Family Night: Pillows, Pajamas, Popcorn!

I'm sure it goes without saying why we have not had a planned Family Night in a while! But, I have been feeling a draw to getting it going again. A week or so ago - I sat and wrote out a bunch of ideas for future Family Nights!

We were all ready for a night to just relax and be together and it was so nice! I made a big batch of popcorn, which I don't usually like - but it tasted good since we rarely have it. It was fun to serve it in these vintage popcorn containers I found last Fall! I slipped a quart sized Ziploc inside so I can reuse them.

We all got in our pj's, piled a bunch of pillows on the living room floor and snacked. We read, we laughed, we relaxed - it was perfect!

When Emily found out I was making popcorn, she exclaimed, "I LOVE popcorn! Pink popcorn!" Well, our popcorn was not pink - but it was cute that she was so excited!

Mama - your magazine is so much more fun than our toys or books!

Cute baby with nice pillows and eating popcorns. Apart from this we can also have pillows in the shape of pet animals.
