The ULTIMATE Marshmallow Fight | Celebrate Every Day With Me Are you looking for five minutes of true family fun? Get Ready! This will be one of those things that delight your kids, make you laugh as a family and create great memories. In fact, this is one of my favorite memories of the last few weeks and the kids are still talking about it! The History: It started when I got the munchies one day and grabbed a bag of mini-marshmallows. Then a couple Saturdays ago, Dan and I had a mini-marshmallow fight during lunch. So I created this note and bag of “ammo” and taped it to the door. The kids each got their own bag of mini-marshmallows. Sweet Boy kept announcing, “I am so excited!” But then the door opened and we jumped out and began throwing marshmallows at Dan. I have always loved the statement, “Families that play together stay together.”

We married right before finals at the end of the year—I was only 19! So young! :) My freshman year I always made fun of the girls in the MFHD program (Marriage, Family, Human Development) because I thought all they wanted to do was get married--and that didn't equate to my accounting/business oriented mind. Boy was I shocked with myself when after we were married I decided to switch to the MFHD program! Going from years by ourselves and then throwing kids into the mix has been an interesting experience. From my schooling and experience I've learned that to keep marriage going strong sometimes you have to shake things up. The Weekly Marriage Shake Up (To thoroughly knock the socks off your spouse!)
