I remember mom and dad setting up our card table in the living room. We had pizza and salads with Western dressing topped with crumbled up Ritz crackers. The shows were Mork and Mindy and The Muppets I remember it like it was yesterday. It was so much fun doing something different. I don’t know if we only did it a few times but I remember it like a tradition. I think of all the special little things my parents did with my sister and I as kids and it inspires me to try to make some memories for my little ones. I hope they remember a few of these easy little things we do as a family the way I do.
My kids love family movie night, even the nights where they select the same movie they have seen 100 times and we have no snacks. This week however we broke out the popcorn and candy. The kids were so excited to have a ” movie party” It just took a few minutes and made it so much more special. Oh and the fact we do not eat in the family room made it “the best day ever”.
