Sibling Appreciation Night

Pin It

The girls and I were excited to spend the evening showing our love for Guy during "Sibling Appreciation Night" at Family Home Evening.

Scarlett helped me earlier in the day by drawing pictures for/of Guy...

...and helping me create a list of the things that we like about Guy.

When we picked Guy up from school, we told him that we had a surprise for him.

He liked the anticipation of a special surprise just for him...and the fact that he was allowed to pick out FIVE of his favorite candies for the evening's treat.

Since reading is his newly discovered talent, Guy had to read/decipher the things we had written about him.  After he read them he hugged the person who said those things about him...and we all got a piece of his favorite candy.  Steve had to work late unexpectedly, but he made it home near the end.

Everyone got candy.  And everyone got loved.

Voila, FHE night #2.
