Fridays with Fred: The Reading TeePee

Today's Fridays with Fred is all about books and Fred of course. For those that don't know, I have two hellions - spawns from my demon husband.  Anyway, my son's birthday is in November and one year to celebrate his special day, we made him a teepee.  And now every year, during the months of October/November, we pull our the teepee and have renamed it the...The Reading Teepee.  Cool, huh?  We think so and so does Fred.  When the hellions and I are in the tent, Fred's squishes his way in there too, dying to be part of the action.  Silly dog.  And from time to time, I catch him sneaking in the tent for some shuteye.  I can totally relate to this, because I've done that once too w/ my daughter.

Anyway, I took this pix, so you could see the Fred hanging in The Reading Teepee.

Want to make your own Reading Teepee?  Send me an email and I'll show you how it's done.  Be sure and check out Schatze over at Mary’s BookHounds too.  
Have a good weekend.

Love the reading teepee...reminds me of being a kid and sitting under the table with my books with a blanket over one of the chairs to "hide" me.

Fred looks comfortable!
