Twinkle, twinkle

 There is nothing better in the world than nights like last night.
After a terrific Halloween and then getting up at 3am to work 4am-Noon, I knew it would be a challenge for the rest of the day. Exhaustion is not even close to how I felt by 6pm.
We all made it to bedtime with no bumps in the road. Phew.
I got the kiddos to bed and myself shortly after. Liv comes out about half an hour later to use the potty and asks if she can come to my bed.
Sure, Babycakes.
We must have laid there for 20 minutes or so looking at the twinkling stars out the window by my bed.
She is so funny.
She argued with me about how they were twinkling too much to be stars and they were probably helicopters instead. Also stars can't look like purple.
Did you know people fly from California to Maine in Helicopters? I say, well usually long distances like that take a big airplane. Her answer, Well the President flies around in a helicopter.
You know what? You're right.
I had to investigate the twinkling stars myself today because I was so surprised at the amount of twinkle last night. I am sharing a little explanation below.   
Find some time to look at the stars with someone you love.
There is nothing like it.
