow her more often for other baking days. Perfect little helper….although she somehow makes a mess while helping, still figuring that part out.
Being the best big sister ever, I promised her Menchies for breakfast. Menchies didn’t open til 11am so we ended up having a hearty bowl of cereal since she was up at 6:30am (why do kids get up so early). Did some shopping and then headed to menchies for an early lunch.
If you are wondering what was in her mix this time, Chocolate cherry cordial and vanilla swirled yogurt and Pumpkin and pecan praline swirled yogurt, topped with reeses, coconut, peanuts, walnuts, almonds, white chocolate chips, m&ms, gummy worms, gummy bears, peaches, strawberries, cherries, blackberries, mandarin oranges, pineapples, chocolate syrup, marshmallow syrup, caramel sauce and butter scotch sauce. I am not sure how she could stomach that combination but she loved it and finished the whole bowl (which of course was filled to the top).
I am probably the only one with a little sister 20 years younger than me but what do you do for fun with your siblings?
Do you have an even weirder Menchies combination?
