Why Not?

When my Dad called and offered to provide a steak dinner for a Monday night I told myself "Why Not?" So what if it's a weekday. So what if grilling in freezing temperatures isn't the norm. Who in their right mind would pass up a steak dinner, games and family?
Grandpa entertained the kids while Rick grilled up the steaks.
Look at this Monday night feast!! We NEVER eat like this on a Monday night.

Even Holly enjoyed every little morsel. She's into smearing food on her face right now. Weird.
We had FHE with everyone. Something we have only done a few times since everyone moved close. Heather gave an awesome lesson and the kids gave some sweet and hilarious comments.
And to top it all off, Steph made Creme Brulee for dessert. Why Not? It was divine. I didn't want our perfect Monday night to end too soon so I talked Dad into staying to play Power Grid. We missed you Bud! I lost both times we played but loved an excuse to stay up late, playing games on a Monday night. Thanks Fam for giving us an excuse to have a party at the first of the week, instead of at the end. It was a great way to start the week.

And here's a few random pictures just for fun.
And a video so everyone can know not to get in Holly's face. She is not one to mess with. I suppose that's what happens when you're trying to compete with three other kids!

Why not? I'm starting to wondering why this doesn't happen more often! Mmmm, I'm hungry. Love the video of course. I'm just trying to convince myself that she didn't learn it from Sage.

I wish every day could be a why not day. Why do we have to be so responsible?
