This is long past due for posting. We had our second family night last Tuesday, but left for a visit “back home” (Kentucky) on Wednesday, so I haven’t had time to post the pics. I LOVE this family night thing…movie night was fun!
Here’s what we did:
We don’t have a flat screen TV to go over the fire place. We want one really bad, but don’t have that kind of cheese (money). So, we have to watch television in our room (there’s a small tv in Eze’s room for the kids to share too). So the girls made this sign and put it on the outside of our bedroom door. It says: Welcome to the movies. Now playing: Bolt.
I had the idea for us to watch the movie in the car like we were at a drive-in, but our car (a Pacifica) is too small and our family too big. The kids spread out towels on our bedroom floor instead. On the menu was nacho’s (in the pan like at the movies), popcorn, a rare cup of soda (whole foods brand of course…no HFCS nor color additives), and an even more rare box of movie candy (courtesy of Wal-Mart).
Of course the kids’ favorite part was the candy and popcorn. Tae picked out Whoppers (unfortunately my fave too…I ate most of them myself), Kendi had gummy jolly ranchers, I had M&M’s, and Shaun had Reese’s Cups, Ezekiel had some of EVERYTHING. He was sooo wired by bed time. It reminded me why I never give them candy (that and the cavities of course). I had to go to 2 different targets to find those popcorn boxes. It was worth it though..they were so cute.
Shaun with his King Sized Reese’s Cups…they’re his favorite.
Bolt was a really cute movie. Fun was had by all!
Ideas for this week? Tae suggested a Walt Disney night. Have no idea what you do with that. She’s been into Walt Disney facts lately…not sure where that came from. We’ll have to see what we come up with.
