Friday Nights are Alright!

Boy, do the weekends take on a different life after you have kids!! It used to be, "Where are we going? What are we doing? Where is the party?" but now, it's all about STAYING HOME, settling in, and enjoying some time with my children. Greg works on Friday nights, so it's just me and Cannon and Harper.
A while back, Cannon and I discovered that the new Antenna Channel airs a 3 hour chunk of The Three Stooges from 6-9 on Friday nights.
Good, clean fun, right? All week long, Cannon will ask, "Are the 3 Stooges on tonight? Is our party tonight?" We all look forward to our Friday night pajama party!

I have been letting them pick a special treat to snack on while we watch. Sometimes it's crackers and cheese, sometimes popcorn, sometimes even doughnuts! Last night, Cannon picked strawberry shakes, and HE wanted to make them. He did a great job! Yummmmyy!

Then we get everyone snuggled up in the bed with their favorite blankets, and watch. And sometimes, if you're lucky, Cannon will re enact scenes for you. ;) Nyuck Nyuck Nyuck!

I just might stop on by one of these Fridays....although traffic may be bad!

It sounds a lot like our Friday nights! Well, not the 3 Stooges so much, but a treat and a movie all together.

It's true, when you have kids EVERYTHING changes! What a fun memory for you all!

What a fun Friday night. Your perspective sure changes after kiddos.

What fun! We tried doing family movie nights a while back and it flopped! Too much arguing about what to watch, who got to sit where, who had the remote, whether the light was on or off, someone breathing too loudly or invading someone else's space, etc. I'm glad you are having such sweet times with your kiddoes.

I love that you do something like this every Friday and that Cannon knows the fun that's in store! Plus, who can resist the 3 Stooges? ;o)
