Thanks to Aunt Laura and the book Every Day a Holiday, we were able to celebrate Drinking Straw Patented Day earlier in the week with straw races and chocolate milk. :) Today we celebrated Joy Germ Day, which is actually Sunday, but we wanted to start a little early. :) The concept is that you spread joy all day long like a germ. When I asked the girls this morning what we could do to spread the joy, Maggie said, "With a smile!" I thought that was pretty profound. Smiling is the easiest, most affordable and effective way to spread joy to others. So we've been smiling at everyone we see. :) Luckily today was also crazy beautiful outside- 67 sunny degrees- so we spent a lot of time outside. We had a picnic in the front yard, after which the girls entertained Sam and me with an impromptu circus. Here's my beautiful Allie doing the tightrope:
In honor of Joy Germ Day, I'm hoping to add a playlist with a few songs that make me extremely happy. If you don't like music, you can turn it off. Otherwise, enjoy!!
