Family Night: Pollyanna

Our plan for Family Night this week was rained out, so we stayed home and had a little "Bazaar" theme to go with the bazaar in Pollyanna!

I asked David to bring these lanterns down from the attic, I had made them a couple of years ago for the 4th of July. They are so easy to make, here are the directions I used.

For dinner, I served:

BBQ Chicken Sandwiches
Corn on the Cob
Oven Fries

Then, we all got on the couch and watched the movie - halfway through, we stopped for dessert. This was a free cake I had gotten recently, not as high and pretty as the one served in Pollyanna, but we all enjoyed it!

While Gary was out of town, the girls and I had "Popcorn and a Movie" night. We watched Pollyanna!! =)

So glad you had fun. I was actually going to ask Mom today how she prepares those BBQ sandwiches--Jody gave us the leftover grilled chicken and I thought that would be a good way to fix it.

love you, me

My Dear,
What a wonderful, creative, and quick idea to come up with since your original plans had to be cancelled. And how is it that you have all this energy with 2 little ones and another on the way?

Thanks for sharing your family night with us!
