Seems like most families who have family nights have them on Friday night. Friday night is Wes' and my date night, so we chose another night. We don't have it every week, but we're planning to tonight. We chose Wednesday for our family night after our church moved its mid-week Bible study to Thursday nights. We were used to going to church on Wednesday night, so we decided we'd make that our family night to keep something going on that night!
Tonight we're planning to play some games. Beth is making brownies, and the boys have walked to the store to get ice cream. I'll probably pop some popcorn (to keep myself from eating the brownies and ice cream). What is it about eating together that makes us feel that every family gathering must involve food? LOL The boys just called from the store; they're looking for some no-sugar-added ice cream for me. Now isn't that sweet of them?! :)
What are some things that your family does together? I'd love to hear your ideas. We usually play a game, which the kids love, but it would be fun to find some other things to do too. Our favorite games are Balderdash, Phase 10, Skipbo, and Uno Attack. I think it would be fun to sing together just for fun, or maybe start a story and each person add a bit to it. With our family, there's no telling what turn that would take! ;) Andrew is known for his goofy humor, and Samuel has a hilarious knack for making up imaginary conversations and sound effects. So give us your ideas - we might just find something new to do that will become a family tradition!
