Pillow Fort Fun with Pop Secret!

One of Lily's favorite activities is building pillow forts!  Sometimes they're elaborate, sometimes they're simple, but rest assured, they are her favorite!   When you sleep in the bottom bunk, pillow forts are pretty much a daily occurrence, but the excitement for Lily never wanes! That's one of my favorite things about her...she's just as excited the 75th time as she was the first. 

This fort was the first time she got Violet up into her bed with her. "I'll 'pre-tect' her, Mama!"

Our next pillow fort is going to have lights, she said! Good thing I have some battery powered snowflake lights, we'll work into it this weekend. 

One of Violet's favorite activities is snacking. You think I'm kidding, but that baby loves to snack!

Combining the two is perfect for my girls on a snowy afternoon!  Mind you, we didn't get dumped on like further East, but we did get 6 inches of snow and that's plenty good for me! What better way to spend a cold wintry afternoon having some Pop Secret popcorn and hanging out in a pillow fort?! #PopSecretForts couldn't have picked a better time to have a fun, memorable promotion! 

The girls woke up from their afternoon nap and we decided we'd make an easy fort upstairs in the livingroom just to snack and lounge in.  Perfection for both of them!  Andrew decided he'd help out too even though this one would just be for the girls, he wanted to help with the construction then hang out on the floor for some snacks with his baby sister.  He's such a good big brother! He even picked out the snowman bowls for our snowy afternoon popcorn snack

Violet was excited to have her snack as always and thrilled to be inside the fort! I love the joy that comes from the simplest things and just exudes from her!

Peeking at her big brother is the cutest ever!

Violet decided it was time for her to run around again, so Lily climbed in to spend some time lounging, snacking, and playing on the iPad.

I love these memories made with my kids and even when it's a simple pillow fort, I know I will never forget, even if they are too little to remember.
