Creature Features

Does anyone remember Creature Features? It was a show on late at night on the weekend that played two monster/scary movies and you were allowed to stay up to watch Creature Features each week as late as you wanted. If you were like me, you “just rested your eyes” at the first commercial and then proceeded to sleep through the whole rest of the movie(s).

Marc was telling Signa about Creature Features a couple of weeks ago and she got very excited and wanted to watch it. Since it isn’t on anymore and DVDs are now invented, they planned a Creature Features Night for the coming Saturday night. All week long, they planned Creature Features Night- what movies they would watch (Frankenstein and Them), what snacks they would have (popcorn and hot chocolate), and Signa even drew at least 46 maps of the house and where they would sit in relation to where the television is in the living room.

Saturday night finally came and Will and I bid them good night at 8:30. We kissed them and hugged them and wished them a ton of fun for Creature Features Night.

At 9:10, Marc carried the sound-asleep Signa to bed.

Last Saturday was the second try for Creature Features Night. This time she made it to 9:40pm.

Guess who takes after Momma?

    love this story and Signa is a girl after my own heart:

    Signa even drew at least 46 maps of the house and where they would sit in relation to where the television is in the living room.

    So funny how little minds obsess over certain things.

    When I had my first slumber party I spent hours drawing maps and diagrams of where everyone would sleep in relation to the tv and games. Completely relate. :)
