I LOVE our tradition of family fun night. It is these fun times and memories that cements/bonds are family together. Last Friday was a very typical FFN. The plan is as follows:
Eat pizza- frozen Frescetta(pizza-frozen or fresh is a must for FFN), drink soda(pretty much only night kids can) and answer a few questions for Table Topics Family Edition. I love it- Joy will pull a card and pretend to read it and then make up her own question like “What is your favorite outfit?”
Watch a movie while we are all on the couch totally unplugged. No phones or laptops.
Redbox or free library DVD when i actually plan ahead. but did not tonight so paid a few bucks to rent Madagascar 3 from Amazon. Eat processed cheese popcorn or microwave popcorn(try to avoid that since becoming a hippie-read the bag is lined with teflon kind of stuff-yummy)
Have dessert, usually ice cream. Tonight it was the mini ben and jerry’s so we each get the flavor we want. A buck a pop is still cheaper than Cold Stone or YoPop. I have really tried to limit their desserts to Friday, sometimes everyday of the weekend they get something or any time we have people over so probably more sweets than i would like. but that is ok- live a little.
Dance Party/Wrestle match/Daddy chase them around the living room(we have a convenient lap already in the layout of downstairs). They had fun dancing to the music at the end of Madagascar 3, Afro Circus.
I love planning these nights. sometimes i theme it up and get creative. it is like a chance to plan a weekly party-love it
so fun! you guys really inspired us with this and being intentional and planning fun together.
As i typed this post, i thought you would be the queen of FFN. Because you know how to pick a theme and really go with for a party. you really know how to theme it up!
