You Might Be A Redneck...

If you camp out in the living room...
in a tent...
on top of two mattresses...

Yep. That's Jon Paul and Rachel.

We started a tradition last year when we rang in 2007.
We let Rachel stay up until midnight, if she could make it.
She made it.
We roasted marshmallows in the fireplace.
We drank eggnog.
We played games and watched the ball drop.
And she and her Daddy slept in the tent.

Last year, we put the tent on a memory foam mattress pad.
This year, the mattress pad is on our bed.

So, what to do?
For Daddy, the floor is just too hard to sleep comfortably.
The solution is in the photo.
We took the mattress off Rachel's trundle bed for Jon Paul to
sleep on and we blew up our travel air mattress for Rachel.

There you have it.
We're rednecks.

I love how your dh sleeps with a huge smile on his face. He must be having sweet dreams! ;)
You've confirmed it. We're rednecks! Only ours is a playroom and a full sized tent. We bought dd a tent for a previous birthday and found that tent camping was overrated. So now it goes up in the playroom sometimes and gets used for a month or so and then comes down.
The kids love it. Sometimes dh joins them. Me? I won't give up my bed. I'm too old.
